In my opinion, the “mashed potatoes!” chant that made its debut during the Chevron World Challenge last year is one of the best things golf fans have ever come up with. I love watching golf, but I can only take so much golf clapping. That’s why when this guy yelled “mashed potatoes!” after Tiger Woods stroked a tee shot I laughed off-and-on for about three days. Either the same rowdy fan was back at this year’s World Challenge, or there was an impersonator in attendance. Whatever the case, some guy yelled “mashed potatoes!” after Graeme McDowell hit an approach shot over the weekend and it didn’t look like McDowell was impressed. As Devil Ball Golf pointed out, it appears Graeme made an inappropriate gesture after the shot and called the guy a “wanker.” For what it’s worth, McDowell went on to win the World Challenge — just like Tiger did after he was the recipient of the “mashed potatoes!” a year ago.  Can you say good luck charm?
