  1. After calling my post bullshit and editing out from where you quoted me the whole point of my post where I said check what Fauci says, check the CDC.. Then you post the exact same article I did. You're just trying to find fault. And Vinsk has claimed he is an expert, and he could be, probably is, but there is a lot of deception on internet forums. Regardless, it doesn't matter I don't need to vet Vinsk, one can just go to his sources, the CDC and Fauci. That's the point.
  2. I'm not going to listen to the self proclaimed experts on a golf site, not when there's so much published directly from Fauci and the CDC. CDC, quarantine if you might be sick... Coronavirus Disease 2019 (COVID-19) Coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) is a virus (more specifically, a coronavirus) identified as the cause of an outbreak of respiratory illness first detected in Wuhan, China.
  3. Regarding the news saying that it's taking up to 8 days for some people to get their tests results back, my thought was the daily numbers can't go higher than the overall throughput of the testing. If that's the case the increase or decreases will be due to % tested positive numbers. Conspiracy theories? No point in arguing with crazy.
  4. And, they got zero camera coverage.
  5. I didn't say that. Don't imply I said something that I didn't. Another study: https://www.thelancet.com/journals/lancet/article/PIIS0140-6736(20)31142-9/fulltext
  6. Pretty easy to find studies that support that and contradict that. We can all cherry pick to support our personal narrative. I'm not going to be critical of someone wearing a mask as prescribed by the CDC, and yes on the tee box and elsewhere on the course people get closer than 6 feet even if it's an unintentional lapse of awareness. Is 6 feet of social distancing really enough? By now, Americans are familiar with the rule: Stay six feet away from other people for your best chance of preventing the spread of COVID-19.
  7. 12th at Torrey South is considered one of the hardest holes in San Diego. Par 4 504 yards from the back tees, two tee boxes up where I play it is 443 yards. Straight into a prevailing breeze which is usually about 10 mph but sometime worse or even much worse. The wind is consistent enough as this hole points right at the hang glider port where they glide off the nearby cliff usually 7 days a week. I've never reached the green in two, it plays as a par 5. The green is elevated, repeals pretty good shots, deep bunkers. Pretty easy strategically to figure out. Hit driver, then hit your longest fairway wood, then for me sand wedge or lob wedge if the wind isn't too bad. Lat week I stuck a lob wedge 8 feet from the hole, made the putt, and got par, felt like a birdie
  8. I've only been playing Torrey Pines since the courses have reopened in California. It seems just a little more difficult to get times. Times become available online 7 days in advance at 7 pm exactly. All but twilight times are gone for both courses in about 5 seconds or less. Only difference now is it's become harder to even get a twilight time except for the pay 18 hole rate but only have enough daylight to play 9 times, 5:15 pm and after. I like to grab a twilight time and play 12 on the North which does come back near the clubhouse. I grab a 4 pm within 1 second after they're released and have always had success. The nice thing about this situation is you have to invest very little time or effort in the process. No shows are not a problem at Torrey. You do that three times and you lose your reservation privileges. In addition there is always a waiting list of walk ons. The course seems to always be filled. Pace of play can be a problem.
  9. I've recently been verbally assaulted by a black man, I was flabbergasted as I had no interaction with him other than to walk into a parking lot about 100 feet from him. Perhaps it was simple because I'm white. When I was 17 (I'm now 62) I was hit with in the side of my head when I was walking by two black men (the Dr. thought it was probably a steel pipe).. No interaction again and no eye contact. Left on the ground, unconscious, with a concussion, and a broken bone on the side of my face. Nothing was stolen, just a random act of violence. Just the fact that I mention that those two incidents were done by a black man makes me racist to a degree. Right? Is there any relevance in my story that they were black, I think so. I believe my racism comes from fear and experience though it's not overt. It is probably rational. I call out others that make racist comments. My racism is on a subconscious level.
  10. +1 I've been thinking the same. "I'm not racist", is usually said by someone who just made a racist comment.
  11. See my post above. It's about managing foot traffic and not having everyone funneled down the same path. It's not the cart wheels it's all the footsteps circling the green with the push carts. Without the hand carts players don't circle the edge of the green.
  12. Torrey allows them and play seemed to speed up during a period when riding carts were not allowed. Torrey South in particular with elevated greens and a lot of green side bunkers, I can see the 2 - 3 foot area off and around the edge of the greens getting extra wear from all the push/pull cart trafic. With a push cart and the course setup all the walkers with push carts are funneled into these small pathways as they keep the carts off the green and avoid slowing play down by making trips back to their carts if they leave them back at the fairway. It's pretty much okay as the Kikuyu grass is so tough, otherwise it would be a problem. They should just allow and encourage players to just walk the carts right onto the green.
  13. Day 15 Putting Bead Work These are good drills for me... I'm pretty bad at this.
  14. I'm in the above 60 and I am immune compromised. I agree, leaving the economy shut down may cause more harm than the coronavirus. The balance is in not overwhelming the hospitals. Meanwhile, I'll be stuck at home either way.
