Bill Murray - Bill Murray Jokes About Becoming Pro Golfer

BILL MURRAY joked about becoming a professional golfer after winning the AT&T Pebble Beach National Pro-Am golf tournament by two strokes earlier this week.
BILL MURRAY, the American actor who played the golf course groundskeeper 'Carl Spackler' in the hit comedy 'Caddyshack', was victorious at one of the country's biggest Pro-Am competitions earlier this week, reports the Associated Press. Murray, who was playing with the professional D.A POINTS, is a low handicap golfer and has often spoken about his love for the game. In 1999, he released a book entitled 'Cinderella Story: My Life in Golf', in which he discussed playing at the famous Californian course that he triumphed on this week. Speaking after securing the victory, the actor said, "I'm thinking of turning pro. I probably won't. It's really nice to play with a gentleman. He's a good person. He's from Illinois. He's Lincoln-esque in stature and unfailingly polite". Murray's partner was equally taken aback by the win, saying, "Pebble Beach may be the most iconic place in America to play golf, and to win here, it's just a dream come true"
In recent years, Murray has received critical acclaim for his movie roles in 'Broken Flowers' and 'Get Low'. He is currently in negotiations to appear in the forthcoming film'Ghostbusters III' despite previously speaking of his reluctance to reprise his role as 'Dr Peter Venkman'.
