Top 5 Golf Movies

Posted on: April 28, 2009 4:38 pm

There was a reasonable response to my 10 favoriteboxing movies post and football movies as well. OK, I don't know a lot of Golf movies, but I will give it a whirl and put in my top 5 golf movies:

I wonder if Tiger Woods will read chance!!!

1. Caddyshack - a host of characters. Chevy Chase, Bill Murray, Ted Knight, and Rodney Dangerfield. Hilarious

2. The Greatest Game Ever Played - the true story of amateur Francis Oimet's upset of Harry Vardon and Ted Ray in the US Open in 1913. Some great special effects.

3. Tin Cup - Kevin Costner plays a down on his luck golfer who plays in the US Open. Don Johnson, Rene Russo and Cheech Marin also star.

4. The Legend of Baggar Vance - Post WWI yarn about a former golfer, and war hero played by Matt Damon. Will Smith's portrayal of the caddy is outstanding...Charlize Theron(my favorite actress) plays the rich girl.

5. Dead Solid Perfect - Randy Quaid as a golfer trying to make it as a pro. Kathryn Harrold(still hot) and Jack Warden co star.

Well, those are my favorites...let me know about yours.

Top 5 Golf Movies

Wondersport...although interesting, I'm afraid that would take some serious time to develope a top 10 list of those.

My Favorite would be Kareem Abdul-Jabbar in Airplane...every time I think of it some of the scenes, I start laughing. Kareem was also in a Bruce Lee movie...a more serious picture. Can't remember the name at the moment.

Do you have one?

Top 5 Golf Movies

wondersport...I had forgotten about Dorf on Golf...yes, Tim Conway is a riot. I saw a lot of you picked Happy Gilmore, which probably would have been number 6 for me...Adam Sandler is very popular in sports movies, so I will give him his props.

Golf was a lot tougher because it was hard finding enough movies I had seen. Lucky for me I watch a lot of movies...thanks for the responses guys.
