Its sad to see, but watching the Open over the weekend I think I have seen the beginning of the dumbing down of golf. I lost count of how many times I heard people roaring 'GET IN THE HOLE !!' as soon as the ball left the club. It would not have been so bad except that at times the player wasn't even aiming for the hole!! One very funny example, and which the roaring idiots must have found very embarassing, was Monty on either the 17th or 18th (can't remember). He had a lot of bad ground and a bunker between himself and the pin, so he decided to play a safe shot way off to one side so that he could get a good line for the final putt. Now bear in mind that he was deliberately aiming about 90degrees AWAY from the direction of the hole, but still we had the roars !! Numbskulls!!
