On September 22, Beijing time, after the outbreak of the epidemic, the pattern of golf in China has undergone various changes. One of the changes is the composition of players. For example, in the usual year and September, whether it is professional or amateur, you are not It is easy to see the faces of international students, because this is usually the beginning of the school season in the United States, and they have all returned to campus.
However, at the "GAC Honda-2020 China Amateur Open Series-Chengdu" held at the Chengdu Poly Lafite Golf Club this week, there were many foreign students. One of them was Lu Jingwen from Shanghai, a third year student from Northwest University (Chicago). student.
但是，本周在成都保利拉菲高尔夫俱乐部举行的“ GAC Honda-2020中国业余公开赛-成都”上，有很多外国学生。其中之一是来自上海的卢敬文，是西北大学（芝加哥）的三年级学生。学生。
If this is not surprising, she didn't fall asleep until 5 o'clock in the morning today, because she had an online class all night. This is a problem that all American students studying abroad must face.
Due to the new crown epidemic, many American students have returned to China. In the near future, they have not been able to return to campus and can only take online classes at home.
"Our physical education students are okay. Like when we were in school, because we had to practice football, we usually chose the course in the morning," Lu Jingwen said. "The same is true for most of my courses this semester. It will end at 12 o'clock in the evening or before 1 o'clock in the morning."
Some other courses, introduced by Lu Jingwen, can be reviewed, so there is no need to drive the night to the morning.
There is only this course. First of all, this is her compulsory course: Organizational Management (Lu Jingwen majors in Organizational Management), which must be taken. Secondly, the class time is long, and the professor requires students to communicate in class, so you must stay up late to connect.
"I was almost asleep for a while last night, but I was still communicating," Lu Jingwen said with a smile.
Fortunately, she only takes this class once a week, so she can participate in the competition with peace of mind. In fact, today she slept until 11 o'clock, resurrected with full blood, and went full of energy. She played 18 holes with two international students, Wu Zhuang (Yale University) and Li Yufeng (University of California, Berkeley). In addition to yesterday's guest match, she has already practiced two games in Chengdu.
"Usually my trajectory is quite low, usually there will be a lot of rolling. It may be that there is a lot of rain here, the field is relatively wet, there is no rolling, I feel that the distance is quite long, and it is quite difficult," Lu Jingwen said. Once I was able to compete in Chengdu, it was also because a few friends from Shanghai came to the competition together. I hope to play a game happily. When the China Amateur Open was held in Shanghai last time, I played a round of six. But there is also a bad score. I hope I can play steadily in all three rounds this time. This is my goal this week."
From this perspective, this is also different from the college league. "Playing in the college league is for the honor of the school. You definitely want to play well. Especially, I have a school scholarship. You don't want to disappoint the school," Lu Jingwen said. "But now the results are only tied to the individual, so there is no such share. pressure.
"In addition to playing college league, the schedule is set by the coach, everything you need to listen to the coach. Here, the schedule can be determined by yourself. For example, it is only the second week of school and the schoolwork is not so tight, so I can register for the competition. As the exam is approaching, I will definitely not sign up, after all, I still focus on my studies."
Lu Jingwen said that the life of sports students is not as easy as some people think. The coach will definitely work hard to coordinate his studies with the college league, but sometimes there is no way to reconcile it. She gave an example of a school team member who even had to take an exam on the plane.
"Because the professor wants this student to take the exam at the same time as other students," Lu Jingwen said, "so the paper is sealed by the professor and given to the instructor, while the students answer the questions on the plane, and the instructor seals it in an envelope after the prescribed time. Give the professor a review."
So the two modes have their own hardships, but now this mode, whether you like it or not, you have to accept it.
“Our school found the first case in March. When I left at the end of March, there were six cases. Now everyone has gone home and I don’t know how many cases there are. People I know have also been infected,” Lu Jingwen said. "I definitely hope to be able to go back and return to my normal university life. But it's good to be with my family when I come back this time."
Okay, relatives who are dear, get along for a long time, and sometimes they bite their tongues. "I was still asking my mother that day: Where is your heart that loves me?" Lu Jingwen jokingly joked.
Yes, there are too many things that the epidemic has changed. Regardless of good or bad, each of us must learn to adapt and face it actively. Lu Jingwen seems to have done a good job at this point.
"I think there is nothing wrong with taking online classes like this. It must be different from what we have in school, but we can also learn things, get credits, and graduate," she said.
can also participate in golf competitions. This is also a place to be thankful for international students during the epidemic.
