Bill Murray no longer earns his golf comedian crown: Give it to George Lopez
It would be if it was 1996.
Not now. Not with the dour serious Murray who shows up at golf courses these days. Ever since Bill Murray decided he was a serious actor (Lost In Translation one of most overrated movies of all time, Broken Flowers very underrated) he’s been determined to play a serious golfer as well.
Newsflash Bill: no one’s showing up to see how close you can stick that nine-iron.
That’s what Murray gives you now though. Hilarity? He’s about as jovial as a postal worker during the Christmas rush.
This is why the new king of celebrity golf comedy is George Lopez. To Lopez anyone’s a potential target for a joke and he’s telling them all round long, playing to the gallery. He even made Samuel L. Jackson smile a few times at the Bob Hope Chrysler Classic. That’s no easy task.
For a feature on George Lopez becoming the new clown prince of celebrity golfers, stay tuned to TravelGolf.com. For a dour, solemn round, follow around Bill Murray.
Caddyshack really was several lifetimes ago.
