Golf: Mobiles to be banned at Ryder Cup
Mobile phones will be banned at the Ryder Cup at the K Club.
Tiger Woods and Sergio Garcia constantly had to back off shots because of people trying to take pictures with cameras built into their mobiles Sunday's final round of the Open.
While most people these days have wised up enough to keep their phones switched off or set to silent out on the course, they are still prepared to try and sneak pictures.
On the only hole which he bogied on Sunday Woods backed off his approach shot to the green complaining about camera phones and then missed the target.
Open Championship director David Hill said they had considered screening people at the entrances to that event and it would happen at the Ryder Cup.
"It is difficult to confiscate things the way they do in the US but possibly we can have them left at the entrance and reclaimed on the way out.
Anyone caught on the course at the Masters in Augusta with a mobile has it instantly confiscated and won't get it back again.
Cameras at major golf events are strictly regulated and must be registered with the authorities but technology in the shape of new camera phones has caught up with the organisers.
