Trivia: The scene where Ty is practicing late at night before the big game and "plays thru" at Carl's place was actually filmed after the movie had already wrapped and was largely improvised. The film makers thought a scene with Chevy Chase, who had left Saturday Night Live after the first season, and Bill Murray, who had replaced Chase in the second season, would be a nice comic touch, so they added one (literally) at the last minute.

Question: What does the judge say when the ref asks him if there are an odd or even number of tees in his hand? "Bald"? What am I missing here?

Matty Blast

Chosen answer: The judge says "odd". He was quessing at whether the ref had an even number of tees in his hand or an odd number of tees. This is a common and fair way of determining who will go first.
