Despite most of America ditching their muzzles, even forcing the pro-mask White House to roll back its mandate (otherwise look even more like a naked Emperor), the PGA Tour will make unvaccinated players wear masks indoors even after testing negative for COVID.

Players who have been vaccinated will be allowed to walk around without a muzzle.

According to a source via text, the PGA Tour “sent a memo that said only vaccinated guys can take off masks in clubhouses… if you are not vaccinated you wear a mask.”

The source also noted that the galleries in New orleans, Charlotte, and Dallas, or this week at Kiawah, are all essentially mocking the mask enforcers.

“Yet the tour continues the charade?,” he added.

The policy will go into effect next week at Colonial in Texas which is a free state and does not have a mask mandate.

Last month, the tour announced plans to allow vaccinated players to avoid weekly covid tests, while making life uncomfortable for the unvaccinated.

    • Not sure what you were reading but nowhere in this article does it mock those who died of covid. It mocks the idea of a muzzle for athletes who’ve tested negative for the virus. But nice try.

      PS – Would have allowed your comment if not for the language and personal attacks. Enjoy your day. -Jeff
