Every player should tee off to her favorite song at the beginning of the tournament and have it played again when she approaches the 18th green. Major League Baseball teams play music as batters approach the plate and it's great. Fans connect with players for their music and it builds anticipation.

Plus, it would help me on the tee; the forced quiet is nerve-racking, so hearing music will help break the tension.
