    The casual suavity of 007 against the palpable dirty tricks of Goldfinger and Oddjob. And quite an extended scene as well! We’ve all been exposed to skullduggery on the links to some degree, which have us digging deep for witty retorts as well as the need to uphold the honor of the game. So what that Bond displayed the former but not the latter? Though it never seems like it at the time, some issues are indeed larger than the game of golf.

    For my money, the pound for pound champion has to be Caddyshack. Not only the funniest, most quotable, greatest movie about golf, but arguably the funniest movie of all time (Animal House may give it a run for it’s money, though). From the frustratingly zen Chevy Chase to the antics of a Rodney Dangerfield in his prime, with a role Bill Murray practically gave birth to whole cloth, and the undisputed master of righteous indignation, Ted Knight. This movie had it all, and it was never afraid to let us know it. Brian Doyle Murray as the course official and Caddy Master was also a gem.

    Ironically, the Caddyshack franchise then put out the WORST golf movie of all time, Caddyshack II.

    Truly, he giveth, he taketh away.
