Though Chalmers was being sarcastic here, many fans couldn’t take it lightly. Fans mercilessly trolled him and wrote many mean comments like, ”No one is asking you” or ”Look again, I think that’s just your caddie and swing coach, and perhaps a family member or two. Could be wrong though…” 

Well, fans truly can make or break anyone. But it totally depends on the athlete how to take love or criticism from others. And looking at his personality, we can say Chalmers is the one who takes things lightly.
