Storyline

Joe E. Brown bets Edward G. Robinson dinner that Brown can beat golf master Bobby Jones in a game. Brown hedges the bet by arranging for Jones to hit Brown's drives and Brown to hit Jones's, with Jones to get himself out of any trouble spots that Brown's drives land him in. Jones then demonstrates the proper method for hitting the ball out of roughs, water, weeds, and trees. Written by Jim Beaver <jumblejim@prodigy.net>

Trivia

During filming of this episode, George Marshall and crew were interrupted on five consecutive takes because of gunshot sounds from filming of an Indian raid scene at nearby Paramount Studios. Marshall's men telephoned the studio. They came to a mutual agreement that a whistle would sound from the studio to notify them when it was safe to film. See more »

Thanks, Golf Channel!
25 December 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I learned about this series of Vitaphone shorts while channel surfing... I tuned into the Golf channel and was wondering why they were showing an old B&W film.

I continued watching until I slowly came to realize who I was watching... the great Bobby Jones.

I had seen the film biography of Jones... and have visited a lot of the Jones memorials in Augusta GA. But this was the first time I saw and heard the great man.

Cool!

I plan on getting the DVD version of this series, given the practical instruction (despite the use of archaic terms like "Mashie Niblick" and "Spoon."

This film... and the others in the series, are very highly recommended for all golfers!
