PGA Championship: Fed Up McDowell Fires Back at Shouting Fans

July 30, 2016

If you’ve been to a PGA Tour event in person or watched a broadcast on TV, you’ve heard it before. A pro tees off with the cameras rolling surrounded by spectators, and one fan decides to yell something at the top of his lungs as soon as impact is made. The outbursts go from the supportive (GET IN THE HOLE!) to the bizarre (MASHED POTATOES!).

A new fan favorite on Tour is “BABA BOOEY,” and it’s that particular utterance that ticked off Graeme McDowell Friday at the PGA Championship. After the watching his tee shot on the 4th hole land safely on the green, the 2010 U.S. Open champ responded to a Baba-Booey-shouting fan with his own NSFW version of the phrase. You can watch it in the tweet below, but be warned, it contains explicit language.
