The best and worst golf movies ever
What are your favorite golf movies of all time? The Augusta Chronicle sports editor John Boyette lists the top five and worst five golf movies ever.
FIVE GOLF MOVIES TO WATCH ...
1. Caddyshack/1980/Snobs vs. Slobs, and an all-star cast of comedians.
2. Tin Cup/1996/Another great sports film from Ron Shelton (Bull Durham and White Men Can’t Jump).
3. Happy Gilmore/1996/Second-most quoted golf movie behind Caddyshack.
4. Dead Solid Perfect/1988/Adapted from hilarious Dan Jenkins novel. Enough said.
5. The Greatest Game Ever Played/2005/Inspiring story of 1913 U.S. Open win by Francis Ouimet.
... AND FIVE TO MISS
1. Caddyshack II/1988/No Bill Murray, Rodney Dangerfield or Ted Knight equals no good.
2. Who’s Your Caddy?/2007/Many scenes filmed in nearby Aiken, but that can’t save this one.
3. The Legend of Bagger Vance/2000/Mystical caddie helps war veteran Matt Damon rediscover his game.
4. The Tiger Woods Story/1998/This biopic wasn’t authorized by the Woods camp. Enough said.
5. Follow the Sun/1951/Inspiring story of Ben Hogan, but Glenn Ford can’t bring Hogan’s swing to the screen.
