REVEALED: The Official List of Phrases Banned at The Masters



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.

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.

A post shared by SkratchTV (@skratchtv) on According to multiple reports, anyone who “yells” any of the above phrases will be “removed immediately” from the event.

True story.

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.
