Continuity mistake: In the scene where Mr. Larson bends Shooter's golf club, the camera shot from behind Larson shows him bending the club until both ends of the club are parallel. But in the next shot, from in front of Larson, the club is not bent as much as in the shot before.
Continuity mistake: At Happy's first tournament (the one he goes to with Chubbs), when Chubbs does the 'it's all in the hips' motion there is a lake behind him and Happy. However, when Happy then hits his ball and we see the overhead shot from the ball's point of view, we can see that there's no lake anywhere near them - it's just a green fairway.
Continuity mistake: On the last hole, Shooter McGavin overshoots the hole and the ball ends up going past the green. However once he shoots the ball off the man's foot and onto the green, we now see him coming onto the green from the fairway side at the bottom of the screen, not from behind the green past the hole.jerimiah
Continuity mistake: When Mr. Larson bends Shooter's golf club, he's holding the head of the club in his left hand. When it cuts to a shot behind him, the club's head is in Mr. Larson's right hand. When they show him from the front again, the club head is back in his left hand.
Continuity mistake: In the scene where Shooter is with the other pro golfers, (the ones with the gold jackets) and they're drinking wine, Happy interrupts them wearing an ACDC top. Notice Shooter's wine glass switch hands a number of times, and when he tells Happy to meet them on the 9th green, the wine glass has disappeared totally.
Continuity mistake: In the beginning of the movie he is not taken onto the hockey team. After he is hustling at the driving range he goes to toughen up. As he is toughening up, Chubbs unplugs the machine. The kid tries it, but he never plugged it back in and the machine still manages to work. (00:15:10)
