Tin Cup is, without question, the greatest golf movie starring Kevin Costner of all time. See what I did there? But seriously, in an age where so many golf movies are still hot garbage, Tin Cup is one that always shines. It is the story of Roy McAvoy, a massively talented but exceptionally self-destructive driving range pro who somehow manages to temporarily cast his demons aside to qualify for the U.S. Open. His cavalier, go-for-broke attitude is what makes golfers and fans of the movie love him.
Now, just in time for the U.S. Open, there is finally a Roy McAvoy t-shirt honoring his fictitious legacy thanks to SwingJuice, makers of the best golf t-shirts around. This time, they have outdone themselves hitting us with a U.S. Open-inspired t-shirt with none other than Roy “I’m gonna steal your girlfriend” McAvoy on it. It’s only fitting to honor him, because after all, he is golf’s most famous local qualifier.
If you’ve seen Tin Cup, the image you see on the shirt is familiar. It is one of the most iconic moments in the movie. It’s right when McAvoy drops one final ball and holes out from a billion yards away to card a TWELVE on his final hole. Sure he didn’t win the tournament, but he also didn’t play it safe. That’s why we love him. And that is why we love – LOVE — this one-of-a-kind Roy McAvoy t-shirt Buy: $25
