Adam Hadwin joins Scott Stallings by openly wondering if he’d continue play if certain COVID-19 rules are in place during Tour events. The The Tour’s 27th ranked in Strokes Gained has issues with leaving the flagstick in while putting.
I get that a golfer’s (especially for Tour calibre players) competency is all about comfort levels and omitting as much indecision and doubt as possible. Yet (again) those who are mentally tough and can persevere thru mental roadblocks are more apt to succeed than those who lean on excuses why their play suffers. In addition, everyone will have to adapt–so at least its a “level” playing field.
Golf.com’s Josh Berhow reports on why Hadwin appears to throw up the white flag without even giving it an honest chance.
