Golf unamerican without national anthem

Sittin' on the JetBlue heading home from Orlando, looking for something to watch on TV, I come across the Gatorade Duel at Daytona, which must be NASCAR's version of the Par-3 Contest the day before the start of the Masters.

Anyway, some dude is just killing the Star Spangled Banner right before all these guys get in their cars and drive like we do in the northeast. I'm telling you, every driver has his right hand on his heart. Half the crowd is singing along, and I'm thinking....

Golf needs to figure out a way to work Francis Scott Key into the mix. It ain't American sport if it doesn't start with the national anthem.
