In the third round of the Memorial Tournament, Jon Rahm shot a 8-under 64 to secure a six-shot lead after 54 holes.
The Spaniard was then informed (on national TV no less) that he’d tested positive for COVID-19 – a disease so deadly that he built a nearly insurmountable lead over the past three days while infected.
Rahm was forced to withdraw.
#Covid – so dangerous to the young and healthy that Jon Rahm didn’t even know he was infected until his positive test came back – and had been easily beating every other golfer in the world this week.

For context: the PGA Tour is pushing vaccines hard, and many – including in this space – predicted they’d make examples of players who were vaccine hesitant.
A few weeks ago, in a post titled, ‘PGA Tour Plans to Implement COVID-19 Vaccine Passport Program,’ I wrote:
“These non-vaccinated players (which we are now betting will be about zero) will also forfeit the ease of mind that comes with no longer having to worry about test results – including false positives, and the potential loss of income – each and every week.
There is also no doubt that the PGA Tour and pro-vaccine testers will start making examples of non-vaccinated players through tests that are known for delivering false positives.”
The PGA Tour’s senior VP of tournament administration, Andy Levinson, who is despised by tour players for his insistence on vaccines, claimed he’s only following CDC guidelines – the same corrupt CDC that has continually lied to Americans throughout this ordeal including the origin of the virus.
“No, the CDC’s protocol regarding people who are confirmed positive for COVID-19 is clear, and that is 10 days of isolation unless someone is asymptomatic and is able to produce two negative tests of a minimum of 24 hours apart,” said Levinson.
“Unfortunately, the timing would not allow Jon to continue to participate.”
By embarrassing/suspending the world No. 3, and defending champion, who was leading by a half-dozen shots after three rounds… is there any stronger way to scare players into taking the experimental jab?
It’s almost mob-like: “Nice lead you have there. Be ashame if you lost it when holding an insurmountable lead after three rounds.”
In another post, I wrote:
Last month, the tour announced plans to allow vaccinated players to avoid weekly covid tests, while making life uncomfortable for the unvaccinated.
Jon Rahm was made to be real uncomfortable.
