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

September 06, 2014

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.
