It’s Master weekend folks and to celebrate we’ve decided to list the Top 5 Most iconic Golf Movies Ever Made. Also, all the pictures in the post can be saved and used as your Computer/phones wallpaper!
Happy Gilmour (1996)
One of the most iconic movies I’ve ever watched! As a young hockey player who had little to no exposure to Golf, this movie made me fall in love with the game. Happy Gilmour is one of Adam Sandler’s best characters!
I didn’t see this movie until well after its premiere but it stood the test of time and became of these movies you put on when you can’t decide what to watch. The all-star cast including, Chevy Chase, Harvey Dangerfield, and Bill Murray will have you in stitches for the entire movie.
Kevin Costner absolutely crushed the box office in the 90’s, heck, he’s still doing well for himself (Draft Day). If you’ve ever played golf and have had a particularly frustrating round, you will relate to Costner’s character in this movie. It’s kind of like a more serious Happy Gilmour because Costner is considered the “Bad Boy” on the course. I always seem to catch this movie on TV and I always end up watching/enjoying it.
The Greatest Game Ever Played (2005)
I had virtually no idea what this movie was about until I stumbled across it on the gold Channel. Luckily, it was just starting, and I watched it straight through to the end. I actually really enjoyed this movie, its based on a true story, the main character (Shia LeBeouf) overcomes tremendous adversity, and it involves the story of “The Greatest Game Ever Played”
The Legend of Bagger Vance (2000)
First off, Robert Redford director this movie! It absolutely bombed at the box-office but I can honestly say that I enjoy it everytime I watch this movie. something about the classic underdog story that gets me every time. Perfect movie to watch on Sunday morning before the Masters.
