I am a bit confused on the new mask mandates. Since I have been vaccinated they say I don't have to wear a mask? Can I go shopping without a mask, or should I be concerned about close quarters with other shoppers? Church? Restaurants? I haven't looked over the new guidelines close enough yet, but I just got back from CVS and I continue to wear my mask.

The guidance is that you can go back to normal minus certain activities like air travel where you might be closer quarters with potentially infected people.  There is also very little risk, per the research, that even if you are infected that it would be serious or you would spread to others.   Very good news for people with young kids.

my wife and I are taking it slow nonetheless.   We are going to see where the numbers are before we go back to the gym, but things are looking good.

Well, it does involve bleach...

I think the efficacy has been proven, period. When vaccinated groups start showing more resistance than unvac'd groups, to me that is proof.

Have you read the science on this?  Where are you getting your information? This isn’t like some random policy where there are different rules for different people.  The same people who develop, produce and advocated for these vaccines were among the first people taking them.

I have a fear of foreign things in my body.   I don’t like to take medicine if I think my immune system benefits from beating something on its own.   I read up and got my first shot as soon as I could.   It’s the right thing to do.

I genuinely applaud you for doing what you feel was the right thing for you to do.

Since you aren’t getting the shot, can you please put masks on those emojis?

I get the fear about long term effects if you think about COVID as some magic novel never encountered virus but once you remember it is just a strain of the cold then it is hard to really believe the medical technology behind the vaccine is so poorly understood that it could lead to such issues.

I didn't have to get tested at the NCAA National Championship (nor did one of my players) because we were both well beyond our two-weeks-post-second-shot date. We had to show proof, and then we got to skip the every-other-day testing that everyone else had to undergo.

Same deal here, basically.

Do you carry your vaccine card or just a picture of it on your phone?

Utterly ridiculous (as it was in PA last April) that golfers can't play golf in Ontario.

I agree. I think it was a different situation more than a year ago when we didn't know what we know now.

My card is at home in our safety box.

I only needed a photo at the NCAAs. And my regular ID (I used my school ID).

  I had my first shot of the AZ a few weeks ago. I felt a fever coming on about 12 hours later, and spent about a day and half feeling like the poo.  After that it was pretty smooth sailing.

 

  Of course, now Canada is looking to be in short supply of follow up shots with that vaccine, and the Pfizer became readily available about a week later.  That's my luck, but I'm glad that i at least have one shot so far.

Did they want just the front or both sides? There really nothing on the back of mine.

So when you refused to take all the required vaccines for enlistment into the Marines, what did they say?

Have you read my previous posts?  

I’m not anti-vac at all.  Just waiting till we know more about this one.

You have all you need to know about the Pfizer, Moderna and J&J vaccines. The same methods to show efficacy and side effects for all other vaccines have been used on these. And these COVID-19 vaccines are showing to be more effective and have less side effects than previous vaccines. Please David, just get the vaccine.

    • So yesterday I tried it. I played from 6280 yds. I haven't done this before. I usually play 5400 - 5700. So why? Because at the driving range some guy had a GC2 and got my driver carry at 214 yds. which with rollout should be around 230. But that's when I get into a groove. Usually I'll have to say it's around 200 carry because of mishitting the ball. But I had to try it. The course is rated 76.5/129. The front 9 was a dumpster fire. I'd locked myself out of my house and long story short, as a result I didn't get to the course but 2 minutes before my tee time. No warm up. No putting. Straight to the first hole and straight to the first duff. It took me 6 holes to warm up - I'm 68. I need to hit about 20 balls to loosen my back. Front 9 ended with a double bogey and a 58. Stopped for a hot dog and two Tylenol.  Back 9. I was determined to play better. I'd been going for pars on the front 9. I decided to play for bogeys. Stress-free back 9. I shot 45. One GIR. 18 putts. 4/6 Fwys. I left myself shots I liked - 40 to 70 yd. pitches with my 54 wedge. But this is playing for bogeys and not for pars. Some of the par 4s, I just couldn't reach in regulation. Well, I'd have to take the chance of a 7W landing and holding or not landing in a bunker so I just chose to lay up and hit a pitch that I knew I could get to about 9 feet from the hole. My 54 is my bread and butter. 9 straight bogeys.  So 103, but I don't even want to think about the front 9. Just the 45 on the back 9. I don't know if I'm going to do this again. I don't see breaking 90 from that length being possible. Highlights of the round  4th hole: Chipped in to save par. Always read the green when you chip.  12th hole: Lousy lie with the ball way above my feet on the fairway, choked down on a 7i and put it dead center of the fairway on the approach just short of the green. The shot was exactly as planned. The hole has "hell" to the left, two big bunkers in the front, and "more hell" if you go long.  16th hole: Holed out a 35 foot putt to save bogey. 
    • Yeah, but his eye wasn’t getting any better. Six over for the day and shooting two under the last eight holes. If he thought he had a shot and the eye wasn’t bad enough, he would probably have tried. I don’t think people can do the Tiger blaming on the WD.
    • At the point he WD he could not know he would miss the cut. Unfortunate but 6 over with plenty of holes left he could have made the cut. 
    • Thanks! That statement must have have been written by a PA or management company. What 20 something talks like that?     I suppose he was certain of missing the cut, so fair enough. 
    • You should have budgeted more for the hotel than the round of golf 🤣 Hopefully you got a good night's sleep:
