Baba f’in Booey: Graeme McDowell reacts to PGA Championship hecklers


SHARE THIS STORY

You'll hear it all weekend long at Baltusrol: lots of PGA Championship fans, New Jersey natives mainly, yelling random things at their favorite golfers before, after and sometimes during a shot. It's a nuisance. It's not funny. But lubed up and rowdy fans are kinda hard to shut up, particularly here, where it's a bit of a spectator sport.

One such fan yelled after Graeme McDowell hit his tee shot into the par-3 fourth on the Lower Course in Friday's second round. The fan shouted "Baba Booey!" as though they were a Howard Stern-inspired prank caller messing with a golfer's timing.

Fortunately, McDowell's shot was fine, but he wasn't happy with the fan's obnoxiousness. A hot mic caught McDowell's reaction as he walked back to put his club in his bag.

He scowled, "Baba fucking Booey."

Damn right, G-Mac.

Baba Booey Guy, go home. You're drunk. No, really.
