No it isn't. Yelling in his backswing would be yelling in backswing. They aren't even remotely related IMO.
It's no different than he sometimes chooses to putt out and sometimes he marks. He knows if he putts out, the gallery will be moving to the next teeing area and his opponent will have to putt while that movement is going on.
If it's Serg, or somebody else he doesn't care for, or somebody in contention, he'll putt out. If it's Stricker, he'll mark.
Tiger has been playing in front of huge galleries and dealing with things other golfers don't have to deal with since the beginning. Good for him to find an advantage where there is usually a disadvantage.
