The thing that makes me laugh is majority of golfers and golf fans are white well to do Anglo saxons.These are usually the upper echelons of our communities and leadership rolls.And here they are making near obscene comments in one of the grandest most revered of all golf spectacles.On here it sounds many are shocked by this behavior.Maybe the true colors are starting to show

 I seriously doubt it was the mayor and city council out there yelling and acting like fools.  These guys were in the white tents acting like fools. :D

It was annoying hearing it on T.V. so I can imaging what the players thought.  I think I even heard one lady yell baba-boey!  My wife asked me why somebody yelled mash potatoes and all I could say was

It's obnoxious. The US Open should treat it like Augusta. Yell something dumb and get tossed. Embarrassing.     Sent from my iPhone using MyGolfSpy

I have no problem with the loud crowds and cheering.  My only problem is all the immature people coming up with different ways to scream "Look at me I need attention!"  I know the days of the golf cla

These people should be getting kicked out. They need staff to throw them out bc the players don't want them there but don't want to be the "bag guy".

Golfers are really some odd strange old birds aren't they ?

Buddy I've felt this way for a VERRRY long time.

 

Grown men cat calling golfers as they walk past them. Stupid nicknames and pet names for these players.

 

The need to get a high five from a golfer as they pass the ropes...I don't know about you but I don't want to be touching strangers.

 

Adults trampling kids to get their eBay flags autographed.

 

Golf fans as a whole are great and respectful but there is a growing population of these folks who cannot seem to just attend an event and be a spectator.

This is simply morons trying to get attention or yell something that they can brag about back home. "Did you hear me yell Mashed Potatoes when DJ hit that drive on 14? Yeah, I'm so cool."

 

The thing is the broadcast could easily edit most of that out. It's not like we are seeing live unedited action on the TV. Fowler does not wait for DJ to hit a drive down the middle before he makes his putt. The announcers may be commenting as they see these shots for the first time, but there is a several second delay between when a player hits a shot, and it shows up on the TV. There has to be in order to keep the action going.

 

Anyone who has ever been to a tournament knows this is not near as fast paced as it looks on TV.  If they quit broadcasting these idiots voices than it would soon stop.

 

"Can't do it and still get the same feel for the game." you say? Bull. They could cover this up with a recorded swoosh sound just like the Farmers Insurance commercial that uses the swoosh to play their little jingle. 

 

The guy in the van that edits and sends the clip to the announcers for broadcast could hit the mute or swoosh button and leave that out. He already has to edit it anyway.

Truly there needs to be some refresh in the video hungry world we live in. Maybe a few drones with laser abilities ready to zap the idiots. I think there is a post somewhere on that subject 🤣. Seriously though those few are creating a negative ripple effect.

Speaking of video hungry... the best players in the world are only a few feet away, and people are looking at them through a smart phone. It's pretty damn sad actually. I wish they'd ban phones again from the events. Everyone looks so ridiculous holding their phones up while Tiger, DJ, Phil... just walked right by.

 

But that video Bro....

I'm originally from New Jersey, albeit that was over 40+ years ago when I left, so I sort of get the New York/Long Island crowds.  That being said, the level of obnoxiousness heard over the Fox broadcast of the US Open was annoying at best, and at worst, insufferable to the point where I wanted to turn it off.  And let's face it, those who excuse away the behavior are part of the problem.  And those that say that the tournament hosts are responsible for ejecting bad behavior are just as culpable honestly.

 

I was watching Beef try and make a putt on Sunday, and some guy literally had his cellphone ring while Beef is lining up his putt.  Not only did this guy take the call and keep talking, but he refused to switch the phone to vibrate, because it rang AGAIN within 30 seconds of the first call.  The crowd did lay into him a little bit, but where's the public shaming of this kind of behavior?  Why aren't 10 people surrounding someone like this and saying something to him?  Why?  Because if we say something to him, all of a sudden, I am the target of his rage, and a fight breaks out.  Because we've lost decency and civility in public, and there is a lawyer on speed dial if anyone gets harmed or has perceived to be harmed by any party, big or small.

 

I went to a practice round of the Masters in 2016, where no cellphones are even allowed on the property.  They had security everywhere you went, and even people sitting below the 6th tee, were told to put their shoes back on if they had taken them off.  One dude, went outside the lines on the 5th fairway and was doing handstands for his GoPro video camera.  The security was on him in like 30 seconds.  Bottom line, the Masters doesn't play games with bad behavior.  If they can police the problem away, then so can the USGA, and the PGA Tour.

 

But excusing the behavior by saying that "it's at every tournament now," is the same as saying you are ok with it, and you are probably one of the morons who screams nonsensical crap on TV just because you are an attention *****.

 

Honestly none of this will make a difference.  If you are an obnoxious New Yorker today, you'll be one tomorrow, and next year, and so on.  It's in your blood, and it's not your fault, because no one in your circle of life has ever told you you were being a jackass, mostly because everyone you know is also a jackass and acts the same way.

I too found the fans at Shinnecock more irritating than usual.  Save for the WM event, which is arguably the genesis for the modern, narcissist, sure hope I can hear myself on replay fan, the overall etiquette of golf fans has deteriorated IMO.  I say this having attended 30+ PGA events over many decades.  The event sponsors can pull the reigns in on this type of behavior, but seem reluctant to do so.  So long as ticket sales are up, merchandise sells, and liquor flows, they are unlikely to mess with revenue.  I also don't think the players as a whole are making too much noise about this - yet.  As the race to be the first "dilly-dilly, "get-in-the-hole", etc. heard, more back and downswings will be interrupted; and that may eventually get more players complaining.

 

In contrast, The Masters is one of the few events where excessive, obnoxious behavior is not tolerated and folks are escorted out.  I've also attended a couple of European Tour events in Hamburg and their fan base are like a funeral service in comparison.  Hopeful the direction of this trend changes, but doubt it will.

I saw someone at the Quicken Loans today standing underneath the misters on her phone out trying to take a photo through binoculars. What are people doing??? Either look through the binocculars or take a picture of the TV at home. It's the same thing.

Lol. I saw that. It appeared she was in the sky boxes along the 17th tee and was trying to get an "up close" picture of Tiger on the 16th green.

 

Looked like one of the guys near her was enjoying her futility in pulling it off.

 

Buy a phone call other a stronger zoom. Ha

Welcome to Long Island.

 

Man I can't wait for the PGA at Bethpage next year or the Ryder Cup at Bethpage for that matter.

"welcome to Long Island" is ridiculous. Yelling Mashed Potatoes, Baba Booey is bullshit no matter where you are. It is so annoying and I frankly just don't understand.... no matter where the tournament is being played. The USGA, PGA should be ashamed that they have let this go this far. The Masters, they don't allow this why should it be acceptable anywhere. If you turn you hat around backwards, even to take a picture the staff at Augusta will tell you to fix it or go home.

I don't think it would take very long for the governing bodies to put people in check. Just a couple tournaments where people are escorted out for being a jerk.

You should be excited about a player making a great shot and the sounds around the course are part of the excitement and add to the experience. However, say something to a player about his wife, mother or kids is absolutely unacceptable and you should be escorted out.

I think a crowd and atmosphere like this is great for the game.Need a spark or kick in the pants to rejuvenate tour golf

nonsense. This is the wrong kind of spark. It is uncivilized, childish and ridiculous
