  • Short Summary

    Strange new game is demonstrated by Melbourne Inman - cross between billiards and golf.

  • Description

    A new sport - a combination of billiards and golf. C/U of a man holding a billiards ball close to a strange billiards table with various metal discs which operate as nets for the billiards ball. It is like a miniature golf range for billiards players - very odd. The player takes various shots on the table.

    "It looks easy... but each hole has its own problem" - said Melbourne Inman, the famous player." High angle shot of the table showing it in all its crazy glory. A shot is taken. Inman shows the camera the shot he is aiming to take. He takes the shot but it misses his target. He takes the shot again and this time succeeds. He again shows the camera the shot he intends to take then misses the target. The ball goes in the slot second time around. More tricky shots are taken.
