In one behind-the-scenes clip, Matt Damon tries juggling a golf ball on the end of a club and then hitting it, but misses the shot and remarks, "I'm not Tiger Woods", referring to Woods' famous 1999 Nike commercial where he juggled a ball off the face of an iron, including with his left hand, between his legs and behind his back, before hitting a shot. The commercial was filmed in just four takes and with no special effects. See more »

The DreamWorks logo, the 20th Century Fox logo, and the opening credits are all silent when the film opens, except for the sound of the wind and crickets of the golf course. See more »
After viewing this film, I am feeling really good about myself right about now. This movie was uplifting and inspiring. You will feel good about yourself after seeing it. And that is probably what Robert Redford has hoped would happen. Hehe. That little s***. This movie has the exact feel of those other feel-good movies that have come before it. Ex. THE SHAWSHANK REDEMPTION, OCTOBER SKY, etc. But, for some reason THE LEGEND OF BAGGER VANCE seemed to be one of the better films of that genre. It almost made me cry, which very rarely ever happens. Matt Damon is a good actor. I hope to see more of him everywhere. If you are in the mood for a happy movie that will make you feel good about yourself, see this one.....5/5.
Oh, and it was good to see Jack Lemmon in this film. Especially since it is the last one he ever plays in.
