This crap is going around again. My son had it two weeks ago. He said no big deal. Slight headache, aches and pains, sore throat and a stuffy nose.  The worst part was only 1 day and he slept through most of it. Cold medicine was all he took and was fine in 5 days. 

Fresh air helps, stay as active as you can. Small walks outside. Your energy level will be the last to get back to normal, but keeping yourself moving will help. I hope you get over it quickly.

We will see you out on the course soon. 

Thanks Tom! I've been moving around in the room today, working on a couple of things in my swing. I'm glad your son got over it quickly and only had one bad day.

I think the fever is starting to come in, I'm chilly right now. I'm about to take some cold meds and hopefully work on keeping the symptoms at bay.

I was so excited to get my new irons in today, Srixon was wicked fast with my custom order and got them here in less than a week! But, they showed up so wrong that they're not even usable for me. Now I'm hearing that my shaft, which we called and verified was available before placing the order, may be backordered for a few months... Ugh. It's my first time doing business with Srixon and the first impression isn't great. I understand everyone makes mistakes though, just hoping they're able to make it right somehow instead of me waiting months.

Did you read about @fixyurdivot's issue with his Srixon iron build?

No, I didn't see it. Is it in this thread somewhere? I'd be interested in reading up on it. If I'm being honest there were more issues than just the shafts but I noticed them right away and hadn't even unpacked the clubs. When I did, I noticed the shafts were covered in filth, they forgot to adjust the loft on three of the clubs, there was a small dent/ding (like bag chatter causes) on one of the irons, and they were packaged so poorly that I'm surprised they made it safely. With Mizuno I'm used to the foam pieces that the heads fit into and then something holding the shafts and grips in place too. This was just irons thrown into a box with something a little thicker than newspaper on each end of the box. I probably wouldn't even care if the order was right but now I'm nitpicking, haha.

I don't think he experienced the same problems you have.  Sorry to here that.

I'm not sure where Bill posted about it.  I think it had to do with the swing weights being off.  Had to send them back to the builder, but he loves them now.  Might send him a PM for details.

Being in the golf industry and working closely with different manufacturers over the years I've always felt like I've been given better than normal treatment. Way below retail pricing, faster orders, etc. I think that's why today was so surprising. Just got word that they're fixing the issues and I should have them in hand in a few days. Here's to hoping they get it right this time around.

I'm starting to feel better after a couple of  days dealing with Covid. My fever is gone, not as congested, and I'm finally able to breathe out of both nostrils. Right now the only bad things are, I can't taste anything and I think I'm dealing with Nyquil hangover cause I'm a little off balance when I stand up sometimes. 

The bad thing is, the whole house is dealing with it and they're a day behind on symptoms from where I'm at. My wife is pretty beat right now and is trying to get some rest.

I'm about to go stir crazy and considering getting in some time with nature and a little white ball tomorrow. Sorry, @Yellow Ball DSG doesn't sell the four packs of MaxFli Tour in your color. 

Feel better man.  I hope your wife starts feeling better too!

 

As a side note, when I had it (super mild) the only real symptom was lack of taste (as opposed to my normal lack of taste).  It lasted a while and it took like... 3 months before I could taste coffee again.  So weird.

Thanks Bryan! I really hope the taste comes back soon, my wife is a really good cook and I just hate the thought of everything being bland.

I’ve heard of everything from a couple weeks without taste to a guy at work who still says he can’t taste anything after 18 months. 😳 The vast majority of people that I’ve heard talk about it were a few weeks. Hope you get your taste back soon.

Ugh, Srixon is killing me. They emailed to say they ran out of my grips, putting the last ones they had on my other irons. I've played the same grip my entire life and anything else feels foreign. Whatever, I'll take something different and deal with it. (Tour Velvet Full Cord are impossible to find right now). My other clubs could all use new grips so I went ahead and ordered more Z Grip Cords to match the new irons. After that I get an email saying they found more of my grip so they are putting them on! Good news, I'll cancel my order for the new grips. Then comes another email that they forgot to add the special instructions (logo down, two extra wraps under the bottom hand) to the work order so they were installed standard. The logo down isn't a big deal but grips feel tiny when tapered and I need those two extra wraps. So now they're removing the grips I want, hopefully without damage, and putting them on correctly. A higher up is now involved and is holding their hand throughout the process so I'm hoping they show up correct. The person I order through says Srixon is usually their best when it comes to order accuracy, guess they hired some new people and are working out the kinks. Hopefully the performance is so good I forget about the troubles I had getting them, haha.

My mother-in-law passed away today. While we're thankful for the time we had with her this last year after her battle with MRSA, her heart problems, and Covid, we just wish we had more. My wife and sister-in-law are  both lost and grieving right now because there's not many greater pains than losing mom.

She was one of the toughest people I've ever know, she's dealt with severe health problems in the entire 15 years I've know her. She was also very kind and thoughtful and I'm thankful that she accepted me into her family and trusted me to care for her daughter. I'll miss her. 

So sorry to hear about the loss to your family. Never an easy thing to deal with, sounds like she was a great woman.

Condolences to the family. Not easy, didn’t realize she was struggling that badly. Hope the family can grieve and in time remember all the good times.

Sorry for your family’s loss.  It’s not easy to lose a parent especially as close as you & wife were.
