Beijing time September 26, you might say that Tyler McCumber loves the tropics and likes to play in the water.
The 29-year-old American is a surfing enthusiast. When he ranked well on the PGA Tour, he was often surrounded by palm trees and waves.
Even so, Tyler McCabel still did not expect that he would be "trapped" in such a paradise for a month.
On Friday, he shot 71 at the Corrales Golf Course, plus a 65 in the first round, and easily entered the Dominican Championship weekend, tied for ninth place, and had a chance to sprint for the championship. After the event, he told about his experience of staying in Costa Rica for a month after the outbreak of the new crown epidemic.
"There were no flights out of Costa Rica. They basically closed the border, so I stayed there for a month with a friend who had a residence in Tamarindo," Taylor-McCabel said. As a result, I rushed a lot of waves."
He then concluded: "That must be a good place to be trapped."
Despite this, it is still strange to be so far away from home, especially since everyone's life has undergone tremendous changes during this period.
"When I was there, the COVID-19 pandemic changed drastically," said the son of 10 PGA Tour winner Mark McCumber. "I mean, my mind is spinning fast, giving Everyone I know calls:'What do you think? What should I do?'
“当我在那里的时候，COVID-19大流行发生了巨大变化，” 10个PGA巡回赛冠军Mark McCumber的儿子说。 “我的意思是，我的思想飞速旋转，给我认识的每个人打电话：'你怎么看？我该怎么办？'
"Where we are, there are not many confirmed cases. Everyone wears a mask, takes precautions, does the right thing, and I feel safe there. The only question is when will the PGA Tour restart? I must come back."
Mark McCaball finally returned to his home in Jacksonville, Florida, but there was nothing to do there. He lurked for a while, and eventually went on a camping trip with friends in Ashville, North Carolina, because he felt the safest outdoors.
When the PGA Tour returned in June, Mark McCappell also returned, but the initial results were disappointing. He only advanced one game in 7 races and was eliminated in the 2020-21 season opener Xi Reciprocity Open.
当PGA巡回赛在6月回来时，马克·麦卡佩（Mark McCappell）也回来了，但最初的成绩令人失望。他仅在7场比赛中晋级了一场比赛，并在2020-21赛季首战Xi Reciprocity Open中被淘汰。
But as mentioned above, when the waves were roaring in his ears, Mark McCappel started playing well. In 2018, he entered the PGA Tour for the first time through Monday qualifiers, the Dominica Championship. He eventually rushed into the last set on Sunday, but unfortunately he shot 75 in the final, he slipped down, but tied for 19th is still his best place on the PGA Tour. His second-best place was won at the 2020 Puerto Rico Open, when he was tied for 20th. Obviously, you also know what the environment is around you.
In 2019, he ranked 22nd on the Korn Ferry International Tour and gained full status on the PGA Tour this past season. Obviously, this week's outstanding performance he will turn things around.
