Pop Quiz, Hotshot: Did you know that Bill Murray, Brian Doyle-Murray and director Harold Ramis were all experienced caddies from their youth? It’s true! In addition, the roles of Bill Murray, Chevy Chase and Rodney Dangerfield were initially supposed to be much smaller in the film but their constant improvising was so funny Harold Ramis expanded their roles to be much more prolific.
