We love Mexico, especially some of the golf courses that derive from its beautiful tropical landscape; however, it might not be a bad idea to postpone all traveling plans to Mexico until this big “swine flu” dilemma cools off a bit. Let us be clear about something first: We are not doctors, nor are we professional health regulators. However, we are avid golf enthusiasts and we deeply care about others who love the sport of golf as much as we do.
If you’re still not sold on the severity of Mexico’s swine flu epidemic and still insist on traveling across the border to test out your newly tweaked golf swing, take a look at who is avoiding the troubled nation: The Nationwide Tour. Scheduled for May 21 – 24, The Nationwide Tour’s Mexico Open golf tournament has been postponed for the safety purposes. On a related note, The Canadian Tour has also decided to postpone their upcoming tour dates scheduled for the Mexican countryside. To sum things up a little better, most events taking place in Mexico are either being postponed or outright canceled.
If you happen to have a golfing vacation scheduled for the next couple of weeks, you might want to call your travel agent and see if you can delay your departure. Take the extra time at home researching some additional golfing tips so that when the time to vacation in Mexico actually does come, you’ll be more prepared to show off your better golf swing to your golfing partners and most likely have a better final score than them also.
