"In the hole!!" American Idiots
I enjoyed watching Rory and Lee playing the final round of the BMW PGA at Crooked Stick Golf Club last night on Sky. However can't abide these american tw*ts shouting "IN THE HOLE!!" all the time!
Don't they realise that they just make themselves and their countrymen appear total morons to the rest of the world watching?
Perhaps if Barack Obama gets re-elected he could intorduce the death penalty for these people!

They shout it to get heard on TV so they can show off to their mates. That is why it has moved on from 'in the hole' to more weird stuff - so they stand out more. Perhaps if they practised their golf more they could be on TV for a slightly more deserving reason.
T'other half also thinks it is down to very cheap tickets to watch these events. You get lots of people there just to drink beer and try and get heard on telly rather than proper golf fans. If they made the tickets the same price as at The Open half the people wouldn't go - just the ones who thought the golf was worth it.
Do they shout 'in the hole' at Augusta? Cos that is pricy and very restricted.

I heard some well known golf shouts watching last night: "Baloney Pizza" "Mashed Potato" "Woah Momma"
One of these days, a golfer will have enough and 'mishit' a ball...

I kind it funny, Tiger standing on the tee of a 600yrd par 5 and the crowd shout 'In the Hole', IMO just shows how knowledgeable the yanks are.
Me, I shout it once in a blue moon when my mate stands on the par 3 first, always get a little chuckle

It's daft as a brush, annoying for the pro's, but watching at home it's hilarious.

re-"Baloney Pizza" "Mashed Potato" "Woah Momma"
i actually heard someone with a west country accent shout "roast potatoes" whilst at the open this year everyone looked around in disgust but nothing was done maybe the stewards should be removing these idiots then the tv comentators could report this and maybe try to discourage the morons in future.
