    What is it with the yanks and shouting random crap during golf tournaments? I was watching the us open yesterday and someone shouted MASHED POTATOES after Furkyk hit a shot, apparently they do this often.

    That's stupid. Also, if you were that way inclined, surely the best time would be mid-swing?

    They don't want to put off the golfer, they just want to be heard and make people laugh after the shots been made.

    Worked with me, funny ****.

    They do say that, and I can't help but usually agree with them. However, I know some Americans find it funny, unlike yelling Mashed Potatoes
