    My golfer JT and The pga tour may want to feel like they are not part of that ‘zoo’ but they are.
    Reminds me of 300.
    300 players and caddies (plus everyone else working the event) defending their right for a bite to eat against the masses.
    Many of those people JT sees are locals, or at least in their second home.
    The Pga tours traveling circus bubble, as small and as safe as they think it may be, is contributing to the zoo-like atmosphere. And all such tours are contributing to increasing risks as they move from town to town.
    It’s just that simple. Fans accept it. Its just not wise to act separate from it. Imo
