CHASKA, Minn. (AP) — The PGA of America is pleading with the raucous, rowdy crowd at Hazeltine National Golf Club to be respectful of all participants heading into the final day of the Ryder Cup.

The PGA issued a statement Sunday saying security staff will remove any fans that “are disruptive in any way, including the use of vulgar or profane language directed at the players.”

Galleries of more than 50,000 have packed the golf course over the first two days of the event and have made their voices heard as they back the Americans in the biennial event.

Europe’s Rory McIlroy has been at the center of much of the heckling, and has responded forcefully after making big shots.

The Americans lead the Europeans 9½ to 6½ heading into singles play, needing five points in the 12 matches to win for the first time since 2008.

    Leave it to Idiots from Minnesota, to destroy the comradery of some wonderful young golfers, that are dear friends. They just happen to come from differnet Continents. They need scr0tum head policing, evidentally. Rory McIlroy, is a great golfer and a complete gentleman. Then he comes to Minnesota, and will remember how disgusting it was for he, and the whole group.

    I was watching and heard the raucous yelling of,”USA, USA!”. Now, The words aren’t the problem. Its the uncalled for screaming at golfers, that are in complete control usually of their manners, and desire intelligent people to view the sport…A sport that represents concentration and Good Sportmanship. How embarrassing to see the picture of the goons above. The one with his face wrapped, is unbelievable. Looks like he needs to be put in a special place.
