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.

    • Of course I know I can take more than one. And I usually do. Every now and then this seems to be a mistake I will make.  Like I said I don't really think I make too many course management decision errors. 
    • Yep, I get that. There is so much in life that needs to be prioritized over golf. Golf is still a game. Life, and the people in need to be given more priority. Sometimes I forget that. But hopefully, there will be a time in the future when you can do your 4 day golf school. Best wishes. 
    • Both. Thanks, that's interesting. I do address the ball with the driver club head on the ground. I'll check what happens when I hover it slightly. Now I'm a "low-pegger", so at impact the driver header is pretty close to the ground. I still get a few degrees upwards AoA. I try to address the ball towards the toe with driver. Just to avoid "heeliness". Could that actually have the opposite effect? My brain thinks I need to move the club "longer out"? I can also add that I'm an inside-outer, probably coming from the inside 5 degrees.
    • Really appreciate your input, I’m not going to add more than 1.5 inches as per info I’ve read and seen on some videos such as Mcgolf. It’s for my brother and the reason I’m leaning towards keeping the ping shafts is the flex suits him, I just don’t know if the butt extension is going to make the shaft stronger or not. Was hoping someone had done it before, guess I do it and see what happens. Cheers 
    • I’ve got tennis elbow so I’ve only been a few times over the last few years as hitting balls one after the other does me no favours.   I’ve got tennis elbow so I’ve only been a few times over the last few years as hitting balls one after the other does me no favours.   I usually play Wednesdays and Fridays also the odd Monday  . If I don’t play Monday I will often go and have some practice, either that or a Tuesday. I often take the Driver , 3 wood 4,5 & 6 irons out of the bag and go with the rest. Learn to hit shots with the clubs I have ,stop around the green have a few chips ,pitches putts etc.  Also I read Dave Pelz’s short game book a while back. I’ve adapted my bike and can fit a wedge on it. At night I go down to the corner of a mown area by sports fields. I take turns of which wedge, and do pitch & 2 different ‘finesse’ swings. Over summer I’ve gotten a pretty fair idea of how far I hit the various swings & it’s definitely paid dividends . I regularly get up & down from under 100 yards, especially under 40/50.  Before I just sort of guessed which club, and the other benefit is swinging slower I find I’m much more accurate with my direction.
