    I just cannot fathom the deep love that Tin Cup has received from the CF faithful. Though I will admit that it is a better movie than Happy Gilmore (which also apparently has many CF fans.) But why the outpouring of love?

    I think Tin Cup is also the recipient of good matchups with movies people haven't seen. That said, I am a golfer and I really liked the movie. Plot was very iffy, but the production quality and cameos by golfers were great.

    That said, if The Natural doesn't win this region, I will be very disappointed.

    It's going to be Kevin Costner to the Final Four......

    Will he be saying....

    "Well, I believe in the soul, the ****, the *****, the small of a woman's back, the hanging curve ball, high fiber, good scotch, that the novels of Susan Sontag are self-indulgent, overrated crap. I believe Lee Harvey Oswald acted alone. I believe there ought to be a constitutional amendment outlawing Astroturf and the designated hitter. I believe in the sweet spot, soft-core pornography, opening your presents Christmas morning rather than Christmas Eve and I believe in long, slow, deep, soft, wet kisses that last three days.....


    or

    "The critical opening phrase of this poem will always be the grip. Which the hands unite to form a single unit by the simple overlap of the little finger. Lowly and slowly the clubhead is led back. Pulled into position not by the hands, but by the body which turns away from the target shifting weight to the right side without shifting balance. Tempo is everything; perfection unobtainable as the body coils down at the top of the swing. Theres a slight hesitation. A little nod to the gods..........Yeah, to the gods. That he is fallible. That perfection is unobtainable. And now the weight begins shifting back to the left pulled by the powers inside the earth. It's alive, this swing! A living sculpture and down through contact, always down, striking the ball crisply, with character. A tuning fork goes off in your heart and your balls. Such a pure feeling is the well-struck golf shot. Now the follow through to finish. Always on line. The reverse C of the Golden Bear! The steel workers' power and brawn of Carl Sandburg's. Arnold Palmer! "

    Isn't Chariots of Fire about a bunch of Brits? That made me lean towards Tin Cup. America, **** yeah

    I live about 1 mile from the golf course where much of Tin Cup was filmed. I've only seen Chariots of Fire once... and really didn't like it. Tin Cup had some good laughs in it for a date movie.
