Noone seems to mention that unlike other sports there is no home field advantage in golf.
So instead you would be creating an unfair advantage for or against the most popular players on the tour as they would be getting the majority of the cheers.
Unless fans realized this and started making more noise to try to help their favorite player win.
It's a little different than the team sports that they are comparing if you see what I mean.
Frankly I just don't get it; why do these out of shape, drunken males need to yell childish stuff during a golf match? I just don't get! Maybe it's because I'm IN shape and I don't play golf every week but still. Seems a wee bit immature to me. Someone care to explain the joy of yelling stuff during golf?
On a bit of a side note, I've been to just about every kind of sporting event...baseball games, college and professional football and basketball games, hockey, etc. But the most overall fun I've ever had was about 10 years ago at the Tour Championship here in Houston. This was back when I was a HUGE Tiger Woods fan, and I followed him through all 18 holes. Picking a spot in one of the grandstands is not the way to go...too boring. Walking the course with your favorite player, trying to get the best vantage point for each shot, that's the way to do it.
Houston is a nightmare city. I played baseball for 20 yrs, never got heat exhaustion until playing in Houston. Horrible city.
I will never live in Texas again if I can help it. I have to go there for 3 months training so I'm shooting for January.
I've been pretty impressed with the women I've seen in Northern California having lived in California all of my life, but I will say that New York is pretty unbelievable and Arizona totally blew me away.
