Jeff Overton holes out on No. 8 and roars, “BOOM, BABY,” which will probably turn out to be the catchphrase of the Ryder Cup. And then he celebrates in style with partner Bubba Watson joining in on the fun.

That reaction was some kind of crazy. At least Overton isn’t Mr. Irrelevant anymore.
Yeah right! Boom baby!! Pity how that match ended, isn’t it? Serves them right to learn to keep it closed until it drops.
Get over it Europe, he was celebrating.
The list of guys who, because of this Ryder Cup, I now think are cooler than I did before:
1. Jeff Overton
Wait – was this from the session where the Americans couldnt even win ONE match? Like a 20hcp celebrating his chipin for quadruple LOL
How is a hole out for eagle like a 20 hdcp chipping in for quadruple? Poulter’s bug eyed idiocy was one of the endearing images of Valhalla in 08 and what was the final score? That was the team that all you euros ridiculed on Thursday night and they have been a thorn in your side. Gotta love European arrogance. We get it, you are superior people and superior golfers.
The Italian brothers have reacted similar to that over 4 foot putts and they have a whole 1/2 point to show for all of their gesticulations. Let the guys celebrate something good will ya?
Awesome! That was Happy Gilmore-esque.
Loved it. Overton has been a hugely entertaining part of this Ryder Cup. Never liked him before, but would always love to have him on my team.
In definite agreement with @salander!
So I guess that’s what Hunter meant by “high energy guy.” Bubba’s celebration looks kind of awkward.
BOOM BABY came from Slick Leonard, longtime Indiana Pacer announcer. It started when Reggie Miller kept bombing in three pointers. The Pacers trademarked the phrase http://www.trademarkia.com/boom-baby-77727146.html
I thought he said Boo Baby! As he was playing with Boo.
You’rrre not boooming, you’rrre not boooming, you’rrre not booming anymooooore, you’rrrrrre not boooooming anymoooore
loved the reaction. Loved what Bubba attempted to do. It was comical and I bet even the Euro’s were cracking up. It is a game after all. Guys in their 20’s cuttin up. Love it. Just love it. Great Ryder Cup. Feel bad for the US and good for the Euro’s and the Ryder Cup in general. I live a mile from Muirfield Village in Dublin OH, and I wasn’t there for the Ryder Cup where the Euro’s won for the first time on US soil, but I would like to se a re-match there. Won’t hold my breath, I don’t think they repeat venues.. President’s Cup will be at MV in ’13, but it’s like Ryder Cup Lite. Just sayin…
It’s enormous that you are getting thoughts from this post as well as from our argument made at this time.
