    Golfer screwed out of $1.7 million due to Covid

    This is madness. The Spanish golfer was on his way to a huge payday with a 6 stroke lead in the 3rd round of a tournament, then tested positive for Covid. He had to forfeit even though he had no symptoms. What a cruel joke on the poor guy...

    Golfer Jon Rahm Was Cruising Toward a $1.7 Million WinUntil His Positive Covid Test




    Jon Rahm sank his final putt at the Memorial Tournament on Saturday with a six-stroke lead and a cakewalk to a lucrative purse.
    Moments later he was in agony. He had tested positive for Covid-19.

    Rahm withdrew from the tournamentand forfeited his chance to win nearly $1.7 millionafter officials informed him of his positive result. The incident was a stark reminder that while vaccines have provided a safety net for fans to return to golf tournaments, NBA arenas and MLB stadiums, the virus isnt yet done upending those same sports events.

    For Rahm, the consequences have a price tag. The 26-year-old Spaniard, ranked No. 3 in the world, is perhaps the best golfer today without a major to his name. His brilliant play in this tournament at Muirfield Village Golf Club in Dublin, Ohio was highlighted by a hole-in-one during his second round. He had a huge lead and there was no reason to think there was any chance of him getting caught.


    Then as he walked off the 18th green he was informed of perhaps the only thing that could beat him: coronavirus.

    Last I heard - please correct me if I'm wrong, - golf is played outdoors, one of the least risky environments. Just warn unvaccinated people to stay 2 meters or more away from him.

    Why in hell are they testing him during a tournament especially when the flu season is over? Who in the hell is he going to infect? His caddie? the Caddy should drop out or take precautions if he is scared of the flu.

    Yes, I am saying that most of the covid-19 BS was the flu. How else do we explain why the flu infection rate dropped to virtually zero. We had a bad flu season in which people died, just like they always die of the flu. In my opinion.

    BTW was he fully vaccinated?
