Visible crew/equipment: During the last sequence at the last green there are shots of the doctor and the judge (particularly the one where the judge pulls out "Billy".) If you look in the bottom left hand of the screen you can see a shadow of a camera, and at times, the head of a crew member.

Continuity mistake: At the beginning of the movie, Chevy Chase puts on a blindfold and reaches for his clubs, but he knocks a couple of them over and they land on the golf course.

Continuity mistake: When Judge is finishing off his day on the golf course, just before Czervick says "Bet you thousand bucks you miss that putt," the guy holding the hole's flag is leaning his shoulder on it, but in the following shot he has it outstretched. (00:25:35)

The-Immortal

Continuity mistake: When Al is pointing out the condos he owns, he has a heart-shaped sweat stain on his shirt. A few moments later, when he bets that the judge will miss the put, the stain is gone. (00:25:30 - 00:26:45)

Continuity mistake: When the Judge is playing golf and Al Czervik drives a golf ball right into Judge's crotch, when the golf ball hits, the Judge puts both hands to the crotch in agony, but in the following shot only his right hand is on the crotch area. (00:21:05)

The-Immortal

Audio problem: When Al Czervik pays the band leader to play something hot, they stop playing slow music and a disco song starts up. The disco song is obviously the original studio recording and not the clubhouse band. The female vocal accompaniments from the recording can be heard, but there were no female vocalists with the clubhouse band. (00:36:10)

Factual error: In the ending credits where the music used in the film is listed, Neal Schon's first name is misspelled "Neil".

Cubs Fan

Factual error: In the very beginning (2nd scene) just after Danny (the Caddy) eats and then jumps down from the backside of his house and hops on his bike to head to work, look in the background behind him and at about the 5th house or so he passes you will see a classic palm tree in the front yard. The movie takes place in Nebraska (which doesn't have any palm trees of course).

Tim Dickerson

Continuity mistake: At the very beginning, when Danny is talking with his dad, in the close-up just after he says, "30 bucks less tips," his spoon is putting sugar in the cereal, but from the back his spoon is in the sugar bowl. Also, the little glass goes from being in front of the dad's hand to behind his hand, in the following shot. (00:02:30)

The-Immortal

Danny: I haven't even told my father I'm not going to get that scholarship. I'm gonna end up working in a lumberyard the rest of my life.
Ty Webb: What's wrong with lumber. I own two lumberyards.
Danny: I notice you don't spend too much time there.
Ty Webb: I'm not quite sure where they are.
