Jones is shown as winning the 1930 British Open with a dramatic bunker shot on the last hole to defeat Walter Hagen by a stroke. Yet Jones' dramatic bunker shot actually came on the 16th hole... Jones won the tournament by two strokes... and not only did Hagen not finish second, he was not even among the top five on the leader board. See more »
This film which carries no studio name could almost have been made by Fox or Warner in the golden age because of craftsmanship;but it tells the truth as they almost never did. It is a shame the people who promoted this so much seem to have missed an opportunity (hopefully the DVD is more successful).Of course release dates and all come into play ;and Caviezel's current fame cuts both ways . But it seems even golfers have ignored this film judging by the poor Box Office.Definitely in the same league as Seabiscuit ; with outstanding performances by all three playing Bobby Jones as well as a wonderful supporting cast . It is a very moving story when told with all the warts and problems to see.
