Dull short with dry narration is for golfers only...
7 September 2009 | by (U.S.A.) – See all my reviews

Anyone interested in golf may find it worthwhile to watch this dry commentary on the sport from the early '30s, one of the Warner Bros. Vitaphone shorts featured at the time.

The entire short is devoted to a demonstration of how to swing a golf club before attempting to hit the ball. The posture, the steps, the hip movement, the overhead position, the downward thrust--all detailed graphically.

It's a short devoted to good form in golfing, demonstrating that the back swing stores the power while the down swing provides the well directed blow. If the transition from up swing to down swing fascinates you, this is your sports short.
