Ryan Palmer plans to toss autographs, with cash, into crowd on 16th hole

January, 29, 2015

SCOTTSDALE, Ariz. -- Since the PGA Tour decided (smartly) to loosen the "we don't want players throwing stuff into the crowd" edict at TPC Scottsdale's 16th hole this week, Ryan Palmer is making a play at becoming the most popular golfer at the event.

At least, it's pretty certain he'll be the most popular guy playing the 16th hole for at least a couple of days.

On Wednesday, he shared his plan during the pro-am.

"I'm putting a few of these in my bag Thursday and Saturday," Palmer slyly whispered as he rolled a $10 bill and wrapped it around a signed golf ball. 

"Tweet it out in the morning to get everyone going. Then you can come watch me do it," he said via text after the photos were taken.

Palmer's tee time Thursday is 2:43 p.m. ET and he starts on the 10th hole, meaning he should get to the 16th right before 3 p.m. local time.

Or, right when most of the bleacher fans need a refill!
