The way covid has been handled is crazy in my opinion. Its an over-glorified flu. it is mental, now that we have learned so much about it all we can do is roll out vaccines to help prevent and if that still doesnt satisfy ye then sit in the fckin house and dont leave it

Well said Sammy. Now put a few jocks on please.

Why anyone pays their slightest bit of attention to what Rory says is beyond me as he is just as likely to say the complete opposite next week. He definitely comes across as not the brightest lad around, even when talking about golf tbh and is liable to come out with any oul guff ewhrn asked a question during his media duties.

No doubt he has a brilliant talent but when things go slightly awry with that talent he hasn't the foggiest clue what he might be doing wrong unlike other less talented people who have had to put more thought and work into developing their skills.

Having said all that it is extremely difficult to maintain the highest levels in golf and very few players have ever achieved this as evidenced by his status in Major roll of honour. If he has underachieved then so have a lot of very very talented golfers.

You believe that? Really? Golfers at his level know exactly what is going wrong. My take is that he was too loyal to Bannon, who won't relocate to the states and didn't travel during the pandemic. No one else (of the worlds elite golfers) spent last year without access to key person in their team and it showed. Bringing Cowan onboard will go a long way to rectify that but it will take time.

One of the great things about Woods was he made the consistency and ability to change his swing look effortless. It isn't, just ask Jordan Speith who from his Open win to the start of this year was no where. In fact he was looking like losing his tour card at the start of the year. Day and Kaymer are no where still, yet at one point they were no. 1 in the world and major winners. Cink (who had won since his open win) disappeared into obscurity until last year with a win to get him into the masters and has had a great season.

Are we not stuffed in the north now? Basically if the government want another lockdown then furlough ends soon so anything post furlough needs more money and any money would need to be approved by parliament which will hardly approve furlough money if England not getting it.

I don't think that a widespread "lockdown" will be needed, but even closing pubs etc would create a need for financial support.

No more closing anything. It's over. Would love to know if the roles were reversed would the OAPs throw away 2 years of their prime to help the youth?

Make up your own mind.

None of that put's him on the spectrum. The single length irons, putting side saddle etc... are not new ideas and in fact a lot of his ideas are not original. The flag stick stuff is just over explaining which we all already knew.

Dya really think so Gab?

Iím commenting on a high profile public figure with very unusual behaviour and thinking. In most walks of life that kind of person is described in this way.

Iím not describing him as destined for a sanitarium.

So basically as you are describing anyone who who is smarter than yourself and you don't understand what they are saying  :D

The risk with a 4th variant before vaccination has been completed is the development of a new variant that is resistant to vaccination.
Unlike the Wuhan variant , Delta is strong in summer.

Covid is seasonal, wtf you on about

Just like the big bad flu season of 2017/18, Angelo and Smurphy would be having a fit at these numbers during the hottest day of the year

 ;D

So. DeChambeau v Koepka. Whos the knob jockey. Or is it both. The bits ive heard its Dechambeau and just listening to him about his driver seems hes a knob in general. Educate me golf experts 😊

Bryson is a grade A twat, fully self-absorbed. But as heís on the spectrum he makes for quite an entertaining person. Heís used science to set up rewards through calculated risks and his unusual behaviour and style make him an enjoyable golfer to watch.

Koepka is just an extraordinarily dull individual.

He doesn't give 2 fcuks about engaging with the media so you assume he's dull.

Cheers lads. Didnt know he on spectrum tho from the bits ive seen it adds up. Yeah it was quite the statement today by his club provider, hopefully next few days are as entertaining

Is he on the spectrum? Just because someone says it doesn't mean it true.

Ladís Iím no conspiracy theorist or Gemma OíD supporting loon, but if you think it is anyones business bar your own who is and isnít vaccinated you are f**king nuts. Fair play to all the bars and restaurants who have said they will not be asking if you are vaccinated or not.

If someone doesn't want to get a covid vaccine then that is their choice. If someone wants to make a comparison between Nazi Germany and vaccinations then they absolutely deserve to be ridiculed and called out for their ignorance.

But itís not their choice, is it? It is for now, but not much longer.

Did they not give forced vaccines in the concentration camps?

Are you for real? You're comparing covid-19 vaccinations with the torture carried out in camps like Aushwitz. That's just mind boggling that you consider that a fair comparison and doesn't deserve a reply.

If you don't want to get the covid vaccine that's your choice, but if you are prevented from going somewhere because of it then you can't complain. For example If you want to smoke you can't go into a pub or restaurant. If you don't get the vaccine you are more likely to get covid as the vaccines can't guarantee you won't get covid, so why should I or anyone else be put at risk by being in the same closed space as an unvaccinated person 

You always have a choice in terms of getting the vaccine, but there are consequences for the choice not to take it and you have to decide if you are willing to accept them

Iím asking the question. I didnít compare. Concentration camps is not something Iím interested in, but they say that forced vaccinations apparently occurred in them.

You donít have a choice though. You do for now, but eventually you will be cut off from society if you donít. Even if you wear masks, socially distance, wash hands etc, youíll still be banned from all establishments. And it will be ALL establishments. So, you DONT have a choice. Thatís as near to forced vaccinations as itís possible to get.

Seriously lad cop the f**k on. I've been to Aushwitz, have you? If you don't want the vaccine, then that's on you. But to bring in the f**king Nazis to any argument should tell you you've already lost the argument.

All I'll say is grow up, cop on and visit Aushwitz. Then maybe you'll realize what real forced hell is like

No I havent been. I told you, it doesnít interest me, so why would I? And I didnít bring the nazis into the argument. I asked a question about the camps.

You should go, you might actually learn something.

It kinda is everyone's business, have you not forgot we are in a middle of a pandemic.

Australia back implementing lockdowns.... Spain at the same. This is no where near over yet.

ROI weekly update. As expected cases continue to rise and will likely be like that for at least another month. Small rise in hospital but remains in a stable condition.

16 in ICU. ( 2 more than last week)
58 in hospital (10 more than a week ago)
3665 cases ( 587 more than last week)

Q, should 58 people ( and God willing they all get better) or 0.00001% of the population be a reason that all indoor dining to be pretty much shut down.

Christ aboveÖ.. these people arenít the reason indoor dining is shut

Actually forgot about Portmarnock Links, thatís probably the best option if you want links but donít want over the tonne. Great course and the bit of money invested has really improved the condition. They have a Friday open too which could be a bit cheaper.

Castleknock is probably the most overrated course in Dublin. Plus itís oversubscribed too. Lutrellstown is a great suggestion.

ďThe Twitter troll forced to hand over £100,000 in libel damages to Stephen Nolan has advised Northern Ireland government officials in his well-paid role in economics and finance.

Fearing for his career, the Alliance party voter in his 40s, who used the Twitter handles ĎPastor Jimberooí and ĎPastor Jimberooís Ghostí to harass the BBC presenter, begged him not to reveal his identity.

Nolan has stuck to the agreement, saying it shows that he is the ďbigger manĒ.

Thatís from the Sunday Life story, it doesent necessarily make him a SpAd. People can advise government on a range of issues if they have the expertise. A SpAd is different.

100k for him to b the bigger man? The bigger man would have accepted an apology and costs.
