A washed up golf pro working at a driving range tries to qualify for the US Open in order to win the heart of his successful rival's girlfriend.
John Leguizamo was considered for the part of Romeo.
Dr. Molly Griswold:
I'm a, like, terrible shrink, probably. I should have never gotten out of real estate, shit, actually, I should have never left Ohio for that cowboy in Amarillo, but... Have you ever been to Amarillo?
Roy 'Tin Cup' McAvoy: Cowboy?
Dr. Molly Griswold: Yeah. It's not as romantic when you're ...
On the very last hole of the US Open, presented as a par 5, Kevin Costner can make an Eagle or Birdie if he hits it over the water, so he has at that point 2 strokes. He hits (3) it onto the green, where it rolls back into the water. He drops (4) a replacement, hits (5) it onto the green and again it rolls back into the water. He drops (6) another, hits (7) it just short into the water, He drops (8) again, hits (9) it into the water, again. He drops (10) a final ball, hits (11) it over the water onto the green, near the hole, and it rolls back and to the right, into the hole, for a total of 11. Yet everyone in the movie mistakenly talks about 12, and given the lack of mutter on the web, no one, not even the professionals (a number of which were in the movie) noticed the blatant error.
At least one network television version adds a scene just before the U.S. Open, in which Roy and Romeo are almost kept from entering due to their shabby clothes and winnebago. David Simms then shows up, "heroically" points out that Roy's name is misspelled on the roster, and they all enter... but Roy's winnebago causes a considerable amount of (unintentional) property damage due to its height. But this makes Romeo's surprised observation in the next scene that David is present less understandable.
