Bill Murray, of course, has been very involved in the sport of golf. He starred in the popular movie “Caddyshack” and also plays in the annual AT&T Pebble Beach Pro-Am.

Murray plays Carl Spackler in the film, and he was originally supposed to have no speaking parts. Director Harold Ramis later changed that and even asked Murray to ad-lib some of his scenes.

He famously did that in the “Cinderella story” sequence.

Here’s a look at Murray, the golfer, through the years:
