The staff at Augusta National Golf Club, has reportedly banned use of the phrase “Dilly Dilly,” during the 2018 Masters Tournament.
According to Bunkered.co.uk, any patron at this year’s Masters Tournament who dares utter the phrase made famous by medieval Bud Light drinkers, will be escorted off the premises:
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

One supposes removal from Augusta is preferable to banishment to the pit of misery, a fate suffered by those who dared not bring Bud Light to the king’s court. Yet, clearly, Augusta has drawn a definitive line in the sand when it comes to what they will and will not allow at the Masters.
Will Bud Light retaliate with an ad campaign that bans use of the word, Masters? It’s short notice, but that would be something.
