Of course, this isn’t always the case. Sometimes a player makes a great shot that anyone watching at home can appreciate. Sometimes the crowd in the grandstands at the 18th green gets too excited to keep quiet. And sometimes a guy dressed as a bird interrupts Bob Costas‘ interview with the guy who just won the U.S. Open.
