and there is the truth....."most people"....not just disc golfers, but most "people". Pro disc golfers are no different than other people. Look around your community, how many people social distance and wear masks? There are states where masks are mandatory and yet there are still people that won't wear them. It would be nice to see them wear masks since they are appearing in a video....but, it's their choice - and did the state they played in make masks mandatory?

I get the frustration....I see it in my state of Arizona where masks are not mandatory. I don't wear my mask playing disc golf, but I do social distance. In the stores, I wear a mask. For disc golf, a mask restricts my breathing and fogs my glasses; so I opt to social distance as best as I can.

Disclaimer: I have ordered a different mask to try and see if that improves my breathing and reduces the fogging of my glasses.

Just an FYI if a mask fits correctly it won't fog your glasses as your exhalation won't be escaping up, but going out the front / everywhere through the material the mask is made of.

You likely know this, just wanted to mention in case others are reading who didn't. I'm a fan of ones that have a metal nose piece that can be bent/formed around your nose to provide a better seal.

As for Paul, Brody and company....they haven't been social distancing for some time if you look at Foundation's youtube channel.

I live in Arizona and found a neck gaiter that converts to a whole bunch of things...it provides UV protection and you can wet it and it will keep cool. So, as a bonus, in the summer, I'll be able to use it around my neck to keep cool......and keep from getting burnt.

Mine has the metal nose piece that I can bend to fit better. The mask has tie strings instead of the around the ears things, so I tie the top tie and leave the bottom untied to breathe better, but my glasses still fog up - not as much...but still annoying.

The trouble is that the annoyance of sometimes fogging, makes it less likely I'll wear it. Which is why I'm looking for something better. More comfortable = more likely to use it.

Nice, but my mask doesn't have the elastic that goes over the ears, it has four ties that you have to knot behind your head. It's an annoyance to have to tie/untie the mask over and over....so hopefully my next option will be more user-friendly.

Wearing a mask and fogging up my sunglasses has helped me develop muscle memory to keep my head down and minimize griplock throws. No desire to pop up and look at your target when you can't see anything.
