Yabba-Dabba Do! Yell At US Open


There has been a long tradition of fans yelling from the gallery at golf events after a tee shot.  As a kid, I always remember the chants of “you da man” and “it’s in the hole.”  Over the past couple of years the screams have gotten outrageous with people yelling things like “mashed potatoes” to Tiger Woods and Jim Furyk.  At the 2012 US Open at The Olympic Club in San Francisco, I heard a brand new yell of “yabba-dabba do” after Graeme McDowell‘s tee shot on the 15th.

Instant Reaction:

Yabba-Dabba Do > Mashed Potatoes

Golf is going hipster with The Flintstones reference…and I’m cool with it.
