Here's what I'd like to ask everyone. No commentary, really, just a question:
What has changed (weather independent, etc.) from February until today?
Here in Erie, PA and off the top of my head:
Much more golf being played.
Masks inside anything, and sometimes even outside.
Restaurants are still pushing outdoor seating and limited indoors (which doesn't feel totally weird, but does a little).
Some reduced hospitalization and/or procedures. Chiropractors, for example, are seeing fewer patients (great for me as I can get in whenever!)
LOTS more golf being played, particularly by juniors who don't have as many things to do.
Kids are still doing stupid things. Almost nothing has changed there.
All the changes to education. My wife is a teacher and she's going to have like 75% more work this year — and she was NOT one of the lazy teachers. She put in a lot of time, which is actually why she'll have so much more work to do this year. It's the actually lazy teachers or those who teach the "non-essential" courses that get another several months (at a minimum) of easy work.
Retail is down. The Millcreek Mall is a ghost town. Other places like Lowe's and Home Depot seem almost unaffected.
Friends and others are still working from home… which honestly makes sense if it becomes permanent. I've been a big fan of working from home since I got out of college.
Pro sports are "back". No fans but they're playing. High school sports are not. Many college sports are not.
I've run out of my self-allotted time, so that's all I've got. What has changed for you?
When you have to hit 7 iron or longer into all of the greens but your opponents are hitting flip wedges, full wedges, or knockdown short irons, you are bound to be streaky in results.
Exactly. There always has to be the short hitters based on the bell curve. The fact that he can still contend is impressive.
I'd also strongly advise getting your camera angles totally correct. It's possible the camera angle is making the inside takeaway look even worse than it is. I'm sure you've seen this before but just to reiterate I'll link it again.
