Tiger Woods Heckling

Tiger Woods plans to play in The Masters.
Tiger Woods is finally returning to the world of professional golf.  He'll play The Masters this week.  For the first time since the final round of the 2009 Australian Masters in November, Tiger Woods will play in front of a live audience.  How will that audience now respond to Woods, after months of scandal and bad press?

Woods is hoping that of all professional events, The Masters is the least likely to provoke heckling.  The tournaments' founder, Bob Jones, wrote about audience etiquette 1967.  Will his words still ring true even after the Tiger Woods' scandal?
In golf, customs of etiquette and decorum are just as important as rules governing play.  It is appropriate for spectators to applaud successful strokes in proportion to difficulty but excessive demonstrations by a player or his partisans are not proper because of the possible effects on other players.
