Randall's Rant: Hey, loudmouth, you're not funny
Dear misguided soul:
You know who you are.
You’re “that guy.”
You’re that guy following around Rory McIloy and yelling “Erica” at the Arnold Palmer Invitational.
You’re that guy telling Justin Thomas you hope he hits it in the water at the Honda Classic.
Amusing to you, maybe, but as funny as a fart in an elevator to the rest of us.
What’s a sport to do?
McIlroy suggested limiting liquor sales at tournaments, restricting alcohol consumption to beer.
Imagine the outrage if that happened in an NFL game.
So, really, what is golf to do?
So if you’re “that guy,” welcome to our lawn, just don’t leave your lunch on it, please.
