Episode 2: Rob & Romesh vs Golf

Summary

Rob Beckett shares his newfound love of the sport with Romesh Ranganathan and tries to get to him to become his golfing buddy. They play a round at the home of golf at St Andrews, have a lesson from Olympic champion Justin Rose and then get to tee off at the world famous BMW PGA Championship - live on Sky Sports

Review

How this banterish buddy show usually works is that one of the pair is a fan of something and the other a novice, and the fun derives from the learning process being more two-way than you might expect. This week, Rob Beckett tries to pass on his enthusiasm for golf to his friend.

Romesh Ranganathan and enthusiasm aren’t words that sit together comfortably, so we hope he’s not going to trot out the tired old saying about the game being “a good walk spoiled”.

In the course of their quest, they visit St Andrews, seek tips from English pro Justin Rose and even take part in the PGA Championship – live on Sky Sports. With any luck Romesh won’t be too teed off.

Review

The recent sight of Rob Beckett watching England at Wembley proves he likes his sport. But as many find, “liking” and “being good at” can be worlds apart. And his quest with Romesh Ranganathan to find an Olympic sport they’re comfortable with sees the pair going through the disciplines like a dose of salts.

Their donning of leotards has gymnast Max Whitlock in fits of laughter, while their pommel-horse training on a giant mushroom and a plastic bucket ends with Romesh feeling “like the world’s saddest gnome”. Surely throwing things, with heptathlete Denise Lewis as their trainer, can’t be worse?

It’s hilarious without even trying – and, in the end, surprisingly uplifting.
