I find it hard to believe this hasn't come up before and there be some kind of rule about spectators...
Considering the player can only designate one of them as his caddy for the round, I'm not sure the rules can be applied to all of them with respect to punishing the player for their behavior.

Spectator control is something that has to come under the purview of the TD, if there's anything to be done at all. Hard to write official rules to govern non-participants, especially when these non-participants may have no connections at all to the players or even the game. How do you classify park users just there to take a walk or have a picnic or let their kids play who stumble upon a playing group and decide to be a nuisance? What's a courtesy violation going to do about them?

Tell that guy you appreciate his friends being so nice and talking to you. It really helped you to relax and play your best.

Tell them to stf up. Seriously..I don't understand why you simply didn't say "hey.. man...don't feel like talking right now." This happened to ME in my first couple C tier tournaments, except I was the guy gabbing to the other players. Finally..they're like.. "dude..not now." lol...

I've been married a long time. Tuning out someone yacking in my ear is a learned behavior.

While they're are in mid sentence, pull out your earbuds and turn up the volume...

I have been that guy constantly talking but I have stopped when asked, also I have never taunted a player as that could viewed as a dirty legal tactic. Thanks ADD Form of Asperger's.

So the earbuds are to tune yourself out rather than your cardmates?

Yeah, me too.
