I don’t do a lot of “reporting” of PGA Tour or professional golf here, the web is overflowing with people regurgitating that information. Perhaps the most useless reporting is the photos of the winner’s bag. Great! Pictures of hand-made tour-only clubs any regular golfer can’t get, and if they could they would not be able to hit them…. That’s a
post rant for another day though.
After a small “procedure” I had on Friday of this past weekend, I was couch bound as per doctor’s orders so I finally watched a full broadcast of professional golf. I watched the final round of the Arnold Palmer Invitational at Bay Hill. The FIRST thing I heard on the broadcast thankfully was not a discussion about Tiger Woods. Perhaps worse than that, it was some idiot, a lady this time, yelling at the top of her lungs “mashed potatoes” just as Adam Scott hit a tee shot.
Really? Are people STILL yelling these stupid things like “you da man,” and “get in the hole” (on 475 yard par-4’s of course), and “mashed potatoes?” REALLY?
STOP. PLEASE. It is no longer funny. In fact, it is dumb. Those of you who are yelling these boneheaded things are showing the millions of viewers who the dumbest person in the gallery is, YOU. Show some class. Shut up.
Assuming these boneheads don’t shut up, WHEN will the PGA Tour grow some golf balls and start kicking these idiots out of the event?
