I’m not a golf fan, so I had no idea who Rory Mcilroy was before seeing this video, but even if the only time you’ve ever seen a golf ball is at Putt-Putt, it’s still a fun watch. This robot trash talks Rory on the golf course while the pair of them hit balls at washing machines. Apparently, Rory is famous for doing this since he was a kid – not the robot part – the washing machine part.
It’s pretty entertaining to watch this robot crack wise throughout the video. Is this how Golf is nowadays? Hell, I should be playing. I didn’t know you got to pair up with a smartass robot and hit household appliances with balls.
The video comes from The European Tour and is a great way to promote the event. The robot is the Golf Laboratory Computer Controlled Hitting Machine (aka “Geoff”), and he should be a permanent fixture on the golf circuit.
