USGA Reconsidering No-Cell Stance

Bob Harig with word that the USGA may be rethinking its stance on cell phones but by the sound of it, after a U.S. Women's Open trial this summer, the rule prohibiting spectator phones may change next year.

Davis said the USGA is also concerned about the distractions -- although it's not likely to be an issue this week. Spectators must pass through metal detectors at entrances.

"It's a balance,'' Davis said. "We are worried about that. But we want to have a good spectator experience, too. It seems to me you can probably manage that if your gallery marshals do a good job and you're proactive."
