Ian Poulter had a rough go of it at the PGA Championship—not as rough as Tiger Woods and Phil Mickelson did, but bad enough that he was well out of contention on Sunday. This has allowed him ample time to air out fans who yell things at golf tournaments, and get a response from Howard Stern.
RT @StevenBarrett05 Whats with all this "Babba Booey" shit people are shouting? >> It makes up for there inadequacy in other areas.— Ian Poulter (@IanJamesPoulter) August 10, 2013
We should be allowed to take 10'000 volt tazers onto the course and tazer ever muppet who shouts out something stupid. I would laugh then.— Ian Poulter (@IanJamesPoulter) August 11, 2013
This baba boo shit & mash potato crap shouting wouldn't happen at Augusta, The Open, nor would it happen at Wimbledon. Tazer the thrushes.— Ian Poulter (@IanJamesPoulter) August 11, 2013
That last one was popular enough for this to happen.

But Twitter is more Poulter's milieu.
RT @HowardStern it's spelled Baba Booey >> How have you only just got more followers than me. I thought you was big time. Hahahaha— Ian Poulter (@IanJamesPoulter) August 11, 2013
Follower check: As of this writing, Poulter is at 1.528 million, and Stern at 1.469. The man with the loud pants is improbably one up on the King Of All Media.
