Ian Poulter not a fan of Baba Booey chant, hears from Howard Stern
Fans attending the PGA Championship at Oak Hill this weekend were going a little overboard on the chants off the tee. The trend of yelling “get in the hole!” after a tee shot has been going on for a while, and the “mashed potatoes!” chant is a little newer. In addition to both of these chants, some fans were yelling “The Howard Stern Show” calling card “Baba Booey,” which is commonly used during crank calls.
It sounds like Englishman Ian Poulter is not familiar with the Stern show and not a fan of the “Baba Booey” call.
Hey Poulter, U mad bro? Poulter sent that tweet after shooting an even par 70 for the second time this week. He’s tied for 61st at 8-over par.
The best part was seeing Poulter’s tweet make it back to Stern, who offered a response.
Maybe that will teach Poulter not to complain. Or better yet, if he wants to protest, he should pull a Graeme McDowell and do something like this.
