'Epic Bad Golf Day'
25 June 2024 60s
Way off course.
by Andrew MacGregor

There are bad rounds of golf and there are bad rounds of golf—this AT&T spot features one of the latter. The unfortunate golfer is not DAVID for once, but Ben Stiller, who starred in 'Happy Gilmore' with Adam Sandler but never hit a ball in anger. Now we know why.

His tee shot bounces off a tree and lands in the car park, but he can still get on the fairway if he concentrates. Alas, the ball ricochets off a golf cart and lands… well, to say it was just out of bounds would be generous. Try "somewhere between heaven and hell".

Not only does the poor son of a gun battle to hit the ball off surfaces other than grass, but also he struggles to remember who he is after a while. Golf can do that to you—it also forces you to ride an ox to reach your next shot in the badlands.

This is all too much for a now ragged and bearded Stiller, so he calls three-time major winner Jordan Speith via satellite. The US telecoms giant may not be able to connect every golfer to Spieth, but they can help those in a tight spot reach out.
