‘You Da Man’

Posted on Sunday 15 June 2008

…is mercifully gone from the lexicon of inebriated on-course golf spectators (not to be confused with fans). But, based on what I heard while watching the spectacular US Open at Torrey Pines for the past two days, that trite belligerence has been replaced by a bellowed ‘get in the hole’ coupled with the obnoxious-to-the-point-of-distraction ‘three whistle’ after nearly every televised putt. Almost makes me wish for the rainbow-wigged proselytizer holding up his ‘John 3:16’ poster.

C’mon, people. Every player wants every putt to go in. You’re hardly showing your prescience by shouting it every time a pro hits it with a flat stick. And as for the ‘three whistle’? What, you got no roller derby in your town? Really. I’ve enjoyed every visit to San Diego. You can do better.

OTOH, maybe the San Diegans were just trying to set the bar for next year’s Open attendees.
