A lackadaisical one-time golf pro, now operating a run-down driving range in Texas, gets his competitive juices flowing again when a slick former colleague shows up and asks him to be his--gasp!--caddie. Not only will the washed-up hacker not deign to be a caddie, he falls for and ultimately seduces the pro's beautiful psychologist girlfriend and launches a motivated bid for the U.S. Open. A winning comedy from the creator of "Bull Durham."
At one time, Roy McAvoy coulda been a contender in a major golf tournament. Now, the ambition-free McAvoy runs a failing, armadillo-infested golf range. When sexy psychiatrist Molly Griswold comes to Roy for lessons, he's immediately smitten with her. But the ne'er-do-well realizes that the only way he'll have a chance with her is if he shapes up his act.
Complicating matters is Molly's smug boyfriend David, an old friend of Roy's who is now a top golf pro. After a humiliating gig working as David's caddy, Roy decides to enter the U.S. Open. Although a long-shot, the underdog sees the Open as an opportunity to show up David, win Molly's heart -- and prove to himself he's not a loser.
