Best Golf Movie of All-Time


#1

What’s your favorite golf movie of all-time? There are no wrong answers, but there is a right answer for sure. Tin Cup.


#2

Caddyshack hands down (might be cliche but who cares). Tin Cup is 2nd for me


#3

Tin Cup 1st for me…Caddyshack 2nd. Wish they would do some more movies though.


#4

Tin Cup, if for no other reason it gave us the line of “shooting chili peppers up Lee Janzen’s ass” (or some such)


#5

Happy Gilmore is the best, most quotable one IMO

here’s a sub-question

which golf movie has the most cringey bad golf swings?


#6

No love for The Squeeze?


#7

The Legend of Bagger Vance


#8

since no has mentioned it The Greatest Game Ever Played


#9

Legend of Bagger Vance, while a great movie, has some of the worst golf shots in cinematic history


#10

Holy Crap, The Squeeze is a tough watch. I have caught sections of it on Golf Channel, but never could stomach more than 5-10 minutes at a time.

I would have to think that at some point, the life and story of Tiger is going to be a major motion picture. It has to be, especially if he wins again.


#11

Happy Gilmore. After a few watches, I stopped laughing at the scenes of Caddyshack. I laugh at least one thing every time I watch Happy Gilmore. And since hockey is the next best sport to golf, it appeals to both those passions of mine.


#12

No love for Dead Solid Perfect? (http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0094965/?ref_=nm_flmg_act_78)

I remember watching it as a kid, and even at my tender age getting very angry that the caddy was standing in the bunker with the bag while his golfer hit a shot. It’s laughably bad, and Randy Quaid also did Caddyshack II. Golf movies may have been the beginning of his downward spiral actually.


#13

The real silent killer is definitely Seven Days in Utopia with Robert Duvall and Lucas Black.


#14

does the hammer x infomercial count?


#15

Anyone see Bobby Jones: Stroke of Genius? Jim Caviezel plays Jones. Very underrated.


#16

Don’t forget about T.K. Oh. Incredible performance by that actor.


#17

15% on rotten tomatoes is a travesty. K.J. Choi was snubbed at the Oscars for his performance.

Fact of the matter is golf movies are best as comedies. Tin Cup and Caddyshack are in a league of their own.


#18

If we’re including documentaries here, I thoroughly enjoyed “The Short Game” on Netflix, if only for the GOAT helicopter/overbearing parent Andre Avery.

Gilmore, Happy. Hands down for me.


#20

Does anybody know where one can go about watching Dead Solid Perfect. I have heard good things but can’t find it anywhere besides VHS on ebay.
