Robin Williams on how golf was invented is the best (Video)


As you have likely heard, actor Robin Williams passed away on Monday after reportedly taking his own life. In addition to being one of the most influential actors of his time, Williams was also one hell of a stand-up comedian. If you’re a sports fan and you haven’t seen his bit about how golf was invented, you are seriously missing out.

The routine became popular during Tiger Woods’ prime, which makes it even more entertaining. Williams went on about how Tiger dominates golf after spitting out some hilarious lines about how golf was invented in Scotland. Watch the clip below (NSFW language):

“Right near the end I’ll put a flat piece with a little flag to give you f—in’ hope. But then I’ll put a pool and a sandbox to f— with your ball again!”

That was easily one of my favorite stand-up routines and yet another reason why Williams will be missed. For some of our favorite Robin Williams movie scenes, click here.

Robin Williams dead after apparent suicide

Robin-WilliamsActor Robin Williams was found dead inside his home in Northern California on Monday. The Marin County Sheriff’s Department confirmed that Williams, 63, has passed away.

While an investigation is still ongoing, authorities believe Williams committed suicide. He was found unconscious and experts suspect he took his own life by way of asphyxia.

Williams checked into rehab last month and was said to be struggling with depression. He battled drug and alcohol addiction in the 1980s but said he had been sober for more than 20 years.

Williams won Golden Globe Awards for Best Actor in “Good Morning, Vietnam, “The Fisher King” and “Mrs. Doubtfire.” He also won an Academy Award for Best Supporting Actor in “Good Will Hunting,” one of my all-time favorite movies.

Sports fans may have enjoyed the 1986 film “The Best of Times,” in which Williams played a banker who obsessed over dropping a crucial pass during a football game while he was in high school.
