Plot Summary

A Hockey player wannabe finds out that he has the most powerful golf drive in history. He joins the P.G.A. tour to make some money to save grandma's house. The downside is that his hocky player mentality doesn't really go on the P.G.A. tour. Especially with the favorite to win the championship. Written by Kevin Mitchell

Did You Know?

Edit
Trivia During scenes involving Richard Kiel, he had to stand still or lean on items. In one scene it's a fence, in another it's another actor. This was due to a severe automobile accident he had in 1992 where he suffered head trauma, losing his ability to balance without aid. See more »
Goofs At the beginning when Happy is playing hockey, he hits the puck at the glass which the two men are standing behind. The glass clearly gets broken but then in the next close-up shot of the two men, the glass is back because a reflection can be seen in it. See more »
