Dorf should stick to golf
22 February 2002 | by (Plymouth, MN, USA) – See all my reviews

Dorf is funny in golf (at least in the two golf videos he's done), but he really is not funny in the other sports.

Perhaps, this is because golf has a stigma that bad golfers can still play the game (even with a horrendous handicap) and that golfers with nearly do anything to improve their game.

Well, Dorf does it all, he has gadgets and gismos, he has a stupid catty, that actually disproves his game (so much so that he was replaced for the other video), and he has a bomb shell vixen whom helps (or hinders his presentation).

Dorf should definitely stick to golf because his antics are funny on the linxs, but rather dry on either the diamond, the water, or in other sports.
