Fan Ejected For Shouting "Baba Booey"
By mustang6560 on 8/23/13


According to Ian Poulter (see above), a "donut", or fan as we say here in America, was removed from Liberty National yesterday for shouting "Baba Booey".




As a result of his tweet, the Englishman must've received several negative replies.




Is the PGA Tour starting to crack down on this kind of behavior? If so, you may want to think twice before shouting something at an event as it may result in your ejection.

This article is awesome for two reason: The subject itself (well done, PGA), and Mustang's excellent knowledge and application of English ("must've" instead of "must of". I love Americans)

This is the best news coming out in sports in a while!

They should make him walk around at the front entrance holding a "This what I get for being the dumba$$ who yells stupid crap on the course" sign for a few hours as well.

jpjeffery: I shortened 'must have' to 'must've' -- not 'must of'. It's a valid (enough) contraction to use, especially on a Friday.

Love it. Kick them all out.

I agree with Mustang. I hate "must of" right along with "supposively". Must've is a valid contraction. Supposively is not a word.

1000 points for Ian Poulter and for the security people who booted the offender. The idiot should also be scolded by Dr. Phil on national television while being simultaneously force-fed a peanut butter-and-horseradish sauce sandwich.

That's right JPJ. Nathan works hard all week and come Friday if he wants to let his hair down and whether that means wearing a hawaiian shirt and jeans in to work, or dispensing with the usual formalities and throwing in an apostrophe-s here or there, then who should begrudge the poor boy.

"Must of" is not an actual phrase. "Must've" is a legitimate contraction of "must have".

...and corroborated by an experienced technical writer with full professional proficiency in English. "Must've" is legitimate usage, although "surely" would be shorter and more gooder.

Great idea. Throw at least one idiot out of every professional tournament for yelling, publicize that they were thrown out, and then maybe the problem will start to go away.

Proper use of the written English language is so rare that I now see errors where there are none. I am a compulsive schizophrenic grammar policeman.

Another thing: Poulter calls fans "donuts?" That doesn't exactly sound like a term of endearment. Is it a British term, or is he even more arrogant than I had already been led to believe?

Torleif Sorenson says:
I lived in England for two years and never heard the word "donut" used either as a pejorative or as a term of endearment. It must be post-post-modern British city slang.

Proper grammar is the difference between "Knowing your shit" and "Knowing you're shit"

Dudes, I was agreeing with Mustang's use of must've, not haranging the poor guy!

I'm from, and living in, the country that invented the language (OK, developed might be a better word) but surrounded by (English) people who write "must of", "should of", "would of" all the time and don't seem to understand that it's wrong.

And then they get "their", "they're" and "there" wrong, they write "than" instead of "then", and don't get me started on the general misuse of apostrophes in plurals.

By comparison, the standard of English written by Americans is much higher than way too many of my compatriots.

THE CASE FOR THE DEFENCE RESTS.

PS Mustang, and everyone else, I'm sorry you took my comment the wrong way.
PPS I've heard, and have used, the word donut in a pejorative sense, albeit usually jokingly. Although I'd probably spell it as 'doughnut'.

And all this time I thought must've was a southern thing because we're too lazy to fully annunciate " must have " . Does the same hold true to the words Get em? :-)

bum, the southern term not to be used is ain't.

About bloody time, should be a lot more of it!

As for donut/doughnut, Gordon Ramsey uses that, donkey and ^@*%&$#! quite a bit...but he's a Scot.

Finally! I hope they do this at every tournament. I cannot stand listening to the people yelling their stupid junk after every drive.

It is a narcissistic trait. Calling attention to yourself. These people are typically full of themselves. What they don't realize is how utterly asinine they look. Basically, I would like to see the tickets at these events with a warning on them: ACT LIKE AN IDIOT, BE REMOVED FROM THE COURSE. NO IFS, ANDS OR BUTS!

Heard someone yelling "hump day" on Sunday. Then you could tell the other fans started to give him crap for it.

Unfortunatly no one cold cocked him and replied "saving $15 in 15 minutes makes me happier than punching an idiot at a PGA tour event"

If you punched the guy out, would any one care ? I mean could you get arrested ? or would everybody else there cover for you when the cops came? Like "I don't know officer, I never saw who punched him or where he went" While you stand there with your bloody fist in your pocket.

Can yelling ludicrous things after a player strikes a ball be punishable by ejection? I like the idea, then every Tiger lovin' half-wit who screams, "get in the hole!!!" (even when he's driving the ball from 300+ yds) needs to be ejected, tasered, forced to hold a sign, and punched in the face.
