Plot hole: Junuh gets the lowest score on the 17th hole in the final round, which puts all the players at 'even'. It should therefore have been his honour 18th tee. He actually tees off last, which would indicate that Jones and Hagan had bettered (or at least matched) his score on the 17th.
Factual error: When the second round of the tournament is starting and Bagger Vance is telling Rannulph Junuh about 'the field', just after Bobby Jones has taken his tee-shot, Bagger hands Junuh a ball and tee. The tee is a red plastic 'castle' style tee. Apart from being illegal in tournament play, I'm pretty sure they weren't around in the 1920's.
Rannulph Junnah: I could have killed you out there.
Bagger Vance: Oh no sir, see I set myself directly in front of ya. Judgin' how you were hittin' them balls that's where I figure I'd be out of harms way.
