Synopsis by Hal Erickson
Comedian and rabid golf-a-holic Bill Murray teamed with his three real-life brothers for this hilarious weekly exercise in sibling rivalry on the golf links. Each half-hour episode found Murray on the road with Bryan Doyle-Murray (who wrote most of the episodes), John Murray (who directed), and Joel Murray, journeying to the most challenging and glamorous golf courses in the world, including Jamaica's Twin Palms, the Slammer and Squire at St. Augustine, FL, the Palm Springs Resort, and Wisconsin's Grand Geneva Resort. Competing for the coveted "Braggart's Cup," the Murray brothers frequently shared green space with guest stars like Ryan Stiles and Tim Meadows. Audiences quickly learned to expect the unexpected, from an 18-hole foursome played in Halloween costumes to an uncredited appearance by Ponce de Leon. The Sweet Spot debuted April 2, 2002 on the Comedy Central cable network.
