  1. That topic is for discussing golf in this time, this topic is for discussing COVID-19 itself.
  2. I've got an idea, and I'd like buy-in from a good number of people here. I'd like people to commit to doing this every day in April. Since we're all stuck inside (not all, and not literally inside 24/7, but you get the drift), I thought we could use this time to go through a 30-day practice plan. Specifically, my idea is this: Every day I'll produce a video showing you something to practice for five minutes. I'll post the video in the morning. I'd like everyone to practice that for five minutes, in your home, that day. I'd like everyone to post that they did it, a
  3. Seems like times like these brings out the best and worst of people. The media loves to show the guy with 50 rolls of TP in his cart and even here things have gotten a little tense from time to time, I am a guilty party to that myself. So I will start with something positive from the Covid-19 pandemic. I usually play in the late afternoons at my course and I rarely say two words to anyone because everyone there at that time is in a rush to get in their game before dark. Now though it seems people stop and talk, from a distance of course, and I have met several people and wound up playing with
  4. I've heard this question on a few radio shows, so I will ask it here. Where is the first place you are going to go have a dine-in meal when this is all over and restaurant dining rooms are open again? For me, there is a little roadside joint called the 571 Grill with awesome smoked wings that are flash fried right before they're served. The have a great selection of micro-brews. That's where I'm headed.
  5. Just for fun, if the COVID-19 pandemic had a theme song, what should it be? If possible, post a YouTube video link. And GO! Stand Back - Stevie Nicks
  6. Heard from someone who would know: four Korn Ferry Tour people* tested positive for COVID-19 and are out at this week's event. * The asterisk is because I don't know if it was players or caddies. I'm also not seeing news of this anywhere online, so I'm hiding the topic for now.
  7. An interesting topic to think about with some courses having moved to walking only. Will players that are being forced to walk now (if they even play) continue the trend once things return to normalcy, because they find that they like it more? Will golf courses end up raising fees if they see revenue fallout if there are less carts being rented? Discuss if you like, I'll chime in my thoughts after a few replies. Edit* This is geared toward American golf trends. I know that most of the world already walks almost all of the time.
  8. I think it could have been, for two reasons: It may have weeded out some of the failing courses. This can be healthy for a market as a lot of these perpetually-near-failing courses will do some last-ditch efforts to undercut competition, providing poor golf experiences at a cheap rate. It may have driven up interest in the game overall, as one of the "relatively safe, healthy ways to get outside, exercise, socially distance but still socialize in person, and compete" types of ways. See the link and quote below (red). Golf course operators have had to get creative. They've may
  9. No grandstands, spectator tracking among safety protocols at Memorial Memorial Tournament director Dan Sullivan outlined various new social distancing protocols for fans as they plan to host spectators on-site in July. Here's the part I'm not sure I like at all: There are easier and less personally identifying ways to see how many people are "collecting in a certain area." Especially when you have a few hundred staff and volunteers, cameras, a blimp, etc.
  10. My first round of post lockdown golf was scheduled for 7:00am on Tuesday, April 28, 2020. In the Mitten we are currently limited to walking only. I was planning on going solo since my two regular golf buddies had bailed. One friend has a bad back and can’t walk a course. The other has decided to skip golf until the “virus thing” has worked itself out. As instructed, I used the online system to book my solo round. I was lucky and got the first scheduled tee time of the day. The course was limiting groups to three or less and tee times had 12-minute splits. When I scheduled my time,
  11. Earlier yesterday I received a letter that mandated I close TST due to its status as a "non-essential" business. As many others know, Governor Tom Wolf of PA has closed golf courses state-wide, and now is closing all golf-related activity, despite courses in OH, NY, and WV remaining open so long as they follow the proper guidelines. At midnight tonight, I'm shutting TST down in order to comply with the order from Governor Wolf. This is a sad day, and I can only hope that we will be able to re-open TST at some point in June or July or whenever we finally get the all-clear. In the
