    Look up what the data says about mortality rate among healthy people aged 18-60 though...

    Your theoretical quote is basically impossible among PGA Tour players and caddies.

    This is crazy, but still understandable at the same time.

    No one knows what this virus will exactly bring, and the death rate percentage keeps increasing.

    Lots of panic and chaos while all CEO's try to save their collective as$es from law suits for being the ones to stay open when everyone else closes. It's the flu, people will die from it, but certainly not worthy of shutting down the world for a month.

    I know the feeling, every time I go -9 out of tournament. Stopped playing casual rounds, it was killing me, the what-ifs.

    Played yesterday, will play tomorrow and weekend. Seems like golf is one of the safer sports given it's open air and plenty of space to maintain social distancing.

    Well said - better safe than sorry is a cliché, but in this case is very true.

    I have a great monty python reference for this but it seems off color and may be considered offensive. It involves a town crier and a cart. If any one does take offense please remember that laughter is supposedly the best medicine.

    What did McIlroy say? Today's overreaction is tomorrow's under reaction. You may not worry for yourself (being healthy) but what if you contract this and you have family who are more susceptible to the virus That's an avoidable tragedy

    Nice try at asking you to explain your extremely cryptic comment? Ah. I see. You're one of those guys.

    Hope the golf Channel can run some of the classic rounds of golf rather than the same old golf movies.

    Go where ? That’s the point. I didn’t say anything except ... think. Which you did.

    Yeah but you didn't explain how having just players, caddies, rules officials, camera people, etc. on a giant golf course in the sun increases that risk.

    If playing a pro golf tournament consisted of going into a room and hugging each other, then I agree it should be cancelled.

    As is, they'll be doing more dangerous things just by passing each other in the pro shop or going to the grocery store.

    Seems more like the tournament was cancelled for liability/political/money reasons than actual danger.

    All celebs are somehow getting tested, Barkley and others. Not sure what the channels are but they sure aren't being turned away.

    Why? Its actually a chance for some adults in the room to inject some sanity into a country that currently has very little of it.

    Its embarrassing watching the meltdown in this country right now. Downright embarrassing
