  1. Amen. Priority one is don't have to hit this shot a second time. Get it out of the tall grass. Sometimes you just have to take what the course allows and in this situation a shot that leaves the ball on the green or short grass is good. Close to the pin would be a miracle.
  2. I read the article. I voted yes although, as the article says, it is sort of murky with respect to the rules. But I do believe it slows up play and doubt it allows very many if any to putt better.
  3. I voted no. We are old and my Wife has some immune system issues, so I try to not take chances.
  4. You can usually search Google (whatever search engine you prefer) and find how to do this on most cars.
  5. I used the word homogeneous as a way of saying the obvious of that you cannot assume that because a person belongs to the same race as another person, that they all believe the same things or want the same things based on that one characteristic, race. The fact that not everyone wants the same thing make solving the problem of racism more complex. So with that I'll really retire this time. The subject is just to explosive and, to me at least, difficult to discuss without angering anyone. BTW: I did learn some new perspectives reading some of the previous post. So glad you started this.
  6. Here is why I said BLM is a political organization: black+lives+matter - Bing I suppose one might say it isn't political, but the description of BLM sounds political to me. I do realize there are various factions that attest to that banner, but none-the-less it exists as an organization and looks political to me. When you exist to make changes in laws, you are a political organization, by definition. Finally I'll say it is ignorant to believe that any race is homogeneous. Just because you belong to a specific race doesn't mean you are just same as everyone else belonging to that race. We are all individuals and race is only one characteristic. I don't believe I copped out, I said Black Lives Matter. What more is there to say? I can have a discussion about race although it is difficult to do without involving politics in today's world. So here is my discussion. None of us had a choice as to what race we belong to. Nor can we control what others of our race do or do not do. We can only fix ourselves. So until we get back to the concept of we are each responsible for ourselves and quit painting each other with these very broad bushes, we won't be able to fix this problem. Cher had it right when she said "if you look in the mirror and don't like what you see, you are looking at the only person on Earth that can fix it".
  7. I have read most of the posts on this thread. I will say that I believe Black Lives Matter and there clearly is a problem in the US that needs solving. Having said that I comment the Black Lives Matter is a political organization and so I don't really know how to speak to this issue without politics which is banned on this forum. So I will retire and just repeat that Black lives do matter and hopefully we as a society can come to some consensus solution in country.
  8. Things are looking up it seems, at least as far as the Pandemic goes.
  9. I believe I enjoyed this telecast as much or more than most PGA tournaments. It was certainly entertaining, too bad the weather was not good. I particularly like the modified alternate shot format on the back 9.
  10. I am certainly in favor of opening up. However I have some suspicion that people will remain cautious and handshakes might not be the thing right away. Wouldn't be surprised to still see some with masks and gloves in newly opened businesses.
  11. If you're serious better hurry. It is likely to get to 100 degrees this weekend.
  12. Well we do need to begin opening up and I hope the best for those that are the first to report for work. But the fact is that until there is a vaccine, we won't stop the virus cold. Also worth remembering is the quarantine was intended to slow the infection rate so we didn't overwhelm the Health Care systems. It was never intended to be a solution to anything other than that. It would appear it has done a good job of slowing the infection rate. But we cannot stay quarantined until a vaccine is available. That's estimated to be a year or more. We now seem to have a few treatments that are working and saving some lives so maybe this is a good time to start testing the waters and see what happens. I don't say this lightly as I am in that old people group that seems to be more at risk of death or permanent disability if I contract the virus. But I'm an American too, and we cannot destroy the economy in the process of trying to avoid infection. I don't want my posterity growing up in a third world country.
  13. Well I am thankful to be living in AZ right now. Our Governor seems to understand that some non essential activities are necessary (is that contradictory?) to the well being of the population. I have my differences with our Governor at times, but have to say he has done a good job with the shutdown. Situation here is some courses have shut down voluntary rather than adopt the modified rules, but most are open for play, both public and private.
