Golf is a game played ideally in total silence - unless you're Bubba Watson or Ian Poulter and can handle a baying, enthusiastic crowd at the start of a Ryder Cup match.
But that tournament is unique in its atmosphere and the 'Golf Etiquette Police' would no doubt take a dim view of that behaviour in the monthly medal.
Golfers are encouraged not to make a sound - including talking, singing, whistling or rattling loose change in their pocket - when a player is about to hit.
However, between shots sociable conversation and banter is what helps makes the game so popular.
Oh, and keep that mobile phone turned off at all times.
