The whole reason behind golf starting when it did (and way before other sports) was adhering to CDC/federal guidelines.  The tour and players all agreed to it.  Doesn’t matter how anyone feels.  There

How  is  he  going to infect someone  if  he  plays  by  himself? And lets  be  honest  here. 600k isnt a  legitimate  number. Died with and  of are  2 totally  different things. And again, we  have a

I’ve had two friends die from COVID in the last month. So I find your opinion disturbing. Rahm had his chance to get vaccinated and chose to delay. I have no sympathy for his WD. I’ve know quite

Had 54 hole tourney record, on pace for the 72 hole record, up by 6 strokes and loses a potential $1.67 million. Unreal. Never been a huge fan of Rahm but this really sucks.

How is someone in his position not vaccinated yet? I've been vaccinated for weeks now.

I think he's been vaxxed

Also, is there a reason he couldn't play alone?

Kind of a odd occurrence, on many levels, plus I sure hope he wasn’t vaxxed  better for us, and all I see on golf channel is the mornings test was positive so they retested the same sample, I understood they do that but why not get a second sample to test? Plus yea for a million bucks and a course record let him play alone.

Not vaxxed, no official release but reading several stories that the protocol that he was following is that of someone who has not been vaccinated.

Even if he was... if he was in close contact (which is how they’re saying he got it) you can still get it if you’re vaccinated.  They probably wouldn’t have found out though as they wouldn’t have tested him daily

Let him play alone. Make him wear a mask, too.

Don’t forget a whole bunch of vaccinated NY Yankees got covid. The strength of the vaccine is it pretty much guarantees you won’t die and you’ll be a lot less sick.

They waited for the extra test to confirm it.

Let him play alone? Sure. Maybe just give him a round if 65 and be done with it.  No need for protocols and rules to apply to him. He’s a professional sportsman. They’re much more important than plebs like us. 🤨

He was not. If he had been here wouldn’t have to get tested.

Not familiar with the USGA and PGA COVID protocol but is he in danger of missing the U.S. Open?

He’s supposed to isolate until 2 days before it begins.  Not much time to practice, but wont miss

But if he was vaxxedd, he wouldnt have been a part of this testing program that flagged him

If that's true than I kind of feel like it's on him for taking that risk.

Is it possible he was tested only because he was in close proximity to somebody who had tested positive?

Why not? To “send a message?”

What?! No. It’s a f***ing sport with rules.

That’s one of the dumbest things I’ve seen.
