In the early stages of the first day of the Ryder Cup, the US fans have received a lot of criticism for their behaviour during the Friday foursomes.
As this is an extremely different Ryder Cup due to the Covid-19 pandemic, there are very few European fans at Whistling Straits, so the home crowd will be at their loudest and rowdiest this week.
However, some golf fans have reported bad behaviour from some of the spectators and expressed strong views against them on social media.
It is said that when Paul Casey hit his tee shot on the par-3 3rd hole, a spectator shouted: "get in the water" at his ball. On the contrary, the Englishman almost made a hole-in-one.

He and his partner Viktor Hovland won the hole to go all square with Dustin Johnson and Collin Morikawa.
There have also been shouts heard of "get in the bunker". These are the key reasons why some golf fans have been critical of the hostile American fans in Wisconsin so far.
The Ryder Cup is known to be a tribal event and the only event in the sport where you regularly experience cases of hostility and on occasion, a lack of sportsmanship.

Take a look below at what some golf fans have had to say about some American spectators:
I feel for the US team because I’m fairly sure they likely find these fans equally as irritating #RyderCup— Chazelena (@Chazelena) September 24, 2021
The US golf fans’ idea of sportsmanship coming to the fore early this year. Booing the Europeans and we’ve just had a ‘get in the water’ shout to a shot by Casey. Pathetic but #par for the course. Heard a lot of it at Valhalla #RyderCup— Mike Bealing (@Sillytees) September 24, 2021
The so called US fans are a disgrace - hope Europe smash them #RyderCup— Cathy A (@scots_cat) September 24, 2021
We’re only 40-odd minutes into the Ryder Cup and we’re all royally pissed off with US golf fans.— Ashley Booker (@AshleyLBooker) September 24, 2021
Three days of this will be painful. https://t.co/GuFy75hzET
See or rather hear the US golf fans at the Ryder Cup are showing themselves up in sportsmanship as usual. Gentleman's game unless in US. #RyderCup— Peeved Pete (@PeterTune1) September 24, 2021
