Golfing great Bobby Jones consoles W.C. Fields on his poor golf swing and gives him some help. Probably filmed sometime during the 1930s or early 40s. Note that Jones calls Fields by the name of “Bill” as the W stood for William. Warner Oland of Charlie Chan fame looks on.

I have been playing for Several years and went through many lessons. Studying these golf swing secrets “kaha shocking guide” (Google it) allowed me to shot a 75 after 2 buckets. I was able to get more familiar with different golf ideas such as grip, ball position and through swing drills. I was a Thirteen handicap, but it is dropping. This guide is great!

Well, since nobody else is going to mention it, W.C. Fields is an amazing juggler!!!!!!!!!!

Richard Rodriguez says:

This is most likely a scene from "How I Play Golf", a series of short films Bobby Jones made for Warner Bros. during the early 1930's where he teaches golf to to the leading movie stars of the time, including W.C. Fields. Among his friends and colleagues W.C. was known as Bill (for William Claude), and was always called Bill when he appeared on other actors' radio shows.
