Other mistake: When Roy is about to hit the ball off the porta-potty, the TV commentator bets Romeo that he won't hit the shot onto the green. Roy's shot ends up on the fringe of the green, not on the putting surface itself (an important difference), but Dewey collects the bet.

Revealing mistake: In the scene where Romeo and Roy snap all the clubs other than the 7-iron, Roy drops his golf ball onto the grass. However, when he hits the ball, a white tee can be seen travelling up towards the top left of the screen. The tee can easily be seen but is much clearer in slow motion.

Continuity mistake: The first lesson Molly has with Roy, it's already dusk, and when they go outside, it's dark. At the end of the lesson, Roy says "Same Time Next Week?" and Mollie says "Okay." But then in the next lesson Mollie complains that he is late. But when he does show up for that late lesson, it appears to be in the late afternoon, not even close to dusk.

Add time

Continuity mistake: During the scene in the final round where Roy and David hit their balls onto a green, there are a couple of mistakes (one mistake has already been noted in this scene - the mistake where Roy is swinging his putter from side to side etc). Firstly, as they all walk up to the green, Roy's ball (which should be quite close to the hole) is not on the green. Secondly, when Dave misses his putt, look at Romeo. He is standing to the right of Roy, but in the immediate next shot he is on Roy's left.

Continuity mistake: In the scene where Costner is playing Johnson in the final round, we see both of them lining up their putts. Costner is swinging the grip of the putter from side to side in front of his face. When we see him through Rene Russo's periscope, he is not moving the club at all. The shot cuts back to Costner, and he is swinging the club again.

Continuity mistake: When Renee is talking to her mentor on the phone she begins by "doodling" a spiral from top to bottom on the note pad in front of her. Later you see a full shot of the pad and there are only small doodles at the top of the page, nothing in the middle. Again later you see the note pad with more doodles on it but they don't match the action shown at the beginning of the phone call.

Continuity mistake: During Molly's first golf lesson we see Roy about to show her how to swing the club. Right from the moment after which she takes her shot to where we see him take his, his hair changes styles during all of the different shots. This is particularly noticeable with his fringe.

Scrappy

Continuity mistake: When Roy goes to see Molly at her office we see him about to ask Molly out. During this scene Roy's hair style constantly changes. His fringe is messy and sticking up when the camera faces him from Molly's view; and flat and tidy when the camera is at the opposite angle.

Scrappy

Continuity mistake: After Kevin Costner plays the first round of the US Open when he plays horribly, he and his caddie are seen looking at his score being posted on the scoreboard. The number posted for the 18th hole is a 5. Later on, however, when he is talking to Don Johnson in the bar, and Johnson asks him, "How the hell did you shoot an 83?" he replies, "I missed a 5-foot putt on the last hole for an 82." Considering that the announcers say several times that he hit his second shot on number 18 in the water every single day of the tournament, this is impossible. If he hits it in the water, he takes a penalty shot and now he is hitting his fourth shot onto the green, putting for a 5. If he then, as he says, misses the 5 foot putt, he must make a 6 on the hole. I've watched it a thousand times, it just isn't possible.

Add time

Continuity mistake: After Dave takes his first shot on the final hole, he is seen walking and you can see that his glove is tucked in his back pocket. The camera angle changes to a front view and you see him taking off his glove and tucking it in his back pocket again.

Other mistake: When Roy makes the bet with Gary McCord on his second shot of the bathroom wall, the bet was he would get the bounce shot onto the green. The ball never gets on the green. The ball is actually on the fringe and a good 5 feet away from the green. Yet Gary still pays the bet that he lost. In reality he won the bet.

Brad Hruza

Continuity mistake: When Roy starts to play against Boone, he is taking a pink ball from Romeo, while we see Boone in the background wearing his sunglasses. The camera then changes to a close-up on Boone making a derogatory comment on the "pink fag ball" ball, and the sunglasses are now not on.

Continuity mistake: Just as Molly starts her first golf lesson, you can see her car in the distance. At the end of the lesson, when she walks back to the car, the car has changed position and angle.

Add time

Factual error: On the final hole, the shot that Roy "has" to make is hit perfectly the first time. For some unknown reason, it spins backward off the green. This is patently impossible with a 3-wood. The club just doesn't allow it, and any golfer on the face of the earth knows it. This scene should have been shot with a long iron, a 2 or 3 iron, which is still very hard to hit, but at least possible (for a pro) to put enough spin to back it up.

Add time

Continuity mistake: At the beginning of the movie, Roy has just finished practising and is standing next to his golf bag holding a bottle of beer. He is not wearing a golf glove. However, as he is walking back to the 'clubhouse' he is seen removing a golf glove, with his mouth, from his left hand.

Plot hole: Near the start of the film, Molly answers Roy's riddle. But she wasn't there when he asked it, so how does she know the answer?

Add time

Continuity mistake: During the first competition when Roy is caddying for David Sims we see Roy offer David the 3 Wood. When David refuses they have a discussion.

Right after the discussion we see Roy then once again pull the 3 Wood from the bag and again offer it to David.

In the following shot as he walks away, his hair is back to sweeping to the side.
