Best Golf Movie

99 posts in this topic

As far as comedy goes for me there is no other than "Caddyshack". How can anyone not love that movie? But on a serious side of golf I would have to say "Tin Cup". I have seen each of these movies at least 15 times a piece.

So lets here your favorite golf movie and quote(s)! The whole movie is one great quote but here a few of my fav's from Caddyshack.

"Last time I saw a mouth like that, it had a hook in it." - Rodney Dangerfield

"Oh, this is the worst-looking hat I ever saw. When you buy a hat like this, I bet you get a free bowl of soup, huh? [sees Judge Smails wearing the hat] Oh, but it looks good on you, though [rolls his eyes]." - Rodney

"Remember Danny - Two wrongs don't make a right but three rights make a left." - Ty

And a few from Tin Cup...

"I assume I have the confidentiality of the doctor-client privilege in regards to this outfit?" - Tin Cup

"Look, boss, I only got one rule. And that's never bet money that you don't have on a dog race with an ex-girlfriend who happens to be a stripper." - Romeo



If the mods can add a poll for me with the following options I would really appreciate it! Thanks in advance!

Tin Cup
Caddyshack
Caddyshack II
The Legend of Bagger Vance
The Greatest Game Ever Played
Dead Solid Perfect
Follow the Sun
Bobby Jones - Stroke of Genius
Happy Gilmore
A Gentleman's Game

Happy Gilmore gets my vote, but I'm really to young to remember the Caddy Shack or Tin Cup fad. Guess I should watch them all again before I cast my official ballot.

Dead Solid Perfect - hands down. Still catching one-liners. Favorite one... (while looking at a club) "F*** you and every thing you stand for!"

this movie never made it to DVD though.

For me - Caddyshack is funny, but Tin cup is my favorite golf movie. Its funny, clever, the characters are believable. But I have also found Rodney Dangerfield Obnoxious more so then funny.

Besides, who HASN'T remembered, "The price is WRONG Bob!"?

Interesting. Rodney Dangerfield was intentionally obnoxious - that is where the humor comes from. Sort of like Larry David does, just much less sophisticated.

Those are all great (I'm a huge caddyshack/tin cup fan) but the best golf movie is "The Greatest Game Ever Played"

Call it what you will, it's not funny. Maybe it's just my humor though. I guess I expect comedians to make me laugh, but maybe that's asking too much.

When it comes to Golf Movies I guess I prefer the more serious ones.

The Legend of Bagger Vance is hands down my favorite. I'm not a big Will Smith fan but for me this was his greatest performance. Just the whole spiritual aspect of the game and how it was played out was pretty cool. I watch the thing 4 or 5 times a year.

I like "The Greatest Game Ever Played" as a close second.


Most people go with Caddyshack but for whatever reason it just doesn't do it for me. The only scene I actually laughed at was when Bill Murray is whaking flowerheads and talking about "Here at Augusta,,,400 yards and he's got a Pitching Wedge,,,,,It's in the Hole" that was pretty funny!

Same thing with Caddyshack II, Randy Quaid was hilarious with his antics but the rest of the movie was like watching paint dry.

I have Dead Solid Perfect on DVD. I know it's a copy from a VHS, but it is good enough for me.

I found the movie "Back to School" funny, so I guess you are right that Rodney Dangerfield that was intentionally obnoxious.

However, I really enjoy Kevin Costner Sports movies. Bull Durham, Field of Dreams and Tin cup are all excellent movies.

    • I am with @DaveP043  Just buy the damned tees. or as  Bernie says.."enough of the damned emails".  OTOH, nothing wrong with a bit of lively discussion supported by factual information.
    • I usually like to tee my ball 2" below waist high.
    • Nadir is technically correct but fairly arcane; I've never heard anyone refer to the lowest point of the golf swing as the nadir. I used the term "apex' because in racing it refers to the inside point of the racing line in a turn at which you're closest to the curb. The orientation of hands to clubhead at impact does make a difference. However, the naive solution to being told you're leading the club with the hands is to release your wrists earlier, and done even a little too early this results in "casting" the club which wastes most of the power of the downswing. So, you have to be real careful telling someone who's keeping his wrists too stiff to "release more".
    • Actually, I was just looking back through the old Bulls goalies and there are a bunch of familiar names. Early on you had Doug Dadswell and Sandy Galluppo. Both those guys played for the Cyclones and Sandy had a stint with Dayton before Birmingham. You were one of the many, many stops for old Kalamazoo goalie Mike Torchia, a Michelin man-looking guy that I saw play the Cyclones many times. Last but certainly not least was my old BG buddy Shawn Timm. He played a miserable 15 minutes in goal for the Bulls after his senior season with the Falcons. Gave up three goals and became an investment banker. Great memories.
    • It might not have been the security guards who suggested paying for the damages. He gave them ~ $50 cash. He wasn't 'shaken down', taken to an ATM, relieved of watch, electronics, etc. In the U.S. there is such a thing as a citizen's arrest. It's possible that in Rio some licensed private security guards may be deputized in some way with partial powers to detain for arrest. Every time Lochte's lawyer responds to a media inquiry with 'no comment' it's billable time. If they decide to answer the charges with local representation the money bleed will accelerate. I'm positive paying the donation in lieu of fine in the short term like his teammate did would have been less costly. It would have been even less costly ~ $50 if he had kept his trap shut in the media having already narrowly avoided an official 'on the books' detention / arrest / fine. http://www.people.com/article/ryan-locht-summoned-brazil
