21 July 2011 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Although Ford couldn't play golf worth a lick, Hogan himself supervised the golf scenes (and much else). He slyly inserted rare golf lessons into the film, but as with anything Hogan you've got to look very carefully. Also, there is rare footage of Hogan colleagues Demaret, Snead, and Middlecoff. Forget the fact that the film is Hollywood treacle. This is a treasure for modern-day golfers attempting to understand Hogan's mastery of the golf swing.

The film still hasn't been released on DVD or Blu-Ray, and is rarely if ever seen on cable. The greatest golf film ever made gathers dust as Hogan's legions desperately search for more information about the man who understood more about golf than anyone has ever known about any sport (except, perhaps, for Ted Williams).
