Transcript

00:00
So I always had this stigma about golf
00:01
as like super uppity, like people play with their collar up.
00:04
(laughter)
00:06
[Mark] Who does that?
00:07
[Kunal] Exactly.
00:07
This is Celebrities in Golf Carts.
00:10
How we doing?
00:11
Good.
00:12
Great to see you.
00:13
Yeah, I'm very excited.
00:14
I think I play better when something's on the line.
00:16
Well then let's bet $1,000 on this hole.
00:18
Let's bet 1,000 rupees, two dollars.
00:26
Yeah!
00:27
There you go.
00:28
That's the big bang theory right there.
00:29
How many times you gonna make that joke today?
00:32
[Mark] You've only been playing for two and a half years.
00:33
[Kunal] I didn't grow up in a golfing family.
00:35
My friends would come to the Par 3 with me,
00:36
it's fun,
00:37
hit a few shots.
00:38
And you know what kept me coming back?
00:40
I couldn't do it.
00:41
[Mark] How'd it go?
00:42
It's in the tree.
00:43
I think that I have pretty decent hand eye coordination.
00:45
I played sports for a long time.
00:48
I couldn't do it
00:49
except I could do it once
00:51
or I could do it for an hour
00:52
or I could do it like one day.
00:53
Get through.
00:55
And then the next day it's gone.
00:56
I have a good feeling about this shot.
00:59
Oh.
01:00
So it's almost like it's the beautiful girl
01:02
that you're always chasing your whole life
01:04
and once in awhile she'll give you a kiss
01:06
or show you some side boob or something.
01:08
You know what I mean?
01:09
[Mark] Big Bang Theory, who's the funny one
01:11
if we asked all of you guys?
01:13
Simon.
01:13
Simon Helberg who plays Wolowitz.
01:15
[Mark] Simon?
01:16
[Kunal] Not even a question.
01:17
[Mark] Really?
01:18
Oh not even a doubt.
01:19
I think I'm second.
01:21
See 'cause the world probably thinks it's Jim.
01:24
Everyone's funny but all that stuff's written for us,
01:26
you know?
01:26
[Mark] Are you saying
01:27
that you could jut throw anyone in there?
01:28
Yeah, that's what I'm saying.
01:31
Just like how Nick Young could take over for Kobe.
01:33
I get it.
01:34
I just compared myself to Kobe Bryant.
01:36
[Mark] Yes you did.
01:38
Oh my god.
01:39
[Mark] So how does someone reel in Miss India?
01:43
She's five ten, she was wearing five inch heels.
01:45
She was six three, I'm five eight
01:47
and I said sit down and I'll buy you a drink
01:50
and that was it.
01:51
She'd never seen the show.
01:52
I used it too.
01:53
I was like I'm an actor on a show called Big Bang Theory.
01:56
She's like, Is that a porno?
01:56
I was like, No, no, no.
01:59
I'm glad we hit that today.
02:00
No, we did.
02:01
You've forgotten, you owe me--
02:02
2,000 rupees.
02:02
[Kunal] Yeah.
02:05
[Mark] Our games are compatible.
02:07
I think so.
02:08
We both are pretty bad.
02:11
Exactly.
02:12
What I have here,
02:12
this is a left handed driver.
02:15
You're right handed,
02:16
I'm right handed,
02:17
Okay and it's one shot?
02:19
[Mark] One shot.
02:20
Oh god.
02:21
And you're the guest,
02:22
so you gotta go first.
02:28
Alright.
02:29
Sorry, ladies.
02:32
If you miss it you lose,
02:33
you realize that.
02:35
Oh please, just please miss the ball.
02:40
Oh yeah.
02:43
[Kunal] You beat me by like three yards.
02:45
Congratulations, man.
02:48
That's gotta be a special moment for you.
02:51
[Kunal] Golf is such a good metaphor for life.
02:53
Everyone says that and I'm like, How?
02:55
If your life is miserable,
02:56
it's a good metaphor for your life.
