Going to watch professional golf events is an incredible experience, especially if it is a major championship, and there are many different features of the day that contribute to this.
This year's renewal at Torrey Pines is set to be an extremely popular spot for the famous tournament, but this can cause issues for spectators at the venue.
Yesterday, footage emerged of a massive queue that started from one of the refreshment stands as golf fans waited to get their food and drink for the day.

It is said that there was over a two-hour delay to buy refreshments in some cases at Torrey Pines and for anyone who has been to professional golf events, this can be an annoying inconvenience when you want to watch as much golf as possible.
Many of the world's top players such as Brooks Koepka, Jon Rahm and Rory McIlroy shot under-par on the first day of the US Open, but it was Louis Oosthuizen and Russell Henley who lead after play ended on Thursday on 4-under-par.
Golf fans reacted to the long queues at Torrey Pines:
"Why not just watch the golf?! I can't understand why people can't do that without a beer in hand…" one fan said.
"Yeah that is not good but obviously pandemic related. The PGA had a few like that at Bethpage in 2019. You can guess how well that went over," one fan commented.
"That's not what the founding fathers would have wanted," another fan commented.
"Did they not realize there was a tournament with people going on? What do they have 1 beer stand?" another fan said.
"Super cheap at home and you get to see pretty much every shot on the golf course," one fan said.
