Is it just me or do the guys yelling at the Tee boxes during the PGA events bug the @#$! out of anyone else? Can the PGA do anything about this? Should they do something about this?

post #2 of 64

I don't know why they don't ban this -- kick people out. They would kick you out if you yelled over and over during the backswing.

post #3 of 64

Yes it bugs the @#$! out of me too.

 

Trying to stop it is probably a can of worms that the PGA doesn't want to open though.

 

Somebody would have to decide:

 

What can be said, how loudly it could be said, when it could be said, and whether any enforcement included all holes on all courses. (TPC at Scottsdale 16th hole? Lots of money there in that crowd of drunks).

 

Who enforces the rule. (Hire yell prevention security?)

 

What the penalty would be. (Escorted off of the property?).

 

What happens if whoever is enforcing the rule gets the wrong person and kicks them out. (A lawsuit?).

 

What happens if they won't go. (Probable cause for law enforcement?).

 

I have no answers and I'm glad I'm not in charge of solving it. I would probably do just what they are currently doing, which is nothing.

honestly jmo, as long as its not offensive and not in the middle of their backswing, i kind of get a giggle out of the stuff people say.....  

post #5 of 64

I love it !!!! As long as it is AFTER the shot and not during the backswing...Who Cares !!!! I'd like to know who started the "mashed potato" epidemic and give them a high five 

 

If anyone wants to follow me during my round and scream it... be my guest... you probably will not stay for long though !!!!

Kick them out.  "In-the-hole!!" guy is a moron.  It's not clever, it's not entertaining, and having to listen to that idiocy ruins the broadcast.

 

 It's the ultimate "look at me" moment. Why not just yell "look at me!!", or "I'm a giant tool!!!" 

 

Hey, in-the-hole guy, you're a dumb ass. I hate these pricks.  They don't add anything to the event.  The next time I'm at a PGA event and I hear this POS yell something stupid, I'm in his face yelling STFU.  I tune in to watch the golf, not listen to stupidity.

The "in the hole" guy is out dated, I do agree with you on that note. I love the mash potato because it has nothing to do with golf.

 

I wonder if the guy who first say it is sitting around telling his buddies that he started it... I know i would

The thing that gets on my goat is the "Get in the hole" shout too, granted if, say, the player is on a par-3 the ball has hit the green off the tee and it looks like it has the line to the pin, but half the time, they'd shout the bugger at anything, soon, I'm expecting a caddie to pull out a bottle of water from the bag and someone shout it.

 

I like shouts for players, dont get me wrong, like "Luuukkkkkkkeeeeeeeeee", and obviously, fans have a god given right to support their favourite players/team, spur them on, thats all part of sport. But to shout absolute bollocks for the sake of shouting absolute bollocks, well, its no fun really, and spoils the occasion for me when I'm watching it on the TV.

 

Yes, the Mashed Potato thing was funny, but, give it a few months, and the mashed potato bloke will be up there with the get-in-the-hole bloke too in the list of "Will you just shut the **** up!" list! :D

As Mr Alliss put in his tweet:

 

Has the vote for the flag on 15 for the PGA been taken? I vote it should be placed in the mouth of the chap who shouts "get in the hole".

Why wouldn't they stay for long?

I agree that these particular golf fans are overtly annoying, at the least. 

 

This raucous behavior gets amusing at the Waste Management event's 16th hole, and then you add the caddie race, but once a year is enough...    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Wb4EWPybZjo

 

If you took a poll of people who loved it and people who hated this behavior, the results would probably be that the people who find it most annoying are older, more traditional golfers, and the ones who accept it as unobjectionable, even exciting, would be those who drink a six pack or more on the course during their round of golf.

 

Penalty?  The PGA should round up all of the shouters, put them on a platform in the middle of a water hazard on the course, and then every time they shout, "In the hole," "You 'da man," or something else that could be considered idiotic, open a trap door on the platform.

Does it bother me? Not at all. Do I think it is creative, intelligent, or necessary? No not at all.

 

But does that mean these people should be kicked out? No, they are not hurting anyone, they are not breaking any rules. They paid money to enjoy the event and if that is how they get enjoyment then more power to them. Its not during the swing, so I am not sure what the issue would be

post #14 of 64

Remember when streaking was the craze? Dumbasses would run onto baseball fields naked, or drunk fans would try to cause a scene by running onto a football field or whatever. The TV networks covering the events made a decision to not show these morons. Guess what happened - it stopped occurring.

 

Networks can 'mute' the audio the moment after impact so these jackbag's comment aren't heard on TV. 

 

Take away the stage, the actor disappears.

The proper use of "bababooey" is to say it at least twice - "Bababooey, bababooey" - used to be a Howard Stern listener before he went to Sirius.

The only one I heard that was mildly entertaining was after a Jim Furyk drive. Somebody yelled, "FIVE HOUR ENERGY!". It got a chuckle out of me. All the other guys are just dumarses.

post #17 of 64

I can't stand it.

 

The players themselves should be able to request these guys to be ejected.

 

Other than that, I'd be happy if the networks just edited the shout out of the show.
 

post #18 of 64

Nope. It's not just you! Morons - the lot of them. Not sure what can be done though for some of the reasons already listed.
