Picking just one can be hard, but give it a try! I’m looking for recommendations.
Almost impossible to just pick one. But for the sake of the exercise, how about Tin Cup? I’ve been a golfer my whole life from a small town, played in college, etc, so the golf and underdog part of the story really hits home. Kevin Costner is amazing and funny too, so yea, I would say this is one of my faves.
You are right. Impossible to pick just one.
