This is the greatest news I’ve heard in a long time. In the world of golf, there’s nothing more annoying than the dude that yells when someone swings the following phrases; “Dilly, Dilly”, “Mashed Potatoes”, “BabaBooey” and “you da man!”.
Now, Augusta National is putting an end to it. According to report, security has been handed a list of phrases that will immediately result in your ejection from the biggest golf tournament of the year. Although the full list wasn’t released, among those leaked was “Dilly, Dilly”. Budweiser weighed in on the news:

Kind of a genius marketing move by Bud Light but I for one, love the ban. It was really getting tiring listening to dudes in white sunglasses wearing their “Saturday’s are for the boys” gear yelling nonsensically being total and complete jackarses. It’s the Masters, shut your mouth, watch some golf and enjoy the beauty that is the greatest course in the world. More tournaments should adopt this policy. It was funny at first, now it’s just annoying. That being said, “get in the hole” should be allowed on every single shot, whether it’s a tee shot on a par 5, or a tee shot on a par 3. “Get in the hole” just feels so right.
