According to the US Golf Association, a player can borrow a ball from another player as long as it's the same brand and model, so if Roy hit his last ball into the water, he may or may not have been disqualified, as Romeo stated.

When teeing off on the 18th hole during the final round Turk can be seen in the crowd behind the tee box. Later, during the play of the same hole, he is in the bleachers alongside the 18th green. An incredible sprint for a 300 pound man.

On the 10th green in the final round of the US Open, Roy tugs up each pant leg and squats down to line up a putt. The camera angle then changes, but shows a repeat of the same action.

During the opening credits and the opening scene, the range is shown at twilight, and Roy hits balls into the setting sun, yet when he and his entourage enter the pro shop, the light coming through the blinds, as well as the view of the range through the front door clearly show it to be daytime. When Roy and Molly step outside to begin her first lesson, it is twilight again.

Errors in geography 

CBS golf producer Lance Barrow offers that Salome is in West Texas near Floydada. Floydada is in the panhandle about 60 miles east of Lubbock, not near Fort Stockton as the road signs at the first of the movie suggest. Barrow is from Floydada and was probably giving a shout out to folks back home.

Factual errors 

On the second hole of the final round, Roy bets Gary McCord he can hit it off the porta potty onto the green. His ball only gets to the fringe short of the green, but McCord pays anyway.

In the bar after the first round, Roy commented that he didn't shoot an 82 because he missed a four footer on the 18th. The scoreboard showed that Roy shot 5 (par) on the 18th to shoot 83. Yet, following Roy's shot into the water on the 18th in the third round, broadcaster Jim Nantz stated that he had found the water for the third straight day. If Roy had put the ball in the water with his second shot on the 18th in the first round and missed a four footer on that green the best score he could have had would have been a 6. (Drive + shot into water + penalty stroke + approach shot + missed putt + made putt = 6)

On the 2nd hole of Day 4 of The Open, Roy bets Gary McCord $50 that he can get his third shot on the green (off the porta john). Roy's shot comes up just short of the green, but we see McCord paying Romeo the $50.

The U.S. Open golf tournament was depicted as broadcast by CBS. At the time of the film, the Open was broadcast by NBC. To date, CBS has never broadcast the Open, and will not until at least 2027, when the current contract (held by Fox) expires.

In the bar following the first round of the US Open, the Brickyard 400 NASCAR race is on the TVs. This race is held the first weekend of August every year; the US Open is always in June. Also, the first round is played on Thursday, not the weekend.

On the very last hole of the US Open, presented as a par 5, Kevin Costner can make an Eagle or Birdie if he hits it over the water, so he has at that point 2 strokes. He hits (3) it onto the green, where it rolls back into the water. He drops (4) a replacement, hits (5) it onto the green and again it rolls back into the water. He drops (6) another, hits (7) it just short into the water, He drops (8) again, hits (9) it into the water, again. He drops (10) a final ball, hits (11) it over the water onto the green, near the hole, and it rolls back and to the right, into the hole, for a total of 11. Yet everyone in the movie mistakenly talks about 12, and given the lack of mutter on the web, no one, not even the professionals (a number of which were in the movie) noticed the blatant error.

Miscellaneous 

McAvoy takes a "disastrous" double bogey on the first hole, but the score card being carried behind them has him at par and Simms at double bogey.

Plot holes 

On the last hole of the Open when Roy finally puts the ball in the cup and then proceeds to toss it into the water, several guys trample across the green and dive in the pond to retrieve the ball and one hoists it up once found. There is no way they would have been able to distinguish that ball from the other balls he hit into the drink. Not to mention they would have been tackled by security as Roy's playing partner still needed to complete his hole.

Revealing mistakes 

On his way to his historical second round score of 62, Tin Cup (Roy), is shown hitting his approach shot to the 18th green, and the announcer states that he has stuck his approach shot 12 feet from the hole, and the camera cut to the ball clearly shows a 12 foot putt waiting, but when Tin Cup actually goes to sink the putt, it's more like a 4 foot putt, not a 12 footer.
