The world of professional golf gets the Martin and Lewis treatment in this mildly funny film. Harvey Miller (Jerry Lewis) has all the tools to be a great professional golfer, but he has one rather big problem: he comes totally unglued in front of a gallery. Knowing he'll never be able to

play the tour himself, Harvey teaches everything he knows to the debonair Joe Anthony (Dean Martin), acting as his protege's caddy when he enters a big tournament. However, crowds still transform Harvey into a nervous wreck, and as Joe's game improves and his head swells, he begins to see his

"caddy" as a liability. At a tournament at Pebble Beach, the two engage in an argument over club selection that degenerates into chaos, after which they decide their talents are better suited to show business. Lewis does his slapstick thing, Martin croons several tunes, and they duet on the Oscar

nominated "That's Amore." Numerous real-life professional golfers also make cameo appearances, including Ben Hogan, Sam Snead, Byron Nelson, and Julius Boros.
