Legendary comedian and golf nut Ronnie Corbett dies aged 85

R.I.P. to a true GolfPunk

Legendary comedian and golf nut Ronnie Corbett has sadly passed away today aged, 85.

Ronnie with European Ryder Cup star Peter Baker at the Benson & Hedges 2001

One of Ronnie's greatest jokes:

A man has been stranded on a deserted island for years when, one day, a beautiful woman in a wetsuit arrives on a jet ski. She introduces herself then asks:

"When is the last time you smoked?"

"About 5 years ago" he replies.

She pulls out a cigar, hands it over and he smokes it.

"When is the last time you drank?" She asks.

"About the same" he replies.

So she pulls out a bottle of whiskey and he downs it.

Then she starts to unzip her wetsuit and asks:

"When was the last time you got to play around?"

The man looks at her in amazement and says:

"Dear Lord, don't tell me you've got a set of golf clubs in there as well!"


Here's a piece of great action Ronnie gave us at the Bob Hope Classic back in the day.



This is brilliant!! Must watch this.
