It takes no more concentration to ignore a crowd than one person. Just ask my spouse!

Agree, the fans should respect the etiquette of the game.

When I play golf, for some reason noise does not bother me at all. However, movement is another thing. I tend to see anything that moves, bugs flying by, shadows when the sun is low, someone walking, etc... and that messes up the swing big time. Obviously the noise bothers Tiger.

When that incident occured, the shot he played, and where the ball finished, was one of his best!

Looks like Tiger is not going to be the goose that laid the golden egg anymore. Need the gimmick. Sure beats watching grass grow while those commentators say total nonsensical BS like that was a courageous shot, reminds us of Tiger in his prime.
I agree. BABA BOOEY !. HIT EM WITH THE HINE !

Thumbs down Whats to Blame

I served as a Marshall for many years at the Buick Open in Westchester County and also at the US Open when it was held at Wingfoot. The source of much of the shouting and bad behavior is the beer and liquor that is served in the hospitality tents and in the Club House to Club House ticket holders. One spectator was so loud and screaming that the well known pro player went over to him off the 18th tee and was going to hit him. We stopped him along with the other pro playing with him. It was the booze that was driving it. The 2 spectators involved were thrown off the course by the NY State Trooper.

I read that one of Earl's father son training sessions included Earl throwing balled up sox at Tiger while he was swinging. This helped Tiger to focus. I can't find the video but there is one out there of Tiger stopping a club moments be fore it makes impact so he can reload.

Such a gentleman's game. Did this "pro" also throw his club after an errant shot that was surely the blame of an arrogant spectator ?

They got off easy. In Philly, at Vet Stadium the officers don't take any **** and bring you to a judge located in Vet Stadium where you are tried and sentenced right then and there.
