I'm not watching the show, I did not like the last season at all, but heard about the scene and hey, it's already on YouTube. He makes what looks like two albatrosses in a row with a not great looking swing (that's fine, can't expect all actors to be athletic). Dunno what course this is. Western US somewhere?

Kill slow play. Allow walking. Reduce ineffective golf instruction. Use environmentally friendly course maintenance.

Looks like 3 albatrosses in a row. 

The guy should have suspected something was up when he made the second one.

I've forgotten much of the show, I know it's a simulation and robots, but it's not a simulation of the Matrix type, the fake world is manifested physically right? Even a robot with a perfect swing and super speed can't do this. Apparently this scene has kind of gone semi viral?

Did they blue screen in that golf course? Something just seems off to me. At first, I thought it looked like a really good video game cut scene. 

I think they look very hi definition, and the background looks less so. 

The physics of the golf ball look off. You can see the golf ball just start to plummet out of the air right after he hits it.

Why are you both assuming it's a par four?

Also, it's clearly not a real ball. It's just CG.

See below. That was Harris making the swings, but probably CGI for the ball. I was watching his swings and saw him playing a fade, but the ball came in as a draw every time 🙄

the shocking part to me is that someone would be surprised to see unrealistic golf in a movie. Even movies that purport realism...say, the greatest game ever played...the golf has many, many shots that I look at and think "yes, I can hit that...on the X-Box"

weirdly, some of the most realistic golf shots I have ever seen were in Caddyshack...the 40 yard straight right shank, I have seen that and pretty much that exact ball flight :-)

Only really liked the first season. Bailed midway through the 2nd and sounds like I didnt miss anything.
