Wow, the original post was about Jon Rahm I thought. Response after response from online experts about this that and the other thing. Regardless of your personal position on vaccines, masks, science and politics it was very hard to see him told on live tv about his positive test. A little compassion and understanding would be good.

He had not been vaccinated which is why they were testing him every day. No sympathy for him. He should have gotten vaccinated.

It is totally asinine that they are testing them at all. Are they testing all the fans that come to the tournaments?

Agree, they could have told him in private.

The whole mask, vaccination, distancing situation is out of control in many respects.
I could never understand tv commentators out in the open air, wearing a mask, when no other person was near.
Could hardly understand a word they said.
Total nonsense!

For the TEN THOUSANDTH TIME, NO YOU CAN"T!!!!!
The breakthrough rate is 0.008%, which represents 5,318 cases out of the first 85,000,000 fully vaccinated, NOT "millions" And you consider one individual , asymptomatic, that tested positive a few days after 1 dose of the vaccine "proof" that you can get COVID after vaccination. Thank God you're not a scientist on this project.

Next will be if you prove positive to the flue or the common cold.
He wouldn't be in close contact for 1 more day with anyone he hadn't been with for the past week.
I'm surprised they didn't seal him in a bubble suit and cart him away.

The initial two vaccines that were approved had an 88% effective rate and a 95% effective rate. However when I find strange is that as a golfer he certainly do not have to be anywhere near any other golfer to play the sport with the exception of his caddy. Here's a guy who lost out on one and a half million dollars roughly for really no reason except politics

Sorry to say I don't know where you got your statistics but the actual test rates when the first 30,000 were done for each vaccine Where 88% and 95%. I can quote where I got where did you get yours? And by the way the j&j statistics are much much less

Here’s is the story. He had been notified that he had been in the company of someone who had tested positive for COVID. Upon hearing this he was tested for COVID and tested negative. This was on Wednesday. He then received his first shot of the vaccine. He tested negative again on Thursday. On Friday he positive. Under the PGA protocol the ran the test again on the sample he given Friday to make sure it was not a false positive. On Saturday while he was on the course the test came back positive again. As he walked off the course he was met by the PGA doctor who informed him of the second positive test. This is when Rahm said not again. They said that the vaccine shot he had received did not have enough time to give him immunity.

It was interesting to see that after they informed him and prepared to escort him off the green, he was surrounded by several guys and hugged. Obviously, those folks that hugged him and closely escorted him from the course, were NOT concerned about contagion. It was just an observation. I would not have been concerned either, considering I've had my vaccination and I am sure they probably had theirs also. If so, it seems like the rules are a bit outdated. Just my opinion, but it seems hardly necessary to remove the guy, if he has no observable symptoms and the majority of folks are either too far distanced to be exposed or have already been immunized. I do realize that one can be asymptomatic and contagious, but like I said what is the chance that anyone was in danger of being infected at this point? Just my observation, since I have not shared the same hysteria and panic others seem to allow to rule their life.
