Speaking only for myself, I am disgusted by the behavior of some American fans in the stands by the first tee this morning. Cheering when one International player's tee shot went in the water and yelling for another tee shot to, "get in the water", is totally uncalled for and unforgivable. Those fans should be forcibly removed from the course with no refund for whatever their tickets cost.

Every time there is an event in the NY or NJ area, (the U.S. Open at Bethpage Black comes to mind), the fans get out of hand.

This is bad for the President's Cup in particular and for golf in general.

I have no sympathy for these fans if tournament authorities deal with them severely.

Nike have pulled out of the equipment market so I don't think they'll be interested in Event Security :)

Edit - Should have said International player, not Euro... Corrected above.

Yesterdays singles play was what I'd hoped for all week, 6 wins per side. I love these events like the Ryder, Presidents and Solheim cups. I always want to see them close.

I'm happy to see Mark Leishman's wife spoke up. Good for her.
In RC it was Danny Willett's brother, now Leishman's wife. Maybe one day the message will get through and something is done about it. :)
