If golf fans are going to troll Bryson DeChambeau moving forward, they're going to have to find a new method.

The PGA Tour has decided to ban its fans from yelling "Brooksie," towards DeChambeau. This has become a controversial nickname because of DeChambeau's rivalry with Brooks Koepka.

PGA Tour commissioner Jay Monahan announced this decision on Tuesday. He said it all comes down to fans being respectful toward the players.

"The barometer that we are all using is the word 'respect,'" Monahan said, via TMZ Sports. "And to me, when you hear 'Brooksie' yelled or you hear any expression yelled, the question is, is that respectful or disrespectful? It has been going on for an extended period of time, and to me, at this point, it's disrespectful. And that's the kind of behavior we're not going to tolerate going forward."

Fans who yell or say "Brooksie" at future PGA Tour events could be removed from the venue.

This decision by the PGA Tour should allow DeChambeau to play with a clear mind this week at the Tour Championship in Atlanta.

DeChambeau is currently third in the FedEx Cup standings because of his incredible performance at the BMW Championship. Unfortunately for DeChambeau, he fell short to Patrick Cantlay in a six-hole playoff.
