They should stop it. You hear this insane yelling in the middle of a swing. I don't know how the tour pros put up with it.

I guess I don't really understand the question but I'll try to answer.  I don't believe I have a high sensitivity to what people say or do in most cases.  At least not at sporting events as long as the language & behavior is acceptable.  That is not to say I am not annoyed at times at what is said or done, but I would not interfere with anyone's right to say it in most cases.  I don't care for drunks and would prefer to not be around them, but as long as the language and behavior is acceptable I don't bother them.  But in most places it is illegal to be drunk in public so I would advise calling a Cop and not calling out a drunk yourself.  If you want to make a fool out of yourself in public that is OK with me as long as you don't interfere with me and my ability to enjoy the event.  You don't, neither do I, have a right to not be annoyed upon occasion by what others say or do as long as it doesn't do you harm in some way.  So while I would agree that shouting "in the hole"  for a tee shot on a 500 yard drive is stupid, I don't let it bother me and still don't know why it bothers anyone.  I would agree there are unacceptable things you can say and do at a public event, but the question here is yelling "in the hole".  Seems pretty harmless to me albeit stupid most of the time.

So you find it annoying but it doesn't interfere with your enjoyment of the event. You're possibly in the minority because most people who commented think they're both annoying and find it does interfere with their enjoyment of the event. I'm somewhere in the middle. I can ignore them personally, but if someone told them to shut the F up, I'd applaud that.

I feel it brings down what is supposed to be an honorable  game and wish it would stop . I feel that allowing it to continue will only bring on worse behavior in the future . to stop it I would give 1 warning per hole at the beginning of the day , any breach of this would be grounds for removal . jmho, Mark

<--------- I resemble that remark

PS - agree, it's getting tired.    They should come up with some new material ... I thought the Mashed Potatoes guy was going to catch on ...

Yes, except that yelling "MOO" at cows is hilarious.

I heard that a few times as well.  I think most of the yelling to be obnoxious, but I caught myself chuckling at this one.

It's idiotic and I'm 100% in favor of a task force to beat these guys into pulp. No one thinks it's funny, everyone around that person in the gallery thinks they're an idiot along with the millions viewing it at home. This is golf, not football. I'm not uptight in the least, but this is just annoying.

I have to admit that it's extremely annoying.  I'm convinced that not only is it shouted by drunken idiots but probably by self-absorbed idiots who want to know that the whole world heard their contribution to a particular event.

Yes I seem to be in the minority but this would not be the first time I find myself in that position.  But maybe it doesn't bother me because when you go to the Phoenix Open you expect it to be noisy and you will run into an occasional drunk. I have never attended a PGA event outside of AZ and probably won't ever have the opportunity to do that.  I have gone to some LPGA events and for whatever reason the crowds seem better behaved (and smaller).  If someone told the "in the hole" guy to "shut the F up" I'm not sure I would applaud but I'd certainly understand.  But again it would be my advice to call a cop if you believe the fellow is out of line and disrupting the event.

The Wasted Management and the Bear Trap seem to be examples where this behaviour is at least tolerated if not encouraged.

I like the atmosphere of the Waste Management or when the crowd gets excited over a great shot - the Tiger roar or on the back 9 coming down the stretch on a Sunday afternoon. But yelling "it's in the hole" is so tired and frankly lame. They must do it so their buddies watching on TV will know they were there....or something equally dumb.

Great atmosphere, but it only works/is tolerated at that one particular event. The grandstand on the par 3, 16th is the rowdiest place in golf by far. Cheering like mad men on a great shot and raining down boo's for anyone who misses the green. It's what I imagine the Colosseum was like during Rome's golden age.

    • Probably had my best shot of the week/month/year/life today. I was hitting block fades with driver all day today (well each of the 5 times I hit driver anyways), so on #18, I predictably hit a block fade over the trees on the right of the hole onto an adjacent fairway. If you hit the ball far enough to get past the trees, you have an unobstructed approach to the green, but the green becomes shorter front to back than if you are in the right fairway due to the bad angle. I was about 135 yards to the hole, slightly uphill (I could see the top half of the pin). Without my PW I had to hit a partial 9-iron. I flushed it and the flight of the ball never left the flag. I almost wanted to do a Tiger club twirl and start confidently stalking after the ball. I saw it hop once and then lost sight of the ball behind some mounds. Walked up to the green and saw my ball peaking out of the cup atop the pool noodle. Pitch mark was about 8 feet from the hole. First eagle since I was in college 20+ years ago.
    • 97, 51/46 with a 10 on a par five on the front (3 water balls). First time playing this course, Maccasin Run in PA. Beautiful track. Absolutely pristine.  Grass everywhere even in the rough. Leaves cleared off. Tightly mown. No excusses for hitting a bad shot.  Weather low 50s with a slight breeze.  
    • Shot an 86 today, with 13 GIR/nGIR, 29 putts, and 2 penalty strokes. Only carried 8 clubs today (Driver, 3-hybrid, 5/7/9-iron, 50/60 degree wedge, putter), so hit a lot of partial shots, which I enjoyed. Overall golf was very solid, but I had two bad holes where I was +7. First one was on #1, where I blocked my drive down the right side, bounced off a cart path into the ether, so dropped with a 2 stroke penalty. Then my approach (4th stroke) got rejected by a branch, and 5th shot was over the green. Pitch on and 2 putts for an 8 (+4). Second one was on the par-3 7th. Another block, this time with 5-iron, also caught a cart path and bounced about 30 yards past the green. Rushed my 2nd shot since I was standing in the playing line of golfers on another hole and came up well short. Another pitch landed short, and finally a pitch onto the green and 2 putts for a 6 (+3). Finished the round with a hole out for eagle on the 18th which made the round very satisfying overall.
    • Holed out an approach for eagle in today’s round. I think it’s been over 22 years since my previous (and only other) eagle.
    • Day 352 Played 18 today. Really stiff and sore from painting and moving furniture around all weekend, so only carried 8 clubs. Focused on good takeaway/backswing and tempo. Played pretty well, except for 2 holes where I was +7.
