John Deere Classic Fans Find New Rules For Bags : Golf

He said the tournament and the PGA Tour itself have tightened up the rules to improve security. “This all came to a head with Boston,” he said of the 2013 bombing at the Boston Marathon. “This is not just a John Deere Classic policy; it’s the same policy at all 46 tour events.” Fans may carry any bag that is smaller than 6 inches by 6 inches by 6 inches, a clear bag that is smaller than 12 inches by 6 inches by 12 inches, a 1-gallon plastic freezer bag or any diaper bag or medically necessary bag. Lehman said the clear bags areallowed because “we want to be able to see what is in them.” He said the tournament has tried to spread the word through a social media campaign and email blasts topast and current ticket-holders. In addition, security personnel are warning spectators of the rules change at the public parking lots before they boardshuttles to the golf course. Also in the parking lots, security staff are using metal detector wands again this year to check for knives and other prohibited metal objects. “Everybody has a pocket knife on them,” he said. “This gives them a chance to take it back to their car.” The PGA prohibits knives, firearms and weapons of any kind.
