Hecklers at chambers bay


Recommended Posts

Our Sponsors

so do they not enforce rules at this course?? If it's not a putt putt course it's a hecklers paradise.

 

Two days in and literally every shot is accompanied by a moron screaming something stupid.

 

It's like those vuvuzelas from the South African World Cup...just ruining some enjoyment.

They tried like heck to make it as close to an Open Championship as possible with the course, conditions, and how people can spectate. Unfortunately they still had to use Americans for the actual spectators.

Maybe this is another reason why the open has not been in the northwest for quite sometime....the people....

Hey now. Not only pacific northwesterners are in the open as spectators!!

 

But! I have noticed a lot of events having that problem. Last one Rose was heckled before his putt and seems to have continued.

As far as the course goes it is perfect right now plenty of people under par. This is a US Open, not Agusta- then again Agusta is too pretty for my taste. No rough? What's that about. Only major that is played on the same course year in and year out. I'd like to see it removed.

unpopular opinion? Absolutely.

I just said Americans not Pacific North Westerners! LOL

 

Americans are rude, disrespectful people. It's the truth. They'll do anything to get on TV.

Whoa there! We may be drunk idiots at sporting events sometimes but nothing is more crazy than European soccer hooligans.

Maybe if golfers wish to continue to be considered athletes and paid like athletes, they should maybe be subject to the same conditions as other athletes.

 

Don't get me wrong...I'm not a huge fan of the whole mashed potatoes thing...but Poulter getting called Sally after leaving a putt short...should be fair game. Golf is sport, and part of the reason why it's not bigger is the expectation that fans conduct themselves like they're having high tea with the queen.

 

Sergio wants to cry about the greens, he shouldn't be immune from hearing about it. For better or worse, taunting is a part of actual sports, and golf needs to get over the idea that it should somehow be any different.

 

And seriously...does anyone actually believe this is an american phenomenon? If anything we're perhaps more guilty than the rest of the world of treating golf like the rest of our sports, but as far as global sports as a whole...Americans go easy.

As long as it's not during a shot, guess it's not more than you would be subjected to by your own group

Now, the Ryder cup is different and frankly I think we've been as guilty as the U.S. Supporters for some of the 'banter'.

 

But go to the Open, or a European tour event and you won't hear this shouting cr@p.

 

However, I agree that a bit of a laugh with the players is different from shouting - players should be thick skinned to an extent; as long as it doesn't become personal. I love that U.S. Events have great Gallery holes, beer being drunk and it's fun - more of that in Europe please.

 

What Justin Rose suffered two weeks ago was a low point for me in professional golf - I suspect he'd still have lost but he shouldn't have to suffer that distraction.

I've been to many PGA events from when I was very young to now (30). My dad was head of volunteer security at all the tournaments at Firestone so I've had my fair share of access to players and cool places to watch.

 

That being said - I can't STAND the "mashed potato" crap. A little heckling if a player is being a baby or something fine. But just randomly yelling crap right as a player is making contact is not only stupid but frankly its rude. This is a topic that seriously gets my blood boiling haha.

 

I don't mind things like the stadium par 3 in Phoenix or something but every tournament and every hole it seems like - especially with the popular groups is - is just way to much. I wish they'd throw those dumb ass people out.

Yep, I fully agree with what Westy has said.  You yanks have the patent on loud mouthed obnoxious fans at golf tournaments.  It goes back to Tigers early years and some bone head yelling out "your the man" and "get in the hole" every time he hit the ball or swung a club.  And then of course you then had all the copycat dropkicks who thought "wow that's really cool" and here in Australia any televised tournament was fair game and so it spread like a virus around the world.

 

I remember one of our touring pros who had a purple patch in the early 2000's by the name of Craig Parry (won at Doral 2002) talked about playing at the Masters and couldn't believe how parochial the fans were.  He had the first round lead and during the second round he had fans coughing in his back swing standing on his ball etc and Masters fans are some of the best behaved in the game.  It was one of many reasons that he stopped playing on the PGA tour apparently.

 

I think we have a reasonable expectation given the traditions that the game is rooted in to expect fans of the game to behave in a certain way, lets call it a little more reserved than say football or boxing.  I don't expect anyone to act like they are having high tea with the queen just to act in a civilised manner and to treat the players with respect and how they would like to be treated.  Why people have to get drunk, obnoxious and loud as fans is beyond me and you do have to do any of that to have fun and enjoy yourself.  You can take that from an ex drunk who knows ;)

Oh dear the dreaded multiple post.  Is it possible to delete multiple posts after they are done?  If yes how?

Hey we could make Triple Poster the official jeer of MGS!

 

Let's see alcohol, 30k plus people in the sun for six hours equals.......

 

So long as it doesn't happen during a players routine and swing who cares? For that matter we have guys standing 60 feet apart one with a bat another throwing a ball 100 mph and people are screaming the whole time. Golfers need to forget about what the fans are doing and focus on the task at hand. It's part of the job.

Ping G410 - turned down to11.25 degrees, neutral setting - Fujikura Motore X R flex

Ping G410 5-9 wood

Wilson D7 forged 6-GW -  Mamiya recoil 460 R flex

SCOR 52,60

EVNRoll ER 5

Titleist Pro VIx optic yellow with revkev stamped on them

Currently testing Edison wedges to replace SCORS that are wearing out. Also auditions for the 14th spot in the bag.  Current possibilities are a Ping 26 degree hybrid - duplicates the 9 wood or 5 iron but would be used almost exclusively for chipping or Tour Exotics 3 wood simply because you can carry 14 clubs and I might occasionally hit it in certain unusual wind conditions once every four or five rounds.

I know I started this post, but the problem for me is that its super annoying to hear idiots on TV. I think the golfers should be able to play with noise, but the ridiculous loud one person outburst is ridiculous on every shot for every golfer on the course.....i just hate hearing it on TV because, as we all know, it is "one of those guys" that always do it
