Is "Baba Booey" good for golf? One of our own says yes

If you haven't heard cries of "Baba Booey" during a golf telecast recently, then you probably haven't been watching a lot of golf.

This seemingly non-sensical phrase, which is actually a reference to radio star Howard Stern's executive producer, Gary Dell'Abate, has been unavoidable during PGA Tour events since last year. That's been apparent to players, spectators, and of course, to The Howard Stern Show, which is relishing its small intrusion into professional golf.

Stern's Howard 100 News recently reached out to Golf Digest's Editorial Development Director Craig Bestrom to get his take on the prevalence of "Baba Booey" on tour. Click below to hear why Bestrom thinks it's not such a bad thing.

Golf Digest has been paying close enough attention to the "Baba Booey" phenomenon that Dell'Abate was recently photographed for a feature in our November issue. More on that photo shoot below.  #iframe:https://w.soundcloud.com/player/?url=https%3A//api.soundcloud.com/tracks/166088711&auto_play=false&hide_related=false&show_comments=true&show_user=true&show_reposts=false&visual=true
