Geez Sagstrom made a massive error in the Solheim Cup. Picked up her opponents ball hanging on the edge of the cup for eagle, not allowing her opponent the time to walk to the hole and see if it would drop. Probably wouldn’t but still, automatic loss of hole.

Sagstrom and her partner went on to lose the match 1 down.

Ouch.

No way that ball was going to drop, Saga was that quick she was like a soccer goalie , funny thing is Korda lay on the green sun baking for 10 minutes .

Another great finish on the PGA tour , how good is Cantlay and Rahm .

Not long now to the Ryder Cup

Good to see Herbie on to the PGA tour
I hope he does well.

Did you hear about his travel balls up the other week?

Ripper finish to the Solheim , not sure why but I always “ root” for the Euros

I reckon the women’s “ international “ team could beat either of those teams

Got the monthly newsletter from my club yesterday.

They said Golf Australia was actively working with the Victorian government to open up golf clubs again on 23 September using agreed protocols etc. Hope so.

But perhaps more interesting, the newsletter mentioned that several sandbelt courses had ALREADY mandated to all their members that they must be vaccinated in order to gain entry to the club’s grounds going forward. Wow.

My club gave the hint that it was going to do the same.

Really not sure why you are surprised by that ... at all. Seems absolutely logical and sensible.

Not surprised, and quite happy for it to happen, but given the nature of members at my club, and the typical sandbelt clubs in Melbourne, there’s gonna be a lot of them who are gonna crack it.

During past restrictions, members at my club (and I dare say others) couldn’t even comply with wearing a mask in the clubhouse, groups convening without masks etc etc and a whole lot of them bullshitting on about Covid being exaggerated and what not. You can bet London to a brick that a heap of these people won’t be vaccinated.

Members at my club complain about a 50c increase to a ham sandwich so this cohort of people will crack it, as they will at others.

Too bad. Go *** yourself I reckon. But still, the clubs are gonna be in for a tough time dealing with these dheads.

Your last sentence says it all. Maybe one of the most fascinating aspects of the whole Covid virus disaster, especially in retrospect which will produce a vast range of scientific, political and social analysis along with fiction and further opinionated commentary, is how it has defined the dividing lines in our whole country/states/local communities and group connections. Dividing lines based on a wide range of factors: political persuasion, education, age and generation, acceptance of science, social class and possibly race/ethnicity.

I can really imagine exactly the type of people you see in comfortable, middle-class golf clubs. Very entitled, privileged types often, highly conservative with entrenched old-world values many of them.

A pandemic is a bit like water: it creates its own levels in the world. And many who refuse to face realities, may cost themselves their own life/damaged health or ones close to them that they are so blase about putting at risk. Getting vaxed is now quite straightforward for almost all.

I think governments will take it out of their hands requiring either a vaccine passport or current negative rapid test (or both). No-one has the 'right' to place others in danger through their ignorance or arrogance. Otherwise, more people ill or dead, virus keeps transmitting including getting access to those still vulnerable, plus increasing chance of even more harmful variants from mutating. They have no right to ignore science or the law.

They can just confine themselves to homes even much longer or cop the penalties. Their choice.
