As golf fans around the world ready themselves for The Masters, the conversation surrounding golf’s biggest tournament has officially shifted from debates over whether or not Tiger Woods is “back” to how ridiculous it is for Augusta National to have a list of phrases they’re banning from this year’s event.
Earlier in the week, as the sports world turned it’s attention from Villanova’s National Championship to The Masters, rumors began to emerge that the Augusta National Golf Club was actually planning to ban certain phrases from being spoken by fans at their event.
Just been told security staff at Augusta National have been handed a sheet with a list of sayings that are prohibited. I’m told “dilly dilly” is one of them. Patrons who shout out these phrases will be “removed” immediately. #themasters

Since the beginning of the 2018 golf season, a large part of the discussion has been centered around the question of how spectators should behave while walking the course during a PGA Tour event.
Back in February, Justin Thomas, the second ranked golfer in the world, unilaterally ejected a fan who yelled “get in the bunker” after his swing.

Then, Rory McIlroy, one of the sports’ brightest young stars, escalated the conversation when he complained to the media after the third round of this year’s Arnold Palmer Invitational that a fan heckled him throughout his round.
“There was one guy out there who kept yelling my wife’s name,” McIlroy said. “I was going to go over and have a chat with him, but, yeah, I don’t know, I think it’s gotten a little much, to be honest.”
McIlroy went on to suggest the outright ban of alcohol sales at future golf tournaments in order to improve fans’ behavior.
“I think that they need to limit the alcohol sales on the course, or they need to do something, because every week it seems like guys are complaining about it more,” McIlroy concluded.
And it looks like all the complaining by McIlroy and his friends has had the desired effect.
According to the folks over at Skratch TV, they’ve obtained the holy grail – the actual, official list of phrases banned as this year’s Masters.
If you’re caught daring to utter the phrase “Jimmy Carter eats peanuts” or happen to jokingly use the phrase “Dilly, Dilly” from the Bud Light ad campaign, the uppity elites who run The Masters will eject you, despite the hundreds of dollars you spent to stand in the sun all day watching other people play golf.
You can’t make this stuff up.
This is real life in 2018.
But have no fear, freedom-loving Americans who enjoy having a good time and aren’t walking around with a stick up your butts’, our hero has emerged to fight the tyrannical tendencies of those at August National.

SHOCK PHOTO: NFL Anthem Kneeler Accused of Domestic Violence in Disturbing Instagram Post
A disturbing image has been posted to Instagram accusing an NFL star of domestic violence.
“[LeSean McCoy] is THE DEVIL!!!,” the post says. “YOU ARE AN ANIMAL!!!!!! We didn’t say anything about how you beat your dog ‘Henny’ into kidney failure. Let’s not talk about all the times my best friend had to stop you from VICIOUSLY beating your son for small things like peeing in the bed. We kept quiet about your drug usage … all the ILLEGAL steroids and needles you were using, but we will not keep quiet about this!!!!!! I can’t believe you did this to my best friend!!!!!”
WARNING: THIS IMAGE IS VERY DISTURBING
The poster goes by username miamor_i_adore, and claims that the photo is of her best friend, who is not named.
“The world needs to know what type of animal you really are!!!!!!!,” the post says. “This was just her yesterday on the left and now this morning this is her on the right!!!!”
LeSean McCoy is a star running back for the NFL’s Buffalo Bills. He has denied the allegations.
“For the record, the totally baseless and offensive claims made against me today on social media are completely false,” McCoy wrote on his Instagram. Further more [sic], I have not had any direct contact with any of the people involved for months.”
The Buffalo Bills have not released a statement, but are aware of the allegations according to ESPN.
McCoy was embroiled in the NFL’s kneeling scandal, during which players refused to stand during the National Anthem. He was particularly disrespectful during the ordeal, warming up and doing stretches during the Anthem during one game.
“I was extremely hurt to be honest,” McCoy said of his actions. “Because at first everybody has their own opinion like I talked about. People believe different things. They want to stand up for it or they don’t want to stand up for it. That’s their right. Some of the words the president used just rubbed me the wrong way. It really did. I was upset and I was frustrated. That was the way I wanted to express myself. I took a knee, I started stretching. I was angry. I was hurt. Like I said before after the game, somebody like the president and being our leader of this country for millions and millions and millions of people. They look at America and see the type of words he’s saying about us. It just got to me. It really did. Every week it will be different.”
