With the Leo taking the cake at this years 2016 Oscars, our minds couldn’t help but wander back to some great golf films. So, we decided to create a list of the Top 5 Golf Movies Ever Made. These flicks capture the sentiments of one of our favorite sports and make for some great movie nights! Think we missed one? Write it in the comments below.
Coming in #5 on our list, this heart -warming flick starring Shia LaBeouf is set in 1913 US Open, where 20-year-old Francis Ouimet (LaBeouf) competes head to head against his favorite US Open Champion, Harry Vardon. We love this movie because it tells a great story (it's even in the title) and because it's cute golf film for families to watch together.
This movie made it to #4 on our list because of it's message about finding yourself in life as much as it is about finding yourself in golf. "The Legend of Bagger Vance" stars Will Smith, Matt Damon and Charlize Theron and was tactfully directed by Robert Redford.
Caddyshack is a classic golf comedy that hosts all sorts of inspiration from its stars. This 1980s movie includes Chevy Chase, Rodney Dangerfield and Bill Murray and makes us laugh... a lot. We think it fits nicely at #3 on our list.
This ridiculous Adam Sandler flick comes in #2 on our list. It's cinematic art form may not have been as important as The Legend of Bagger Vance, but Happy Gilmore's swing is heard round the world. With players like Jordan Speith taking up Gilmore's style, this movie still makes pop culture waves.
Our #1 golf movie is Tin Cup starring Kevin Costner and Rene Russo. We love this film because it is well written, has some fun betting scenes and gets us excited to get out and play golf!
