Episode Summary

EDIT
Rodney Fails to Qualify
AIRED:
This is the story of love among golfers. It shows how true love, even if it slides into troubled waters, can always get back on the fairway, though it may get rather wet. Young William Bates is a torpid wooer who will not pop the question to Jill Packard, who is becoming dreamy and absent-minded, ever since reading 'The Love That Scorches' a romantic epic about the desert and people on camels and an Arab Chief with stern but tender eyes, and oases and mirages and things like that... The Oldest Member advises William to be quick about it and ask Jill to marry him before she becomes too entangled with romantic poet Rodney Spelvin. His advice to William is to engage Jill in a passionate exchange at the 6th hole in the large bunker there - a vast sandy waste where Jill may prove more susceptible to his wooing, and recommmends that before he even speaks to her, William is to clasp her in his arms and let his hot breath sear her face. But will William be in time? Even now Jill is walking in a romantic mist through the woods looking for bluebells and crocusses.moreless
