The play by play announcers actually follow the golfers around. They are relatively close. Any yelling would distract the golfer. Also, i'm sure it's just a style thing too.

Because they crank the volume wayyy up so that you can hear the thwack-pfffft! of the sand wedge swing in the trap, the click of the putter against the ball on the green and the sound of the ball plopping in the cup.
Golf is not the kind of sport that involves shouting incoherently in a roid rage, no matter how great your last shot was. Well, I've seen some people play that way, but they usually get so frustrated that their hockey swing keeps hitting the ball into the pond over, and over again -> they quit after the 3rd hole because they've snapped half of the clubs in their bag over their knee.

Golf is about calmness, precision, consistency, tempo, and pure control by taking in all the information you can gather using all your senses. Yes, you can even smell a good shot before it happens.

But it is somewhat silly that the commentators are usually sitting in the network studio, which could be 2 miles or 2000 miles away, but by whispering you may be fooled into thinking that these guys are right there next to the golfer, and hence it makes the viewer feel that much closer to the action.
