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.

I'm in... We're in... Count us

in... etc...


Okay, a man's driving down the

road with his son and they get

in a crash. Two ambulances come

and take the man and his son to

different hospitals. Son goes

into the operating room, the

doctor looks at him and says, 'I

can't operate on this boy. He's

my son.' How's that possible?


The clock's ticking boys...

Tin Cup begins bouncing a ball on the face of his wedge.


Father didn't sneak back in,

right? He's still at the other



It ain't 'Star Trek,' Earl. No

one beamed him aboard.

That eliminates the most plausible theory in their minds.

The men think harder.


Well... if the father married the

son's daughter -


It's a family riddle, Earl. Think

clean thoughts.


The regulars puzzle some more.


Give us a little hint.


The doctor's a woman.

All heads turn to take in the arrival of:


Standing just inside the door -- she's a fresh-faced

beauty in her early thirties, and she's got all new

everything the sport of golf requires: new bag, new

clubs, new shoes, new clothes, new visor... she looks

like she stepped out of an ad in Golf Digest. And all

the men are asking themselves the same question: what's

she doing here? The silence invites Molly to supply the

riddle's answer.


The doctor is the son's mother.

Feminists pose the riddle to

reveal how deeply our sexual

stereotypes run.

(directly to Tin Cup)

I take it you're a feminist?

Tin Cup misses the ball he's been bouncing, breaking the

spell. The regulars wait for Tin Cup's response.
