MYRTLE BEACH, S.C. (AP) -- Police have removed a noose found hanging on a subdivision sign where an announcer for The Golf Channel used to live.

The announcer, Kelly Tilghman, was suspended for two weeks last month after making her now infamous "lynch" remark on the air during the Golf Channel's broadcast on Jan. 4. In response to Nick Faldo's joking that the young players of the PGA Tour may have to gang up on Tiger Woods to compete with him, she suggested with a laugh that they "lynch him in a back alley."

\nThe noose was found at the entrance to Tilghman Estates, which includes the description, "Home of Kelly Tilghman, Golf Channel."

\nPolice told The (Myrtle Beach) Sun News that they haven't received any threats against Tilghman's relatives in the area.

\nA telephone message left for Myrtle Beach police was not immediately returned Thursday.
