Also, a hat appears on the counter from nowhere, because the judge hangs his up, and Al puts his back on the statue.

Revealing mistake: Lesser caddies sneaking around the golf course are seen with the print of their T-shirt in reverse (mirror) image, suggesting a decision by the director (Harold Ramis) to influence the on-screen direction of movement.

Continuity mistake: Early in the film, when Ted Knight arrives at the final hole and Rodney calls out "1000 bucks you miss the putt", we initially watch Ted line up the putt and it is only about 2 feet long (shoulder width). The shadow from his head is only a few inches from the hole. After getting flustered by Rodney's bet, Ted again sets up over the ball, and suddenly the putt has doubled in length. More importantly, the sky has changed from mostly sunny to considerably cloudy and the shadow from his head is at least 4 feet from the hole.

He nearly gags on the last drink and quickly exits the room. In the next shot, outside the restaurant, his unknotted bow-tie is hanging on the right side of his neck.

Revealing mistake: During the opening credits, the gopher is tunneling under the grass and plowing it up as he goes. In one of these shots, the path the gopher will take can be seen before he even gets there. The darker special-effects grass that the underground "gopher" will tear up is obvious.

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.

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).

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