    Considering everything going on and we are dealing with, I think 2,500 would be an amazing win for the WA

    2222 😳. Odds of winning something (door prize, flight, etc) hopefully improve.

    Tommy, I think 2500 is stretching it big time me I believe we will be really lucky to see 2300 but all in all I think the W/A was glad to see it hit 2000…people are just afraid to go out of town right now..And when you talking about going to a hot spot too…Every year I’ve been playing in this event my girl friend has came with me this year she said she was going to pass she just didn’t feel like setting in the room while I was on the golf course and she really didn’t want to go to any of the malls we had already talked about not going to any shows this year so she said hell I can set in the house at home..And a lot people I’m sure if the wife or girl friend is not going they too will probably cancel this years trip…lol

    Mike I personally feel your chances of contracting the virus are just as good at home or in some cases worse. I am playing golf regularly and I do not plan to live my life in a bubble, I wear a mask when I go out in public and I sanitize my hands after any contact outside of our home. I respect those people who feel threatened by any public activity but even if you contract it the hospitalization rate is 4.6 per 100,000 positive tests. So even if you get it you have a very good chance you might not even know you have it. The odds of making a hole in one are 12,500 to 1, the odds of requiring a hospital visit from the Covid virus are 20,000 to 1, so you have a far better chance of getting multiple hole in ones than you do contracting the virus and becoming seriously sick.

    Hey Tommy,
    I agree we always come with a group of people from here where I live and we all hang out at nights but several are not coming this year another reason my girl friend decided not to come because the gal’s also do some things while we are all on the course…But hey on a better note I had a hole in one ( 1 ) last year at the W/A on Wed. at crown park number 13, then I had another one on March 06, this year…Let the Ace’s keep coming I’ve only had 4…
    I see you were in flight 28 last year I was in 26 so what is your handicap for this year I’m sure I’ll still be in the first flight of our age group again…

    Mike whatever flight a 7.4 puts me. My handicap keeps going up with my age and surgeries.Ah to be young again. I retired and spend most of my time taking care of our property, I had my day playing golf, I still enjoy playing but just don’t have the desire or time to play at a high level again.

    Tommy, your statistics on hospitalization rates per positive test is way wrong !! Based on what you said if 350 million were all tested and tested positive ( that is everyone in the U.S), than only 16,100 would be put in the hospital. Take a look at what’s happening.

    Paul you are correct, I used deaths, the hospitalization number is 113.6 per 100,000

    Ages 65 years and older (321.8 per 100,000)

    Ages 50-64 years (171.8 per 100,000)

    Wondering how close it will get to the year I was born, 1954?

    This golfer has 29 days and a wake up until the ky blue vet heads east on 40. Can’t wait to smell the ocean salt in the air. Hope everyone is getting excited and preparing their game if not bring your drinking game.
