Earlier yesterday I received a letter that mandated I close TST due to its status as a "non-essential" business. As many others know, Governor Tom Wolf of PA has closed golf courses state-wide, and now is closing all golf-related activity, despite courses in OH, NY, and WV remaining open so long as they follow the proper guidelines.

At midnight tonight, I'm shutting TST down in order to comply with the order from Governor Wolf.

This is a sad day, and I can only hope that we will be able to re-open TST at some point in June or July or whenever we finally get the all-clear.

In the meantime, please consider signing this petition:

Thank you. I'll see y'all on the flip side.

P.S. Please check back tomorrow, as I plan to leave at least a comment form where you can sign your name and forward a pre-written email to Governor Wolf or something in support of allowing TST to continue operating. Our server, after all, isn't in PA.

  • iacas changed the title to TST Shutting Down at Midnight

WTF. Websites that can be kept up from home (if you don't always work from home) have to be shut down? That doesn't make any f***ing sense.

Government truly paints with a broad brush.

Sorry this is happening. It's really kind of an outlet for us who are spending a lot of time looking at walls these days.

The TST corporate offices will be closed as well, which is a large hindrance. There wasn't enough warning to set up proper secure VPN solutions to allow full work-from-home capabilities. We apologize for the inconvenience, but it truly is the only option for the near term moving forwards.

Bonvivant, you'd better get into your April Fools mode.  Sorry to hear Ohio has now closed down all courses, indefinitely...

I changed my reply as to not spoil it. I guess the cats put of the bag now.

They went that way in time to screw my one day off and then they changed their mind. Courses can be open with some heavy social distancing rules in place.

You let me know how that goes. Officially Dayton's still shut.

Windy Knolls is supposed to be opening on Friday. Gonna try to get out there this weekend.

What about all of the IT staff, janitor, marketing department, accounting, that cute little receptionist? How will they survive?

Wait there’s a cute receptionist now? This is what I get for working from a satellite office.

    • Can't find the article or blog but I remember reading about Paul Wood (PING engineer) talking about how from a physics standpoint, more compact heads worked better for more skilled players. Basically a longer/wider face makes it harder for the better player to square up the face and hit the center. This bit hints at it.
    • Even Tom Brady?  When?  Please, for the love of god, tell me when.  😂
    • Day 8.  Spent ten minutes hitting 8-iron and 6-iron indoors, off a mat, into a net.  Took about as many minutes.  Then, I wandered out back to do Speed Sticks.  I haven't read the rules of that encouragement role, but I should:  my last time (before a few minutes ago) using speed sticks, or at least measuring it, was October 25.
    • Just want to add that it's also related to ankle dorsiflexion. So for the last month before each round I'll take the grip end of a club and press it into the top of my calf as I rehearse the backswing and early downswing. Basically I don't want that angle from the foot to the ankle to change. Puts me in a position to work through the hip joint, which means that knee won't collapse inward. Gives me a good feel and reminder before and even during the round.
