Movies about golfing are mostly for entertainment purposes only and should not be taken seriously. While golfers and others will enjoy the storyline, characters, and outcomes, they should be careful not to critique the actual golf round being played as they are fictionalized through editing and camera tricks most of the time. While actors may play golf in their spare time, they are mostly not able to perform most of the tricks they seem to perform during the movie.
But this does not mean that movies about golf are boring or invaluable. In fact, any movie that has a good theme, actors, and storyline should do well even if the stunts are unrealistic. Three movies about golf that were popular with audiences include ‘Tin Cup’, ‘The Legend of Bagger Vance’, and ‘Happy Gilmore’. While each of these movies centers around golf, they are very different in theme, style, and outcome. There are many other movies that feature golf in the background.
