  • Open Championship - Only clapping and cheers

    Watching the Open Championship and my wife turned to me and said "Did you notice no one is shouting stupid things when the players hit the ball" I wasn't really listening for the yells but started paying attention and she was right, polite clapping and cheers. Not only was I surprised that she noticed but I think it added to the enjoyment not having the noise and distraction.

    Do you think anything can be done to quite the ignorant and annoying "get in the hole" and "mashed potato" yells at PGA events?

    No, there will always be someone loud and obnoxious in a crowd full of Americans IMO. It's part of what makes us Americans.

      I absolutely hate the yelling and would be in favor of immediate ejection from the event. There is nothing at all funny about it, you are just a loud stupid idiot.

        This is the correct approach.

                  It would take all of maybe one or two tournaments and it would stop.

                  Announce the policy at the end of this season. Start it with the first tournament next season. No exceptions, no second chances.

                    Right. I’ve heard loud/stupid comments serval times this week while watching a The Open. I even think there was video of someone saying Ripper Magoo earlier in the week.

                    I’m with the group that says eject them. It’s annoying and trashy.

                    I’m opposed to banning alcohol. Why punish the majority of responsible people for the dumb decisions of a few?

                      Maybe I haven’t heard as many, but I’ve heard plenty of stupid yells after tee shots this weekend. Part of it might be the weather, too - if someone wants to go and pound drinks and yell, they probably don’t want to do that in the rain and wind.

                          The Masters patrons are mostly Americans, and they don't act like idiots.

                          The first 100 years if professional golf in the US didn't have people acting like idiots.

                          Set a standard, enforce it and the yelling will go away.

                            When I went to the Masters, the crowd behaviour was impeccable and a pleasure to be around, so criticism of Americans is unfair. I think golf tournaments attract people who know more about beer than golf in USA. Here they drink all day without having to go to golf.

                              Maybe they were just situated near the final holes, so they weren't heard earlier.
                              Saturday, there was a lot of singing, football team songs and such (olay, olay...) not as loud on Sunday.
