Just a note about a non story: This last weekend, the Wyndham Championship permitted fans to carry their cell phones on the course and as far as I can tell, nothing happened. I’ve been looking on the interwebs for a story about a golfer who lost the tournament because a phone went off at the wrong time. Or even about a golfer who felt it cost him second … or third.
Perhaps my Google-Fu has failed me, but I’m coming up short. Lesson for the PGA Tour: keep up with the times. There’s no need to annoy spectators—or potential spectators—by banning the devices which have for many become a permanent appendage.
