There’s a buzz around this year’s Masters. Tiger Woods is back. “This might be the wildest year in Masters history,” CBS Sports reports. But the bigger news out of Augusta National this week is this: A popular, stupid beer catchphrase has been banned.
Shout “dilly dilly” at the Masters and you’ll hear “doobie doobie doo” as a security guard sneaks up to eject you. That’s according to Bryce Ritchie, an editor at golf magazine Bunkered.
Just been told security staff at Augusta National have been handed a sheet with a list of sayings that are prohibited. I'm told "dilly dilly" is one of them. Patrons who shout out these phrases will be "removed" immediately. #themasters

Although Budweiser’s “dilly dilly” ad primarily ran during football games last season, people have taken to yelling it at golf tournaments this year.
Watching golf and after Mickelson teed off, someone yelled “dilly, dilly” ?

Now Bud Light has heard of the reported ban and released a statement saying it will “make 1,000 Dilly Dilly shirts that shall be delivered to Georgia in time for the festivities.”
