 Bad news for sports fans everywhere. The main thing though is to try and keep everyone safe and healthy if possible, many events cancelled or being held in closed stadiums here in Aus also. Best wishes to everyone and their families, we can only hope that this passes quicker than is currently expected.

Few more pics from today.

I’ll be in attendance during Thursday and Saturday rounds! I live just 3 miles North of the course. Weather forecast is PERFECT!!

My wife's grandmother was 10 years old during the global flu pandemic of 1919.  She would often talk about it, how she took care of her younger brothers and sister and parents when they got sick.  Two

It’s sad, but the right thing to do. There will be many more deaths than the flu, but the economic damage won’t be as bad or long lasting as 2008-09. Kids and healthy adults will be OK, unhealthy folks especially elderly will be most at risk. We just have to be smart for a while. And I suspect we’ll see all the majors this year eventually.

I guess it’s selfish,  but I don’t think this will reduce the amount of golf I play at all...

during any disastrous times, you see this.....9/11, Hurricane Sandy...ect.....this is nothing new. People just forget which is why individuals still rush to the store and fistfight over toilet paper. 

Here’s the toilet paper isle at Walmart today. Not a roll to be found.IMG_0747.PNG

Funny I almost took a picture of our paper goods aisle at Walmart today but it would have been a picture of an empty aisle. Hoarding paper towels and toilet paper . Lots of stuff gone in the frozen food aisles as well. I don't get it.

We don’t get it either. Some food isles were empty.

I understand imported items being in short supply. Especially items coming from China. But most toilet paper is made in paper plants in the US. I don’t understand.

Maybe the same people who eat so many milk sandwiches when it snows?

I was at Walmart and Sam's Club yesterday...lots of big empty..especially the toilet paper isle and paper towel isle. Personally I use baby wipes instead of TP. A doctor recommended that 2 years ago after a hemorrhoid flare-up. Never went back to dry TP.

Anyways, I understand the need for all the precautions the various Sports leagues are taking but I guess I thought with golf, just have no fans but the golfer and caddie still could play (2-3 per hole) and it could be broadcast on TV.  Throw in a few rules officials and really that's all you need to play a tournament. However, as my Ex-wife used to say, I'm not the tastiest cookie in the box so I probably don't really know what I'm rambling on about.

I played Monday (Damn nice weather for NW PA) and plan on playing a lot once it gets nicer.

I've pretty much scrolled and peeked at most comments. This virus thing is so overblown. It is! There's one thing that nobody talks about. Perspective. As in... let's put this in perspective. The facts are out there if anyone cares to inform themselves and use their head. Our national media is a joke run by a bunch of fools and tools.

Don't we have a FLU season each year in this country? And 10's of thousands die. Fact. Why don't we panic each year? We don't. It's accepted that thousands of people will die from the "flu". Even some that have had a vaccination will die. So how does the national news media handle this each year? Meh. No news really. Just a 3 second blurb that Flu season is a real bummer this year so be careful out there. Then they turn their attention to the latest iPhone release. Or something else that's really important. Like the latest hollywood celeb yapping about more nonsense or some idiot politician telling us how smart they are. (and you're not)

My unprofessional advice? Use your head. Look at the facts. (not found on TV) Put all this scare (overblown and media induced panic) into prospective. Think! If you are old and unhealthy already be very careful of any flu. Hell, a common cold can potentially kill you if left untreated. 

And don't even get me started on the toilet paper thing. Good grief!!!!

Yesterday I read and article by a doctor and two sentences from it stood out.  He said that hopefully when all this is said and done, we will look back and wonder why took all these steps because it turned out to not be that big of a deal.  The irony, he points out, is that it will hopefully not be a big deal because of all we took all these steps.

Agree with PlaidJacket. What we have here is a media induced panic for political reasons. This isn't my first rodeo either. Am 74 years young and  have been through much worse than this to include two tours in Vietnam flying choppers. Country is behaving like a bunch of wimps. Yea, you take the proper precautions but you keep a stiff upper lip and drive on. Makes me sick to my stomach to see my country react this way. To cancel these golf tournaments and other sporting events because of political correctness is a disgrace.
