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.

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."
