Gallery Issues Arise As British Open Allows Cell Phones For The First Time
Published July 20, 2012
GET WITH THE TIMES: Golfer Lee Westwood said that the ban of cell phones at the British Open “was unrealistic in the modern age.” Westwood: “We live in times when the mobile phone is a key tool in business affairs so I think we might deter people from attending if there is a ban. Obviously you don't want them ringing when you are about to take a shot, but in general golf followers tend to be mindful of a player's needs.” Golfer Adam Scott has “also backed the R&A’s decision, but warned that fans will need to use their phones responsibly.” Scott said, “I don't have a problem with it. I just hope all spectators at the Open are considerate towards the players and put them on silent" (CNN.com, 7/19).
