Mostly thinking about grandstands around greens.
But was it ever considered a problem before the "stadium golf" era?  Major events were held there, and I presume spectators showed up.
Where he's from , he ought to be interested in this sort of football:   http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Gaelic_football   Oh, wait, he says he feels more British than Irish.  (And perhaps American as well?)
Thinking back to this thread:   http://thesandtrap.com/t/67798/merion-the-yale-bowl-and-butler-fieldhouse   Was the spectator problem, at least in part, due to forcing upon Merion a "stadium golf" setup it wasn't designed to handle, or was it too crowded in any case?
Not sure I understand about the players themselves deciding when to quit due to darkness.  There must be some sort of trigger.  Otherwise a player with, say, a medical problem could decide at 3PM on a sunny afternoon to say "it's too dark", go in for medical treatment and come back tomorrow.   Now suppose Phil had decided on the 18th tee or even on the fairway that it was too dark to play.  Could Ricky have finished on his own?  Would Phil's decision be binding on Rory...
Had this ended in a tie, I get the feeling Rory would have insisted on going ahead with the playoff tonight.
 People are born in the eras they're born in.  It has nothing to do with "fortunate".  It makes more sense to say Tiger Woods is fortunate to be born post-PGA-Caucasian-Clause.  Actually, if you want to place pro athletes in general in different eras, all the past ones are unfortunate because the money is so much bigger now.  Hogan's career earnings were something like $332,000.
 Which has nothing to do with his skill.  Nobody could touch Bobby Fischer at chess in his prime, and he was a complete *******.  Compared to Fischer, Hogan was Mr. Friendly.   A great many things were different.  That doesn't mean they were disorganized or unevolved.At least they didn't let TV run the whole thing. Tiger Woods just lets the TV people do that for him.
I don't think she ever had this as a "previous form". This is better. She may look like a contortionist doing it, but she's actually learned to putt well.
Any consideration given to Gary Player's shot in the 1972 PGA, described here (number 4)?:   http://bleacherreport.com/articles/234199-top-five-greatest-shots-in-pga-championship-history
