Trivia

The "spoon" golf club is the equivalent to the modern 3-wood. In the mid-20th century and earlier, golf clubs had names instead of numbers. A "baffie" (4-wood), "brassie" (2-wood), and "niblick" (9-iron) are further examples. See more »

How I Play Golf, by Bobby Jones #7: The Spoon (1931)

*** (out of 4)

This seventh entry in the series gets a boost of energy thanks to some major talent in supporting roles including Zelma O'Neal, Warren William and Walter Huston. The story has a wife (O'Neal) going to see a judge (Huston) because her husband (William) is constantly out on the golf course. The judge tells her he's too busy but that changes when he learns that Bobby Jones is on the course giving lessons. Film buffs are certainly going to enjoy this entry thanks in large part to have both Huston and William working together. Being able to see the two tough guys together was certainly a high point in the film and even the Jones educational stuff was pretty entertaining. It appears that both Huston and William are having fun and that's especially true for William who gets to throw a fit and break one of his golf clubs. O'Neal doesn't have much to do but Huston is in fun form. Jones discusses the proper way to use the spoon and also the best times to use it.
