Costner plays Roy "Tin Cup" McAvoy, a Picasso with a wedge and General Custer when the odds are long and a difficult shot can be transformed into an impossible one. Coming off the epic "Waterworld," Costner re-teams with Ron Shelton, for whom he previously starred in "Bull Durham." Costner has also recently starred in "A Perfect World" with Clint Eastwood and in the title role of Lawrence Kasdan's "Wyatt Earp." The Oscar-winning producer-director and star of "Dances With Wolves" recently produced and hosted the television mini-series "500 Nations." His other major film roles include "Field of Dreams," "The Untouchables," "Robin Hood: Prince of Thieves," "JFK" and "The Bodyguard."

Rene Russo plays Dr. Molly Griswold, a neophyte psychologist who believes she can help Roy get his game together -- until she learns that the aim of his "game" is getting together with her. Russo can currently be seen starring in "Get Shorty" with Danny DeVito and John Travolta, after starring with Dustin Hoffman and Morgan Freeman in the box-office hit "Outbreak." She has also starred in "Lethal Weapon 3," "In the Line of Fire" and "Major League."

Don Johnson stars as Tin Cup's longtime rival, David Simms, a PGA hotshot who represents everything Tin Cup detests -- including, perhaps, success. Johnson gained fame on television's "Miami Vice" and has starred in the features "Born Yesterday" and "Guilty As Sin." Among his other films are "The Hot Spot," "Dead-Bang," "Sweethearts Dance" and "Paradise." Johnson also currently stars in the title role of the new television series "Nash Bridges."
