Fans who yell “Brooksie!” at tournaments may now be shown the exit.
PGA Tour commissioner Jay Monahan said Tuesday at East Lake that harassing or disruptive behavior and comments would no longer be tolerated at tournaments and could lead to expulsion from events, per the Tour’s updated fan conduct policy.
“By coming to a PGA Tour event, you’re expected to contribute to a welcoming and safe environment by refraining from and reporting any unsafe, disruptive or harassing behavior,” Monahan said in his opening remarks ahead of the season-ending Tour Championship. “Comments or gestures that undermine the inclusive and welcoming nature of the game will not be tolerated, nor will any harassment of players, caddies, volunteers, officials, staff or other spectators.
“Fans who breach our code of conduct are subject to expulsion from the tournament and loss of their credential or ticket.”Golf Channel
The Brooks and Bryson rivalry has been the best thing in golf in recent memory. Anybody who covers golf is always saying that the sport needs something to rejuvenate the game. With Tiger Woods no longer dominating, the sport is without a face. Golf had their new thing with a classic rivalry between Brooks and Blake. Everybody loves a rivalry we have Eagles vs. Cowboys, Red Sox vs. Yankees, Packers vs. Bears, Lakers vs. Celtics, and Michigan vs. Ohio State. You can plant your flag on one side and argue with random people on Twitter why who you root for is better. Now the PGA Tour is taking away this rivalry.
People call the NFL the no-fun league after they took away taunting, which is just as bad. Imagine you’re drunk with your buddies. You see Bryson lining up his tee shot. You don’t yell in his backswing because that’s an asshole move, but after the ball has left the tee, you scream, “nice shot, Brooksie” you and your buddies have a good laugh and go on with your day. Now you have some asshole guard or 80-year-old volunteer who’s there to guard Bryson’s feelings, grabs you, and tells you; you need to leave. Your buzz is now killed as you’re being escorted off the golf course.
Did the PGA Commisner think that there would be Malice In A Palace situation if he didn’t get fans to stop yelling Brooksie? I mean, we all know that Bryson has steroid rage; even Brooks knows.
It comes down to that Brooks is the jock and Bryson is the nerd, and unlike the nerd who will take his beatings, Bryson is a baby back bitch. He needs to cry to the principal and get his way because he can’t handle it. This will only hurt his own reputation while Brooks keeps racking up majors.
