Apparently, BK and Michelob are sending cases of beer to those escorted out.

F*** Bryson. That is no reason to have people escorted out. 

If people are saying it, they are doing to get to Bryson, for whatever reason, not as a “playful” gesture. Practice rounds, go for it. Real deal, maybe hold that to yourself. Sure, he should be able to cancel that out, but he also shouldn’t have to go through it. 
Edit: it shouldn’t be reason to be totally thrown out but at least warned or something.

I think Bryson brings it on himself with his sort of smart alec involvement in the situation. That photobomb was very childish in my opinion. I I think many have lost some respect for Bryson. People shouldn't be heckling the players like that although.

Warned for what? It’s ridiculous.

So Bryson ribs BK by saying he’s living rent free in BK’s head….then he whines like a baby and has spectators removed for yelling ‘Brooksy’? What a douche.

Smart alec involvement? How? He walked by on a walkway and apparently didn’t say anything (there was speculation that he did say something, but it doesn’t appear to be the case; I would concede this point if he did say something). How is walking by on a walkway childish? Geez, this is hardly ruining some family’s photo at Disney World or something. Good grief 🤦‍♂️

The jabber has been kept outside someone actively playing their round. He doesn’t deserve the heckling he’s received while playing his own. Sure, he should be able to handle it, but he shouldn’t have to. If the same thing were to happen to Brooks next, I’d be against that too.

We’ve seen it happen before, where someone roots against a player yelling land in a trap or something and they get tossed.

Sure there’s entertainment value in it. But, imo, keep it outside of someone playing.

I think Bryson is now thinking everything was taken a step too far. Hence his actions. He certainly has his own share of blame.

Fair point, and I pretty much agree. I guess the obvious counter would be: could you imagine kicking out fans for the same conduct at other sporting events, e.g., football or basketball? I guess golf is different though.

You answered it yourself. Would this heckling be ok at the Masters? Yes, this tournament isn’t that. But, who’s to say when this will end too.

Maybe they should disqualify Bryson from the tournament for whining?

Realistically, golf is a game that will always demand a level of decorum from spectators. The reason why is because golf's spectators have demanded as much. Having an atmosphere like football, basketball or hockey won't do. If someone were looking for that, they wouldn't be at a golf tournament in the first place.

    • Day 85: A bit of putting practice after getting home from a long travel day. 
    • I am still searching for a “drop in handicap.” My game seems to be improving but I am still not scoring lower. Can’t explain it.
    • I remember going through those types of situations. A combination of perhaps a fear of damaging the beautiful turf and not having some taller grass to support the ball up off the solid ground. Hitting out of the rough allows more leeway or room for error. during one such period I went to the range and spent quite a while brushing the turf between each shot to get familiar with what I had to work with and get comfortable with a tight lie. eventually you will come to realize that it really comes down to developing a consistent low point to the swing through lots of practice. 
    • Day 116 (23 Oct 21) - worked w/putter and straight edge.  Used both the DF992 and White Steel #5 - big difference in feel.  Drills were to overcome the push I tend to see.  More work needed, but the straightedge does provide the right feedback. 
    • I have been playing on a couple of inexpensive courses to learn , I played on an expensive country club course today and the fairways were in better condition than the greens at the courses I usually play. Very short grass.   I had a very very hard time hitting off these fairways ,  I had been getting into a groove on the lesser courses and my play was rapidly improving with my off fairway approach game being the best part of my game. I went from hitting at least 10 80 to 100 yard shots in a round onto the green from the fairway to hitting maybe 3 of 13 of them today. My hits were a medley of ground balls , tops, and other disasters.    The only grass range I have access to has very coarse rough type grass , should I just practice taking some exaggerated divots on it ? I read about playing a tee 8” or so in front of the ball to practice hitting ahead of it. Open to any other suggestions. Today was humbling.
