Did You Know?

Trivia

Timmy Price's house is actually co-writer Tom Coyne's parents' house, where Coyne was living during filming. See more »

Goofs

When Timmy is playing golf with his father and his father is squatting to take a look at his putting line, he say's "Same model putter that Ben Hogan used when he won the Grand Slam". This is historically incorrect because Bobby Jones is the only player to ever win the "Grand Slam". (4 major wins in one season) This happened in 1930 and Bobby Jones retired thereafter. Ben Hogan was one of the best players ever, he came close in 1953 winning 3 out of the 4 majors. He won the Masters, U.S. Open, and The British Open, this is known as the "Hogan Slam" but not the "Grand Slam". See more »

Quotes

Timmy Price: Well, maybe I could hit a few balls up here and you could give me some pointers.
Foster Pearse: Do I *look* like Mr. Miyagi to you? Wax on, wax off. Oh yes, Timmy-san, you hit a few balls, I give you pointers.

The Emotional Compelling Game of Golf
19 November 2005 | by (utah) – See all my reviews

This small movie does big things in an indirect way around the game of golf. Unlike most sports games, this movie isn't about the competition or tournament of golf, but the backstory of golf. Timmy, an adolescent son of a country golf club member, gets an opportunity to experience the game of golf from the inside. He also gets an opportunity to learn from a former amateur champion (played by Gary Sinise). The brief vignettes of Timmy's experiences in a number of difficult situations as well as his tentative associate with a girl named Molly is performed without flair, over-wrought drama. This insightful, experiential, unpretentious sports movie about a boy growing up to find meaning in playing golf is a wonderful, entertaining, and rewarding movie.

While it doesn't attempt to reach the moon, change the world, probe into the depths of the soul, it manages to hit the meaningful level of what living may be about without causing mental headaches, epic dramas, nor lavish designs of grandeur or sharply created realism. In short, A Gentleman's Game is accomplished in a Gentlemen's Approach of the Twenty-First Century - a contemporary narrative look at a old established sport from the inside. Eight out of Ten Stars.
