  1. Interesting. I have to admit that I’ve never seen that approach before. I think I’d rather yank the bandaid off quickly though. Do it all at once and pretty much be back to normal 2-3 weeks, rather than deal with 4-6 weeks of the half measure.
  2. Put me in the “Meh” category. They’re a private club and can/should do what they consider to be best for their club.
  3. We’re fortunate to have 2 courses. The first was done 3 weeks ago, on Monday and Tuesday. Play resumed on Thursday, though most members opted to play the other course for the first week after. This week, today and tomorrow, the other course is being blown up with play starting again on Thursday, but roles have reversed and most will play the first course for the next week or so. We’re pretty much back to normal in 5 weeks, start to finish for both courses, but no course is completely shut down for more than 2 days...
  4. Welcome to the site! Where are you? The process is a bit different here in the states, but let’s see if we can’t find somebody who knows your area a bit...
  5. Not via the Internet, but yes, even real time prop bets have been around forever. I was making them, sitting in the Caesar’s sports book 40 years ago... Regardless though, my answer to the OP remains the same. I don’t see tour pros ever “throwing a golf tournament”. And, as you already mentioned, doing so is illegal anyway.
  6. You’ve been able to bet on virtually every aspect of a PGA tour event for as long as I can remember. Granted, the Internet has made it a bit easier and more visible, but make no mistake it’s always been available. Just walk into any sports book in any casino… So no. DraftKings, the latest form of the same old thing, isn’t going to change anything. It’s certainly not going to cause a tour pro to take a dive.
  7. Sigh. My point is that gambling is, and always has been, part of the very fabric of the game. There’s nothing new here under the sun that should cause any more concern than there ever was.
  8. I am sure that they gambled during the very first round of golf ever. I’m good with that…
  9. If you have room in the bag, why not carry it? I might exchange it for a 60° though. Better to have and not need, than to need and not have, even if it’s only once in a blue moon.
  10. I could have written this word for word... A buddy gets his gloves at Costco for something like 4 for $25. They’re not Footjoys, but for 6 bucks a glove, they’re pretty damn good. Unless it’s priced under $5, I can’t imagine too many people are going to go out of their way to change from whatever it is that they use now. I learned a lesson about subscription services way back in the Columbia House music days that I haven’t forgotten too...
  11. I’m neither. The fact that you disagree with me doesn’t make it untrue. The fact that you want someone who disagrees with you to stop posting is disappointing, but I guess not surprising. So I’ll do so.
  12. Not an infringement on rights. Just silly, not very effective in preventing the spread of the virus, and potentially doing more long term harm than good to the kids. Wear a mask. Get a vaccine. Social distance by at least 6’ from anyone you don’t know and you and yours will be safe. Right?
  13. So don’t associate with people who have moved around the country if doing so makes you feel unsafe. As for feeling responsible vice virtuous. Tomato / Tomauto If you’re doing it for me, you needn’t bother. I won’t hold it against you, I promise 😊
