PGA Tour Pro Issues the Most Hilarious Threat to Golf Fans

Published 09/01/2021, 9:30 AM EDT


The PGA Tour recently imposed a new rule which shocked many. Fans have always been a part of the game, but due to the increased heckling, the tour commissioner has banned patrons from shouting ‘Brooksie’ at Bryson DeChambeau. The same goes for other golfers as well – fans can’t refer to a player with a name other than what’s originally his.

This indeed came as a shocker. Over the years, golf has always been a sport where fans had the freedom to express their views during tournaments. However, sometimes it can get ugly when some of them cross the line and abuse the golfers they dislike. 

Bryson DeChambeau has been a recent victim of that. Wherever he goes, fans tend to mock him using Brooks Koepka’s name. After a point, the PGA Tour decided to intervene, and that’s what they did Tuesday evening.

“We’re gonna have some problems.” Hahn made everyone crack up with this statement. The 39-year-old has often been subject to getting confused with other golfers on the course. He’s been experiencing it for so many years and finally decided to open up about it. 

Hahn now wants fans to call him by his name during tournaments. He’s played well and has sustained on the tour for so many years and has earned that respect. It is amazing that James Hahn saw the lighter side of this ruling and decided to make a hilarious threat to golf fans. 

On the other hand, was the PGA Tour right to bring in this rule? Over the years, so many golfers have endured heckling at the hands of patrons. However, they learned to shut the outside noise and play.
