I've only spectated a few top tier tournaments. In fairness they were wooded courses, so the marshals' jobs are a little more difficult, but I didn't find the experience to be particularly enjoyable. The marshals seemed to go way overboard and take their jobs way too seriously. You could barely get in position to see anything before you were getting told to stop moving. And half the time if you were in position to see they would tell you to move back (apparently every pro needs a 50 foot protective bubble to perform). "Give them space! Give them space!". If Tiger woods hits into the crowd he's got a line of people 4 feet from him on either side, surely McBeth can handle someone 20 feet away. If you want to grow spectators, there needs to be more balance between their needs and the players' needs. I've been to PGA tour events and they weren't nearly as bad.
Don't agree. I have spotted and marshaled several events, including tour events and majors. I have also played in several. The only spectators that ever seemed to get spoken to, were those with little common sense and needing supervision. Perhaps you ran across an overzealous volunteer, or perhaps you were the problem?

Some might think they should be able to stand wherever they want, but safety and liability are pretty big factors. Some might think it is only their risk, but a spectator getting injured at an event could easily place the future of the event in jeopardy, perhaps even golf at the venue.

It's a respect thing. When people are throwing you STFU. That said, you can't control background noise and other people so it helps if you can focus and block it out. Sometimes people will apologize for talking after I launch an errant throw, but usually, it was my own fault for throwing poorly not the distraction.

I usually bring this up at some point with a crew... Silence or just have fun and do whatever..?

some say silence please
others don't mind talking and all that...

I'm in the latter... regardless, whatever someone wants is OK with me, but I let folks know that they are free to talk when I am throwing.

Hunting simulators tend to be very quite. One, after all, does not want to spook the game. (Golf, archery, darts... and yes, disc golf.)

Just as there are combat simulators that are individual(MMA), there are hunting simulators (long range shooting) that are team based. MMA is loud whilst long range shooting is very quite.
I've never come across this breakdown of types of sport, I like it, it makes sense. Have you got any further reading on analysis of sport within this framework?

This is synthic knowledge gathered over the last 30 years of reading articles and textbooks on everything from the religious origins of soccer( football for anyone not in the United States) to why children and cats play act hunting to evolutionary psychology of why women prefer mates with strong upper body strength, and lots in between.

I have never read a single article or paper that lays it out in this manner; perhaps I should be the one to write it.


Anyway, here are a few pieces that might whet your appetite.

I like talking while playing casual (which is almost all I play).
