Stop screaming on the tee

I don't know about you, but I'm getting extremely tired of listening to supposed golf fans screaming at the top of their lungs during televised golf tournaments -- especially the majors.

I'm not sure exactly when this phenomenon started, but it has grown tiresome. When you watch Tiger Woods, almost every tee shot he hits is followed by some inane nonsense from someone in the gallery. Does getting your voice on television mean that much?

If some of these guys said something that was remotely interesting, it might be acceptable. But the "mashed potatoes" stuff we heard during the PGA Championship last weekend from Rochester was crazy. And the "you're the man" stuff is certainly old and tired, as well.

Let's clean up the golf tournaments. Fans can root without being disrespectful. This is golf. Not football.
