Why no spectators allowed ?July 6, 2022 at 8:49 am #50821Bruce FriendParticipant
Not speaking for WAM staff but I am assuming having a blanket no spectators reduces the chance of liability concerns with insuring the event and as important reduces the chance of cheating as it pertains to the tournament. It is easy to involve a spectator to magically find errant shots and unfortunately it has happened in other type of events that aren’t staffed along with the participants among other ways a non player could be devious. In addition, the courses don’t want to deal with additional carts for non players.
I fully support the no spectators rule.July 6, 2022 at 12:39 pm #50822John MurphyParticipant
I agree. I just need it it writing for the wife. ThanksJuly 6, 2022 at 12:47 pm #50823William Aleshire Jr.Participant
Although I though I did see somewhere that spectators are allowed for the Championship round. 🙂July 6, 2022 at 4:49 pm #50824Rick KimbrellParticipant
For years spectators were allowed. Personally, I never knew of any particular problem with them. They just were not allowed to act as caddies or interfere with play. My wife did it for years and since I have seen a few wives out there. I would be in favor of them going back to allowing them. Might help participation.
