I love his demeanor on the course and can only hope he will realize how serious covid is becoming. Both him and Brodie can reach many of our young people. After watching the news tonight I feel we need all hands on deck.

Here is the video with Paul and Brodie... its about three weeks old.https://www.google.com/url?sa=t&sour...kqV08fZlvvvpID

DGPT Tour Director, the guy running the show. Hes always masked up, setting a good example but then hardly anybody else.

Were the toilet paper hoarders right?

Ahead of their time. Clearly.

Or was it part of the conspiracy . . . ?

Brodie may be older but the persona he puts forth (or has if it isn't just for marketing/the camera) seems to be nice guy frat boy. Nothing wrong with that for his purposes, just saying I don't see him taking a lead role in the pandemic. Though in last night's of this video he did talk about how half his national champion ultimate team quit when they found out the year's team wasn't going to be partying and other activities not conducive to taking an athletic performance seriously, so maybe there is a bit of hope.

As for Paul, I wish he would take it more seriously too, but to be fair are the top athletes in other sports? I haven't been paying attention to what they or celebrities have been doing but would be pleasantly surprised if our top athletes were helping to spread a positive message.

While I agree that leaders setting a good example is important, I would think the Tour Director has some levers to pull to influence the behavior of both spectators and players at tour events.
