  1. Depends on the state, but Governors generally have a wide scope of authority to deal with health and safety in the state. This includes things like quarantining, and making it a crime to break quarantine. A Governor's order to mask can be enforced with criminal penalties. At the federal level, there are thousands of criminal offenses that are not laws passed by Congress.
  2. One thing that's an unknown right now is how many people have longer-term complications from COVID. There are more and more stories about this, a lot of which are pretty scary. I asked my doctor this week if we know how prevalent these long-term complication are, and she said we really have no idea right now. This article says it may be 1 in 10 or 1 in 20. When Covid symptoms last 'for weeks and months' Thousands of people with Covid-19 report recurring symptoms for far longer than 14 days. And some of these complications are pretty bad: Warning of serious brain disorders in people with mild coronavirus symptoms | Coronavirus outbreak | The Guardian UK neurologists publish details of mildly affected or recovering patients with serious or potentially fatal brain conditions If you look up the long-term complications of people who were infected with and survived the original SARS, it doesn't paint a pretty picture. If COVID is like that, the repercussions on society are going to last a long time.
  3. Great example of feel ain't real. I have similar experiences. I try a feel that seems really weird and film it. Looks nearly the same.
  4. I suggest the post-round kiss instead of the post-round handshake:
  5. Figured I would start this thread, given there's some relevant news today. No spectators are going to be allowed at the tournament: PGA TOUR, the Memorial Tournament presented by Nationwide announce next week's event to be held without spectators The PGA TOUR and the Memorial Tournament presented by Nationwide announced today that despite a robust health and safety plan and State of Ohio approval for limited patron attendance, the world-renowned event... The article says the decision was made by the Tour and the tournament itself.
  6. What a baby. Nobody cares if you cuss or get angry about a shot. Don't damage the course, and it's not a deal. It's got to be close to impossible to keep your cool all the time as a professional golfer. Everybody has bad days. The problem is that Bryson does destroy the course sometimes. Yeah, that hurts your brand. It's not the cameraman's fault. Also, I bet the producer or someone else is telling the cameraman what to shoot. Good chance it's not the cameraman's call. Again, what a baby.
  7. I would get there in 3 maybe a quarter of the time. I average 270 off the tee with driver, so I would need an above average driver and at least one really good 3 wood. A lot of you guys are fooling yourselves if you think you would get there in 3. A 300 yard drive still leaves a 473 yard hole, which is a 3 shot par 5 for the vast majority of golfers. The altitude difference isn't as much as you think it is: Golf Ball Aerodynamics: The Effect of Altitude | Titleist - Team Titleist If you've ever played golf on higher altitude courses like ones in Denver, Jackson Hole or Reno, you probably noticed that you were seeing some added distance to your game. ... Add 6% to your current distance, and you'll have a rough estimate. For reference, the median PGA Tour player drives the ball 295 yards, which would be 313 yards at this course, with the 6% addition.
  8. I guess it shouldn't be surprising, but these guys really have no clue about aerodynamics/physics. If you get it in the air, it's not just going to keep going. The dimples are what keeps the ball in the air.
  9. 😆😆😆 Okay, Mr. Mickelson.
  10. Oh brother, we're still having this debate? The best case, COVID-19 is 4x as deadly as the flu. Worst case, it's 10-11x as deadly as the flu. It's already killed nearly .3% of the population of New York City, with somewhere between 20-25% infected. In 6 months.
  11. Another thing that sucks about this is that Fox essentially had all-day coverage of the US Open, between FS1 and Fox itself. I'd imagine NBC is not going to keep that, unfortunately.
  12. Hopefully that continues to be the case, then. I’m worried about it though, because hospitalizations and deaths have tended to lag a few weeks behind cases. So hopefully in 2-3 weeks, we can say that serious cases are not as frequent as they have been.
  13. Unfortunately, nationwide that’s not true. We set a new record number of cases today, and our positive test rate is up 2 percentage points in a weeks. The increase is case is not just because we’re testing more. This isn’t true in Florida, either:
  14. A valid point, but the ideal set up for the PGA Tour to have a true bubble would go way beyond just on site safety protocols. For example, having the players take the same flight, stay in the same hotel, or regulate activities off the course. You're right, though, they could easily make more of an effort to enforce the guidelines on the course. It's also likely that the cases are from off the course activity.
