No cell phones at the u.s. open

I just got the update- they must be checked. no devices at all. I'm going Friday and I am in a hospitality tent and I can't have a phone. Thanks Phil

1. It's the right thing to do

Too bad the behavior of a bunch of stupid people took away your cellphone. I assume you're old enough to remember a world without them. We all got along fine before their invention. And we'll get along fine without them at the U.S. Open.

2. I remember life before cell phones

 

the headache is checking mine in a having to line up to retrieve it. I am catching a plane out at 11:30 friday night. The logistics is a pain. I went to the PGA in Atlanta last year and we had cell phones and nothing happened. I can guarantee you this happened because of figjam

5. It is physically impossible to separate San Franciscans from their cell phones

 

I cordially invite Mr. Mickelson (LDS member and likely Robme megadonor ) to do it himself.

6. I Second That Challenge

You know, i was at Medinah the last time the PGA was there. There was an accident at the intersection right near the course. The impact occurred just as Tiger was swinging his dirver and he hit it 330 right down the middle. Then at the green behind us, a guy ( i forget now who it was) hit a bunker shot to about 2 feet while sirens were blaring. All this happened about 100 yards from the tee box we were behind.

Club players play on courses with train tracks near by, play through horn blasts and the train clickety-clack, cars going by on the edge roads, silly little boys yelling "fore" as they drive by, etc.

Too many of these guys played exclusively on tawny country clubs growing up and don't know how the other 24 million of us learned to play and still play the game.

Seems pretty weak to blame a cellphone for a bad shot.
