    Oh, I like your clarification of when the golfers yell. I watch too much TV and it always looks like they're yelling it before. I don't play golf, so I really wanted to know. Thanks!

    Ah! Thank you copywriter31. You have added even more to the explanation, and "look ahead" totally makes sense, especially when combined with all the other answers. I'd be the one yelling before each swing. I'm not a very good golfer by any standards.

    Thanks Kaili. It all makes sense after analyzing the word itself. I am so grateful to you and everyone who stepped in to answer this question. It really was a question that made me ponder every time I heard it. I'm grateful for all the input here.

    Thanks, Lupine Rob. Now, I know the reason why they yell, and also why they use that particular word.

    You could just wait for them to move on before hitting...yelling at them is pushy
