In show of support, Bradley instagrams a picture of his new "bababooey" wedge

By Luke Kerr-Dineen

The eternal question: Is it OK for players to yell "Bababooey" after pros hit their shots? General opinion, for now at least, appears divided.
Ian Poulter has been the most outspoken in the weeks and days following the PGA Championship, when the issue was thrust into the spotlight, tweeting that he wants to Taser the shouters.

That opinion (the not liking it part, not the Taser part) has been backed by some professionals, but not as many as you might think.
In his article from the Barclays last week, Golf Digest's Derek Evers reported that a number of pros, Jason Dufner, Jordan Spieth, and Nick Watney among them, said the shouting doesn't bother them. Keegan Bradley was another quoted, saying: "I love it. You're trying to make golf more fun, let's not take it away from the fans."

And Bradley's not backing down, instagramming a picture of his new Cleveland wedge Thursday morning with the word "bababooey" stamped on it.
