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.

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 think an active lead knee (or both knees) certainly helps with sequencing. In order for the knee to move forward and around (and straighten) it helps for it to gain some flex and rotate internally on the backswing. Creates some "flow". I basically described what I mean by active knee movement in my previous post in this thread. Like I said, doing the knee stuff in of itself might not be the answer, have to consider how the torso is working to facilitate the motion/pieces. While I love Jack's swing and think there is a lot we can learn from it, he was a special players and he would have been just as good with a swing where he kept the lead heel planted.
    • Quality over quantity! I understand the concept, but 2 grand for 3 wedges? There's no way they out perform vokey or any of your other major wedges enough to warrant those kind of prices! That's just my opinion. You're 100% correct there are people with money to blow who will buy them just to say they did. IMO it's all about the player. Spieth for example could take any wedge and most likely perform better than I ever will be able to. Which I'm sure you will agree to some extent. Just blows my mind at the cost! 
    • I'm still putting my money on you being the bigger head case.  
    • The dude has won 2 majors with glaringly less talent than the other top players....I don't think that happens to a head case. People tend to think otherwise at times because he wears his emotions on his sleeve so vividly, but Spieth's mental game is still more of an asset than anything else for him IMO. With his relatively limited talent, you don't accomplish things that only Jack, Tiger, and Seve have done if you're truly a head case. Reality vs. perception difference here.
    • The site of the 2017 U.S. Open is near my old stomping grounds...I was born about 30 min. away from where Erin Hills was eventually built.  I moved from that area long before the course was even planned, so I've never been there or played it or anything, but I learned some interesting things this evening. I have a good friend up there who works for a limo/shuttle company, and he has been driving people from Madison, Milwaukee and O'Hare to Erin Hills for several days, and he made several comments on how remote the golf course is.  It might not be exactly in the middle of nowhere, but apparently a short drive would get you there. There is only one way in, and one way out.  And these are country roads, not four-lane highways. They announced this site would host the U.S. Open in 2010...seven years ago, and they couldn't get a better road system in place?  I thought that was one of the things that they took into consideration when they scout potential sites?  It sounds like this course was earmarked to host USGA events before it was even built, so if they set out to design a course that would one day host a major, why wouldn't the road infrastructure be included? Anyway, the course itself is a monster...or at least can be, when the stretch it out.  From the blacks it plays 7,800 yds, but it looks like it will play about 7,700 during the tournament.  All four par 5s are over 600 yds, two par 4s are over 500 yds, and two others are over 480.  This is the first time in many years the course will play to a par of 72, which actually gives the guys a chance to make up some ground.
