I have noticed a lot more golfers spitting on the course these past few years, even at Augusta! The recent US Open was even worse.
First, I think it is disgusting and unprofessional for PGA tour pros to do that. Worst of all, why do some players spit on the putting green? Is spitting now an acceptable part of golf etiquette among pros?
I also see players damaging the tee box and putting green after bad shots. There should be a stroke penalty for that. If you must hack up something after a bad shot, hack at the deep rough. I have never seen Nicklaus and Watson behave like that and it’s shocking to see so many talented young guys on tour be so unprofessional
