Illinois: Dangerous, even on the golf course

Ok, I know a few of you are golfers, most are not, but while watching the John Deere tournament, located in Silvis, IL, this is the first time Sweetie and I can remember seeing the golfers being escorted by armed police any time they are among the crowd. I may be mistaken, but as best I can remember I have never seen such a thing. Has the Chicago lawlessness infected the entire state?

I have never seen that before Gator...

I wonder why that they would decide to do that unless there was a threat or something else..

Gonna hit the web and see if I can find out why that happened..

I have seen state police escorting the players at a PGA tournament before, but I can't remember which ones. Silvis, BTW, is near the Quad Cities, and not near Chicago.

A few years ago Tiger Woods was threatened and had protection while playing.
No telling what has gone on in the background that may have caused this.

Remember the guy that threatened Shooter McGavin in Happy Gilmore? Can't be him, he died recently.

Talking Tee Hee!!!

Let's keep in mind that one "shoots" golf!! Maybe that wasn't a police officer at all, maybe it was a caddy!!!!

Attached below you will find a video of President Obama shooting a round of golf!!!
