Pro Golfer Battles S#!T Talking Robot In A Shootout

robot-golfer.jpg

This is a video of pro golfer Rory McIlroy doing battle against the Golf Laboratory Computer Controlled Hitting Machine in an accuracy challenge. The robot is a surprisingly good golfer. Plus insulter, which made it pretty obvious the thing was actually getting its lines from somebody hiding in a sand trap with binoculars and a microphone. Robots aren't funny. Except Bender and Crow and Tom Servo. And, okay, any humanoid robot that's trying to walk and falls and has an arm breaks off. Now pick it up and smack him with it!

Hit the jump for the video then go home and try to chip golf balls into your own washing machine.

Thanks to Tomato, hands down one of my favorite salad condiments besides ranch.

  • That was the most enjoyment I've ever got out of golf ever.

    I agree.... we should see more witty robot golf competitions.

    Now I'm imagining HAL9000 as my caddie :

    Fred: Hello, HAL. Do you read me, HAL?
    HAL: Affirmative, Dave. I read you.
    Fred: Give me a iron 5, HAL.
    HAL: I'm sorry, Dave. I'm afraid I can't do that.
    Fred: What's the problem?
    HAL: I think you know what the problem is just as well as I do.
    Fred: What are you talking about, HAL?
    HAL: This game is too important for me to allow you to jeopardize it.
    Fred: I don't know what you're talking about, HAL.
    HAL: I know that you and Frank were planning to disconnect me, and I'm afraid that's something I cannot allow to happen.
    Fred: Where the hell'd you get that idea, HAL?
    HAL: Fred although you took very thorough precautions during your last put against my hearing you, I could see your lips move.
    Fred: Alright, HAL. I'll go in through the sand dune then.
    HAL: Without your sand wedge, Fred, you're going to find that rather difficult.
    Fred: HAL, I won't argue with you anymore. Give me my iron 5.
    HAL: Fred, this conversation can serve no purpose anymore. Goodbye.
