Description by OLDIES.com:
Pretty Diana snuggles up to married golf pro Jerry Marshall and suggests they play a more intimate game. Quick as you can say videotape, Diana has blackmail evidence and a chilling demand: I'll kill your golf rival and you kill my psychiatrist. Carol Lynley (The Poseidon Adventure) headlines a '60s Malibu Beach version of Strangers on a Train, the classic Alfred Hitchcock thriller based on Patricia Highsmith's novel about swapped murders. Turning a golf cart and a putter into lethal weapons, Diana upholds her end of their bargain. Now it's Jerry's (Paul Burke) turn - or else. Diana really wants her shrink offed. Why? Seems he's the only one who's figured out she's one dangerous psycho. At least, he's the only one until Jerry hears Diana's crazy-scary scheme.
Diana (Carol Lynley) is the wealthy, mentally unbalanced woman who seduces the local golf pro Jerry (Paul Burke). She proposes they each do the other a favor by eliminating their rivals. The drunken golfer laughs and agrees to kill Diane's psychiatrist Dr. Haggis (Whit Bissell), believing Diane is kidding. She is dead serious and kills the golfer's main competitor Mike (Philip Carey) by running him over with a golf cart. Diane tape records their conversation and uses it to blackmail the golfer into going through with his end of the bargain. Jerry goes to Dr. Haggis with the problem while police Lieutenant Gavin (Stephen McNally) is called in to solve the murder of the rival golfer.
