LAMM AT LARGE: A Dangerous Precedent set at 16 in Phoenix

todayFebruary 17, 2022

Background

The 16th hole at the Waste Management Open is good for professional golf, it shows golfers and their fans aren’t as tight collared as many sports fans think. There is nothing wimpy about golf on Phoenix’s 16th, fans scream, cheer, and boo while the players encourage it. Did things go too far when two players aced the hole and everyone was showered with beer and other liquids while cans rained down on the green? The players didn’t seem to mind, at least publicly anyway, but I mind. I don’t think its okay for fans at any sporting event to through objects on the field of play. What if something similar happened at number 17 during the Player’s, another par 3 surrounded by thousands of fans. Would the players and be okay with it then? Thats the danger of the precedent set at Phoenix.

We live in an age when the NBA is loaded with giants who run like gazelles and jump like tigers. Then there's Nikola Jokic. The  Nugget's 6-11, 284-pound center may be the league's most unathletic player. He lopes up and down the court and on a good day may be able […]
