So, you think you should be able to just walk up to Tiger Woods and Ernie Els while they are working and ask them newbie questions like "what's a birdie?", and they should drop what they're doing and attend to your every desire and whim?

Sure baby, anything to please you.


No but nor do I think Tiger Woods or Ernie Els or anyone else for that matter has a right to swear, curse or do anything else inconsiderate just because some naive person might have done something that was inappropriate.

There a professional way to deal with such situations and there is a jerky way to deal with such situations. IMO you almost always better off taking the high road vs the low road.
