The star of cult golfing movie CADDYSHACK blames the sport for leaving him with a permanent pain in the neck.
Michael O'Keefe, who played caddy Danny Noonan in the 1980 comedy, admits he wasn't a golf fan when he landed the lead in the all-star film - but he became a player after the movie.
And his love for the game has left him with a painful handicap.
He tells WENN, "Ironically I didn't get into golf until I was much older and got injured as a result about two years ago.
"I now have herniated discs in my neck from swinging the club and I don't play anymore."
Take a look back at October's inaugural event.
The film is expected to continue without Mendes' involvement.
