Roy "Tin Cup" McAvoy (Costner) is a washed-up golf pro who lives in a Winnebago near the small West Texas town of Salome and runs a driving range. His nickname comes from the protection he wore when he was a catcher. One day an attractive shrink, Dr. Molly Griswold (Russo) shows up for golf lessons, and Roy is intrigued. Unfortunately, Molly is seeing his successful rival, fatuous David Simms (Johnson, in full jerk mode). Roy decides to take a last shot at qualifying for the US Open as a way of testing his value and winning Molly's heart. Cheech Marin has a delightful supporting role as a Mexican golf guru who agrees to be Tin Cup's caddy. Director and co-writer Ron Shelton did a similarly deft job with the earlier "Bull Durham"; this 1996 film concentrates less on its particular sport and is a bit lighter, a little more feel-good.
