A down-and-out golfer attempts to recover his game and his life with help from a mystical caddy.
Matt Damon did not have any previous experience playing golf; he spent a month with golf pro Tim Moss in Hilton Head, South Carolina, to prepare for the role.
I'm not asking for your crown, Walter. If I wanted it badly enough, I'd just take it.
On the 18th hole of the final round, Walter Hagen chips a good 3 feet past the hole, and the ball is still moving when we cut away. When he goes to putt out he taps in a putt just inches from the hole.
The DreamWorks logo, the 20th Century Fox logo, and the opening credits are all silent when the film opens, except for the sound of the wind and crickets of the golf course.
