Tin Cup script
Tin Cup (1996)
Synopsis: Roy McAvoy (Kevin Costner) was a golf pro with a bright future, but his rebellious nature and bad attitude cost him everything. Now working as a golf instructor, he falls for his newest pupil, Dr. Molly Griswold (Rene Russo), a psychiatrist who happens to be the girlfriend of PGA Tour star and Roy's rival, David Simms (Don Johnson). After he is humiliated by Simms at a celebrity golf tournament, McAvoy decides to make a run for the PGA Tour, as well as Molly's heart.

TIN CUP:

Ma'am, I've been called a lot of

things -- but no one's ever

saddled me with that one.

MOLLY:

You might try being saddled

sometime -- the smell of leather,

the sting of a whip...

The regulars snicker, enjoying her one-upmanship.

TIN CUP:

(slightly taken

aback)

I'm just a humble golf pro...

MOLLY:

You're Roy McAvoy the golf pro? I

pictured something... different.

I have a seven o'clock lesson.

TIN CUP:

I thought I had a Doctor Griswold

at seven.

They hurry out to the range, Tin Cup oblivious to hisgaffe.

And the regulars gather to look out the window -4

THEIR POV - THROUGH WINDOW 4

To the range, where Molly is stretching and Tin Cup isdiscreetly waving to the regulars to get lost.

CUT TO:

5 EXT. DRIVING RANGE - NIGHT 5

The lesson begins. Tin Cup can be slightly condescendingin these situations, though she's got him a little wary.

TIN CUP:

The first thing you gotta learnabout this game, Doc, is it ain'tabout hitting a little white ballinto some yonder hole. It's about

inner demons and self-doubt and

human frailty and overcoming allthat crap. So... what kinda

doctor'd you say you were?

MOLLY:

I'm a psychologist -- in layman'sterms call me a neo-Jungian, post-

modern Freudian, holistic

secularist.

Damn.

TIN CUP:

She begins unpacking one of her bags, pulling out everygolf gimmick on the market -- swing aid straps to pullyour elbows together, a ball pendulum that hangs fromyour hat, a metal contraption for your feet, etc.

MOLLY:

Inner demons and human frailty aremy life's work. I used to

practice in El Paso but I've movedhere now...

TIN CUP:

What're those?

MOLLY:

I ordered these from the Golf

Channel.

He stares in disbelief as she tries to wriggle into some

of this stuff. He's enchanted and dismayed.
