The Robin Williams on golf video clip is widely regarded as stand-up gold. You just have to visit any search engine, type in Robin Williams on golf and you will be bombarded with hundreds of sites hosting the world renowned clip.
I have yet to come across a site that doesn’t praise the clip’s virtues. However, it might not be to everyone's taste as some of the language that Robin uses is not for youngsters or those people that are easily offended.
In essence it is a thoroughly humorous way to look at how the game of golf was created in Scotland and there are numerous side-splitting jokes to guide us through and keep us captivated.
Robin tells us how the game of golf was invented by a drunk Scotsman. He then explains how the ball was hit with a crooked stick into a gopher hole situated hundreds of yards away but to make it more difficult there are obstacles in the way… so that you can lose your ball.
The clip, although comedic, is fact based and it makes you wonder how the game of golf has developed into the sport that it now is. After all, walking around the countryside for hours on end hitting a ball into a small hole doesn't really sound like a lot of fun, does it???
Robin then talks about the attire that golfers wear. The focus is on how golfers have the nerve to dress in such “loud” clothes, the kind that no one else would be seen dead in…
His routine is wound up by encouraging his audience to think about why people like to watch golf and he pokes fun at how commentators try to portray the game as being electrifying as they listen to the grass growing…
If you are not easily offended, please watch and enjoy.
