DROPPED CALL: Security personnel at last week's Farmers Insurance Open believe that the PGA Tour's "new acceptance of cell phones on the course will require more fan education if it's going to work." Security officials spent much of last week's tournament "telling spectators to turn off and pocket the devices." Asked whether the Tour's new policy is working, one San Diego police officer said, "No." Mobile phones are "allowed for use only in designated areas, but fans along the ropes at Torrey had their cells out in force, snapping pictures of players as they walked by" (GOLF.com, 2/2).
