    I posted this in the "Does it matter who yells fore" thread:

    At a golf tournament, with these guys carrying their drives as long as they do, and with the buzz of the crowds, how many people almost 300 yards away hear the people on the tee yelling "Fore" to begin with? And if it is into the wind it is even less likely to be heard. If multiple people are on the tee watching the tee shots, including marshals with their paddles indicating the direction of the ball, is one more voice going to make a difference? Do spectators at an event have an obligation themselves to be aware of and pay attention to what they supposedly came to watch with golf balls flying around at speeds well over 150mph? Look at how many people have been tragically hurt at baseball ballgames by not paying attention!

    For us amateurs while playing it is a different story as there are typically only as many as three others with us that may or may not be paying attention. Plus, when we are out there it is pretty darn quiet in comparison to the noise at a professional tournament.

      Iíll put this one in here as well.

      But, is one more person yelling fore going to hurt?

        Certainly not going to hurt but does it really make a difference?

          But does it not?

          Even if it only makes a FRACTION of a difference, thatís a projectile headed at human beings at over a hundred miles per hour.

            I yell FORE all the time on errant shots but find nobody does anything. They either still go about their business, or just look up. No one makes an effort to see what is going on, or ducks. When I watch golf on the tube (funny saying, as nobody has a "tube" tv anymore) I notice not one spectator moves after FORE is called out, not one. Shouting FORE is the right thing to do, but I am not sure it makes a difference, still I won't stop my warnings.

              Us playing? Yes. At a professional tournament I say no with everything else going on. If the player were yelling separately, yes, but at the same time as others, no.

                I'm pretty much on board with this. Someone already raised the point that it happens so fast, it's hard to get 'FORE!' out for the person who hit the shot. If you're downrange, the odds that you're going to look up, spot the ball, and avoid it - for me, the odds of that are slim. I've also always felt that the worst thing someone downrange can do is to raise their face up and look for an incoming ball. Not arguing we shouldn't yell 'FORE!' - but I think the odds that it's going to keep someone for getting hit are not very good.
                You ain't bonafide.

                  Definitely agree because as we hit we first see where that ball is very likely heading within a Second or less and I feel it is an unwritten rule or courtesy to show you care. Put his family out there and let it happen and see what he says being on the other side...

                    If everybody else in the group has yelled fore/indicated that the ball is going offline, then it's hard to argue that one more voice would make a difference from 300 yards away, but I understand how the lack of any gesture would be perceived.

                      It just seems like it's common golf etiquette to yell fore if you hit one offline, regardless if others are yelling or not.

                          Yup, simple enough and more people yelling it as soon as possible is also good.

                          To me it’s a fact that not enough pros yell fore quickly enough.

                            I don't know what may be the protocol for Tour golf galleries. For regular amateur play, if one knows their ball is on a line to miss someone, it's best to not yell fore (to prevent the person from possibly moving in to the line of the ball's flight).

                              That's a pretty big assumption. There are plenty of times and circumstances where the guy swinging the club is the LAST one to see where the ball is going and it only takes a split second.

                                I disagree. You may lose eye shot of it, but you KNOW when itís hit poorly and a severe miss, at least when some level of consistency in the game is established you do. Then, when in ANY doubt, yell fore. Itís simple.
