Why is it that when a putt lips in or kind of wobbles in, the golf fans all go: "oooooooooohhhhh" before a little light clapping?
A 3 pointer off the rim twice gets cheers. A puck off the goal post and in gets cheers. A field goal off the uprights and goes through gets cheers. No fans going "oooooooooohhhhh"
Stupid.

I agree with you 100% Golf fans give the "golf clap" on everything now. Good and bad. These golfers getting them don't want to tip their cap or wave for missed putts. They are pissed off they missed those putts. Cheer for the good and the good only people!!

I think it's because its more of a sigh of relief because we have all experienced the lip OUT. But if we are comparing sports, If a free throw circles around the rim and in, I'm letting out the same exact ooooooh as a sigh of relief as well. No defender, just concentration and hoping it goes IN!

I agree with Mully on his assessment. How many times do we make putts and we see it tracking to the hole slowly, and getting that Lip OUT, along with some body language you let out a ooooohhhhh or a few words that you may need to go to church for to ask for forgiveness. LOL

sorry Big Jon and Mulli, you missed the point..... I'm talking fans at the tournament where a pro lips in and instead of cheering, the pro gets a "ooooooh", like "oh, you almost missed it"....... No dipshits, it went IN. Cheer!
