Thanks for the share.   This is very informative.    It makes us realize we aren't out of the woods yet.

Looking at the data models showing the differences in "letting it ride" vs. social distancing controls is very eye opening.

It looks like the US along with other countries are declaring war on the cartels.   They are saying the cartels are trying to take advantage of the pandemic.

The city of Flint, Michigan just announced a curfew from 9 pm to 6 am for all non-essential people.

How is that a restriction? Why not make it 7pm to 9am or something?

Of course they are. A lot of the stimulus money is going to end up in the pockets of drug dealers.

Flint curfew

I can't speak for the mayor but there are still a lot of people ignorant about the virus.

My point was restricting people from 9pm to 6am isn't really much of a restriction. Why not actually put some teeth in it - what could someone non-essential be doing at 6:15 am that they can't do at 9am?

I completely agree with you but they were saying there was a lot of inner city young people hanging out at party stores late in the evening.   This curfew really doesn't do much.    Most of the stores including fast food places have changed their hours around here.

Yeah, okay, at least it'll give some teeth to the enforcement of that if it's going on.

The virus threatens to spread widely across Africa, where several countries have seen hundreds of positive tests, according to Johns...

So currently, even with China's fake numbers, it appears the mortality rate is about 5%.  That's scary.

Random Coronavirus thoughts...

Are we going to do all of this again when the 2nd (mutated) strain of coronavirus (COVID-20?) starts spreading? What about the 3rd... Is this the new normal?

I'm tired of hearing commercials stating that "We are in this together." We should be in this separately, right? Too literal?

If I am going to get COVID-19, assuming that I haven't already, I would rather get it now and get it over with.

What the media and policymakers are not telling us is that the longer we delay the development of herd immunity, the more high-risk people will die.

    • Thanks for creating this thread @iacas. I’m nearly done with a first read of the book. Just starting the Mental Game section. I’m a big fan of Jon Sherman and Practical Golf. I also listen to The Sweet Spot podcast and appreciate what he and Adam are adding to the community.  My initial take: about 80% of what is covered in this book is in Lowest Score Wins. And in many cases, LSW covers it more effectively by giving succinct actionable advice. There’s a theme and flow that both books use: Use information at hand to manage expectations Pick better targets (for driving and approach play) Learn how to drive the ball further Incorporate random practice to supplement blocked practice LSW does a better job IMO of helping steer the reader towards effective use of practice time by introducing the concept of “Separation Value”. Four Foundations is going to help folks that haven’t read LSW. I found myself finishing several chapters with “is that all???”, hoping Jon would provide more details and actionable advice. For example, Jon advocates becoming a “one trick pony” and limiting your menu of golf shots. I think he could have gone further to help players analytically arrive at an appropriate “sub-menu”. So unless you are just a golf book junkie like I am, if you’ve read LSW I don’t think you’ll find much new here.
