Spectators who came to see Tiger Woods face off against fellow golf pro Phil Mickelson in their much-talked-about televised event “The Match” were treated to some Stern Show shout-outs scrawled amongst the clouds. It appears a professional skywriter spelled out both “Baba Booey” and “Hit ‘em with the Hein” high above the golf course.

“I love it,” Howard remarked of the skywriting stunt on Monday’s Stern Show.

“It’s amazing,” Robin Quivers added after seeing the photos.

While this marks the first time the shout-outs have come in the form of skywriting, Howard’s fans have long yelled out the two Stern Show phrases at golf matches. Tiger even experienced a “Baba Booey” bomb back in March while competing at the 2018 Valspar Championship. Fellow golfer Sergio Garcia experienced his own double dose of Stern Show shout-outs when someone in the crowd yelled out “Baba Booey” and “Hit ‘em with the Hein” at the 2017 Masters.

As great as the display in the sky was, the actual golf tournament ended in dramatic fashion as well – Mickelson ended up beating Woods after 22 holes, winning the $9 million purse as well as an 18-karat-gold championship belt.
