Graeme McDowell Gets It

Graeme McDowell clutches the US Open trophy at Pebble Beach

In a Golf Magazine interview with the incredible and ingenious Paul Mahoney, this bit caught my eye.

You clearly love the unique Ryder Cup atmosphere.
There are 50,000 people following four games. The crowd just goes nuts. We need more of it. It’s fantastic. We need to lose a little bit of that “Quiet, please” image. Golf fans know when to be quiet and when to cheer. Golf sometimes forgets that it’s part of the entertainment industry.

Amen. Remind your friends, Graeme!
