• Short Summary

    Golfers tee off in Los Angeles - includes a funny incident with Joe Kirkwood.

  • Description

    Full Title reads: "Los Angeles - "Cut it out!" - said Joe Kirkwood to our Commentator - watch how he did it - in final Golf Stars' Open Tournament, won by MacDonald Smith."

    Los Angeles, California, United States of America.

    A group of male golfers are gathered at the tee. A small crowd is gathered behind them to watch. One of the players steps up to the tee, places his ball, and hits a good drive. (The commentator is naming the golfers but the sound is too indistinct on the steenbeck to make them out).

    Joe Kirkwood moves up to strike his ball. The commentator says he expects something special - "Bunker to Bunker". Kirkwood starts fooling around, waggling his legs and wiping his nose. He then strikes the ball. It flies off the tee in completely wrong direction - in fact in the direction of the cameraman. (Quite funny sequence)
