    COVID-19

    I'm very fortunate to be in a position to work from anywhere with solid internet access. I feel for everyone going through a similar situation as you. I couldn't imagine the agony of the unknown with no clear direction as to what's going to happen or where we're headed. None of us have ever experienced anything quite like this before. Makes me even more appreciative of the sacrifices the greatest generation made look so easy! Be well!
  2. Is it just me or does it feel like it's been a couple months without live sports?
  3. My family and I spent most of Friday and Saturday trimming hedges, pruning trees and cleaning out the garage. I spent most of yesterday watching the men's and women's 2014 US Opens at Pinehurst. I watched both live six years ago but wasn't able to appreciate the dichotomy given the week of separation between the two events. I didn't exactly do a "deep dive" yesterday but tried to pay close attention to how the golf course played for the men and women. From the "members" tees, Michelle Wie had a tremendous advantage on the field. She was hitting hybrids off the tee to spots other players weren't reaching with driver. I would love to see Martin Kaymer's strokes gained putting stats for that week. He was absolutely dominant from tee to green but he was out of this world on the greens! I would love to see the USGA play the men's and women's Open's like this more often!
  4. I have a new observation to add to the list after the weekend. Does anyone know this "Marshall Law" fellow everyone is clamoring to take over leadership of this crisis? He sounds like the sheriff of some spaghetti western when I was a kid. Seriously, if you're on social media clamoring for Martial Law and don't understand the difference between "Marshall" and "Martial", delete your accounts, go back to your moms basement and leave the hard stuff to the grown-ups!
  5. Just a few observations from my families adventures of the past 10 days. My kids have figured out they can do school work on Google Classroom in a fraction of the time they spend in a classroom. My kids have learned that going to school everyday means spending time with friends. Being quarantined means not seeing friends at all. Clients have figured out conference calls are the way to justify their existence. Clients have miraculously learned how to reply all........incessantly! Clients have decided they need every ounce of potential workload in case they are sent home. Thus reducing timetables on deliverables from me. I have lost what little faith/respect/trust in media I ever had. My wife and I have figured out we made terrible career choices! If my emergency nines weren't a priority before this mess, they have become a lifesaver. If not, I may be in a padded white room right now!
  6. I haven't carried in over a decade and love my pushcart. Living in the middle of the Appalachian Mountains, we have some elevation change. The front is pancake flat for the first 6 holes. The elevation change on 7-9 are minimal and easily to navigate without much effort. The difficulty starts when you head toward #10. It's 70 feet uphill from the 9th green to the 10th tee and another 90 feet from the 10th tee to the 10th green. It's manageable again for the next few holes as you play back down the slope. Then the next few holes are a bear.
  7. With the exception of yesterday, I have walked at least 9-holes every afternoon since last Wednesday. Couldn't manage the cold rain yesterday. I am getting ready to head out to play shortly. The course has been wide open for he most part. Mostly kids getting in their gym requirements since schools have been closed. It's nice to see more people walking the golf course. It's the only way I want to play the game but I'm in the minority. Maybe we come out the other side of this ordeal with new perspective in a lot of areas!

    COVID-19

    A local pub down the street from my office ignored state mandates on bars and restaurants and had a massive St. Patrick's Day bash last night. State officials have revoked their liquor license and city officials have revoked their business license. Play stupid games, win stupid prizes!!!!!
  9. Sports talk radio hosts around the country breath a sigh of relief. They have something to talk about for a month now!
  10. The best thing I have found is this.....https://www.mission.com/products/enduracool-bucket-hat?variant=17464997125 Works like a charm for me. I have two in my locker at my home club and another at home for yard work.
  11. Just saw Universal Pictures will be releasing all of their "in-theater" movies to Amazon for streaming on Friday and will continue to do so with previously scheduled releases until this whole mess is over. Very smart move that will likely be duplicated by everyone else.

    COVID-19

    Admittedly, I didn't consider human impact on others, especially the elderly or those with compromised immune systems, when taking the stance that this is being grossly overblown. I still believe the mass hysteria to be overblown but fully understand, certain precautions need to be made to lessen the spread and impact on our healthcare system and protect the vulnerable among us. To put it simply, we have to "flatten the curve!" With that said, my neighbor decided to host a "doomsday" party that lasted from early Saturday afternoon through the late-night hours last night. We counted between 60 and 70 people at this party, not that my family attended. I cannot stand my neighbor and remind him often (when he gets out of line) of his impact on our small community. For a little backstory on my clueless neighbor. In 1972, he was drag-racing his friend, drunk on a residential street. The friend hit and killed an 11-year old boy named WK Dees. The friend was convicted of involuntary manslaughter and driving under the influence. He was sentenced to 3 years in prison but released on probation without serving a single day. My neighbor walked away scot-free. Fast forward to 1988, while drag-racing again on a residential street, my neighbor hit and killed an 11 year old boy named Sammy Brown who was riding his bicycle in his neighborhood while drag-racing the same guy mentioned above. Sammy was my Little League baseball teammate that summer. My neighbor served less than 2 years of a 5 year prison sentence and has been out ever since. He continues to drink heavily, drive often and lacks basic human decency. The house he currently owns is in the same subdivision as the sister of his first victim! Needless to say, this asshat has terrible judgement! https://scholar.lib.vt.edu/VA-news/ROA-Times/issues/1993/rt0393/930329/03290018.htm https://www.dailypress.com/news/dp-xpm-19890331-1989-03-31-8903310081-story.html Rant over! Thanks for listening.
