    Suddenly, all those ridiculous and outrageously embarrassing things I did in my youth don't seem so bad now.

    Fortunately there are no rules limiting the number of golf balls you can carry during a match!

      Looks like some Dolt got turfed at the Waste Managemant for yelling at Jordan S.

Golf is in a process of innovation as it searches for a short-form version to attract the new generation. Yet the answer is there right under their nose and this is not the time to be sniffy. Rather than putting up archaic rules and making the fan feel as if he or she is attending a religious service conducted by the Plymouth Brethren circa 1810, why not put the emphasis on entertainment and enjoyment? So what if the attendees are, gasp, a bit tipsy, so what if they yell and cheer inappropriately and take the mick out of the multi-millionaires? As long as it does not go overboard, then it is in these professionals’ capabilities to survive some noise.
        I believe I understand your points. However, I don't believe that lowering the bar in the name of 'entertainment and enjoyment' for some people will be a good thing for the game in general. Just because some boisterous and/or drunk louts feel the need to act like fools at a golf tournament does not mean that the rest of us should just learn to live with it. Let the louts grow up and learn to behave themselves rather than ask the rest of us to 'loosen up'.

        A golf tournament is not like the other major 'stadium' sports, mainly because the fans are much closer to the players, there are fewer fans in the vicinity of a given group of players, the fans in the vicinity of a group generate relatively little noise, and any loud noise 'anomalies' are not always appropriate nor universally welcome.

        I doubt that many professional golfers have a problem with general crowd noise, but instead would object to these unexpected noise anomalies during their swings.

          In America they are allowed to carry guns. If they passed a law that yelling “get in the hole” or someting else at a golf tournamnet allowed the other attendees to shoot you with no repurcussion it would stop pretty quick. OK, I am being mostly facetious but this behaviour seems so undignified to me that I wonder why people who would do that bother attending a golf event instead of some other event where yelling is more acceptable.

                    This behaviour is getting outrageous, and starting to become a real problem, you try to ignore it and it just won't go away - The Tiger example outlined by the OP really pissed me off...

                    Rory and Justin's comments this weekend speak volumes as to how the pros are starting to get really frustrated. Completely agree with what Rory said in that the circus that accompanies Tiger costs him a couple of strokes a round - Not to mention what it must have done to them (In addition to Rors needing an Advil)...

                    The dark side is what Justin was 'touching' on in his comments to GOLF SI:

                    He seems to be alluding to at some point, this is going to lead to violence, either by a pro or a member of the gallery. On a personal note, I've never stood by anyone yelling stupidly, but I know if the time comes, I'll say something to the idiot as some of you have - Something's going to happen on the tour at some point, seems inevitable.

                    (PS: I'm a Stern fan as well, and 'Babbabooey' himself Gary Dell'abate, now a passionate golfer thinks it's ridiculous, but likes the fact it used to indicate a Stern fan when it first started, he feels people yell it now without knowing who he is. Can't blame Howard for this in my opinion, but we know any publicity is good publicity to him so he's not going to complain)

                        IMO, the most straight-forward solution to the general problem of yelling after a shot is for the TV coverage to briefly suspend the audio when most of these outbursts occur. This approach seemed to work well when networks cut away from covering fans who entered the field of play.

                        I have to believe that most of these clowns want to be heard on the TV broadcast, and many of them would have given others advance notice of what they plan to do. So, if they're never heard by anyone other than those in the immediate area, this juvenile practice should fade out fairly quickly.
