VIDEO: Masters Champ Sergio Garcia Gets Double Dose of Stern Show Shout-Outs
Golf pro’s hole-in-one met with a booming “Baba Booey,” then a “Hit ‘em with the Hein”May 12, 2017
2017 Masters champion Sergio Garcia just added another golf honor to his resume: two consecutive Stern Show shout-outs after one of his swings.
The historic moment came as Garcia was teeing off on the iconic 17th hole at TPC Sawgrass during the opening round of the Players Championship. As his club made contact, someone in the crowd can be heard yelling “Baba Booey!” Another fan then lets loose an audible “Hit ’em with the Hein!”
The double dose of superfan screams did Sergio good – he sunk a hole-in-one, becoming only the eighth player in the tournament’s history to ever do so on the 17th.
“I hit a good shot. But it was 3 yards past the pin,” Garcia said afterward. “It could have done anything. It could have stayed there, gone farther. It was nice that it spun back into the hole.”
Check out Sergio’s special Stern Show ace in the video (below).
