BTW, @NatalieB is a +0.6 now

@iacas, While it doesn’t change the outcome, you went above and beyond as a dad and you can be proud of that. A lot of parents would’ve been upset, but I doubt would’ve gone to the lengths you did to

I was just about to suggest that via PM.

It probably won't matter, but I am enjoying how annoyed their secretary might be getting at all of the email(s).

Speaking of "Annoyed", I found this fax number on their web site:  717-697-7721 (Does anybody use Fax anymore?)

A little off topic but yes, lots of financial companies still do. And probably medical? Although nowadays pretty much just sending if you're the customer. Dot matrix printers are still out there. As are mainframes.

True, I am in the financial industry and we have a fax but all we use is eMail and Doc-U-Sign.  Sorry...will stay on topic.

Wow.

One of the best golfers in the state was shut down by her school despite not testing positive for the coronavirus. Due to being held out of the district tournament, she will not qualify for states.

I give up.

What the hell is wrong with people? Just ridiculous.

‘ It’s not unusual for the NBA, MLB or NFL teams having games cancelled or postponed because of COVID outbreaks with their athletes.’

These sports all involve less than 6’ and even direct contact between people. Golf has zero of this. What a moronic decision. And they took this into consideration? Asinine.

The only thing I can understand is the liability and getting sued. Though, I am sure that all the kids parents signed a form stating PIAA is not liable for any injuries or what not. 

to me, it’s just the fact they must punish the entire school because of a few people. There is no nuance at all. It’s just a binary decision. Like somehow it’s preferable treatment to allow them to play golf.

It’s just pure idiocy.

I can't seem to view the link without setting up an account but just the headline pisses me off.  From the little I could see she has not tested positive and the tournament is not until Oct 19 and 20.  I would think they could at least offer her the ability to be tested again and if negative there is no reason to bar her from competition.  There is plenty of time between now and the tournament to get the results back.

It just seems they are a bunch of bureaucrats following a script and not actually thinking. I realize the "Rules are Rules" arguments but this COVID-19 mess necessitates people to make decisions based on facts & circumstances.  I would expect the "Intent" of the rules is to have the best players possible compete in as safe an environment as possible.  If she test negative, then there is no valid reason to exclude her.  This is not like me missing a week at my hacker's golf league, this is a once-in-a-lifetime chance for many and depriving her of the opportunity is a wrong that cannot be righted.  They need to use the gray matter between their ear and make a call based on equity & the relevant facts. That is their responsibility.

I think I little part of all of us just died today.

This is just one more example of a time when "the rules" become more important than common sense.

Here is the whole piece if you can't access it.

Paige Richter doesn’t even have a sniffle and she can swing her clubs just fine so she figured if she showed up Friday morning at Briarwood Golf...

Thx for the link to the full article.  This is totally disgusting and out of control.  It is one thing to take precautions, but this went beyond any necessary precautions.

The school district prefers to take the easy way out and ensure there's no chance they get any blowback from a student getting COVID-19 at the event regardless of how minimal the likelihood is that they contract it.

Might as well not let the kids even go to school ever again with the number of school shootings (sarcasm). Schools are not safe anymore.

Personally I think we're in unchartered territory and now, more than ever, we need some discretionary thinking about how to address these situations rather than a one size fits all approach.  All it's truly doing is causing a disservice and although I understand trying to ensure now one is unnecessarily exposed, I think there's also a CYA aspect that's is a significant motivator.

McDowell withdrew Natalie Brosig and Zoey McClain from the District 10 tournament; D-10 did not allow them to re-enter, so both are out of PIAA event.

Figured.

That is shame. Ass covering of the worst kind. Lacking in any critical thought process. Just dumb.

    • One of the great frustrations of the pandemic is the inconsistencies in rules and restrictions that the various authorities (government or otherwise) put in place. Having the crowds at 80% at the same time as implementing some of these other rules certainly seems inconsistent. As @DaveP043 points out, the situation in the UK is different from the situation here. I don't feel like I know enough about it to bash them too much. Making the trip to The Open has always been something of a hassle for American golfers and the Covid just makes it more so. I wouldn't necessarily blame a player if he decided to stay home.
    • I don’t think they are following the science there. We have to rely on that. I voted yes. 
    • There are a number of places in the article that references government requirements.  I took a quick look through Google, and see that the UK does still have significant restrictions on travelers, including proof of vaccination, testing, and quarantine in some situations.  Those restrictions are going to apply to anyone visiting the country for the tournament.  They are facing a surge in new cases, apparently associated with the Delta variant.  Given all that, its hard to blame the R&A if they're following current government guidelines and restrictions.  And I honestly don't know whether the government policies are excessively restrictive, given the surge this spring from the Alpha variant, and the current surge from Delta.  I'm just barely on the side saying the restrictions aren't too far, given the current situation in the UK.
    • Some examples: “I’m going to go because it’s the British Open. But I certainly thought about not going. I just can’t believe with the numerous examples of successfully run safely held tournaments and majors here that they can’t figure out a better situation,” the player said. “If someone on your plane tests positive on way to the British and is sitting anywhere close to you, you’re out no questions asked, no matter if you’re vaccinated. It’s aggravating that they deem the tournament safe enough for 32,000 fans a day to attend, but won’t let a player’s wife, children travel and watch the tournament, nor will they even let players visit a restaurant without threat of disqualification.” and According to the note sent by the R&A to players, caddies and coaches, those on different player teams will not be allowed to stay together, which makes things difficult for many who travel in support of players. “The up-to-four persons [regulation] within private rental accommodation must be included within the players’ own support group … For example, multiple players or multiple caddies are not permitted to share private self accommodation,” the R&A email read. “We recognise this is difficult for many that used to share during the championship but the Government’s strict contact tracing requirements mean that this will not be possible in 2021. and The potential for being ousted from the tournament has players angry, especially in light of the eased restrictions for patrons. The R&A recently announced that up to 32,000 fans will be able to attend each day at Royal St George’s — that’s 80 percent of the typical 40,000 spectators allowed on the site. “They care more about the revenue of the fans buying beers than they do about the actual people participating in the tournament,” said the player who spoke with Golfweek. “Any fan can go to a grocery store or a restaurant and we can’t. Does that make sense? And I’m vaccinated. How does that make sense?” So, I voted "yes."
    • Players angry, consider skipping Open Championship after R&A hands down strict COVID regulations Some are considering a boycott of the prestigious event and others are simply miffed by the regulations. What do you think about the COVID Protocols at the 2021 Open Championship?   I'll get things started.  I voted "YES" they are going too far.  What is the point of telling players, coaches & caddies that have been living in close proximity for months and most have been vaccinated they cannot share accommodations?  And at the same time allowing @ 80% capacity for fans?  Do testing, etc. similar to the PGA Tour, it seems to have prevented any massive outbreaks for quite some time.  They also claim requirements are for Contact Tracing, if you know who is in the house, RV, etc. Contact Tracing should not be that hard.  By making them separate they may actually increase the number of people they come in contact with.
