Storyline

Robert Tyre Jones, Jr., aka "Bobby Jones" rises from complete obscurity to become a golfing legend. Jones overcomes his own fierce temper, intense passion, and perfectionist tendencies to master the game and win the Grand Slam, the U.S., British, and Amateur Opens in golf, a feat unequaled even today. But it is Jones's style, personality, and character that separate him from the other professionals in his field. When Jones realizes that his unparalleled success may be destroying those he loves he's presented with an astounding proposition, one that shocks the world. Written by IMDb Editors

Goofs

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 »

Beautifully filmed and acted.
17 September 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Beautifully executed film with graceful presentation of the storyline. Acting really evokes the period with authenticity. Clothing, props, cars, etc. all are time appropriate.

Lovely cinematography with beautiful scenery both in the United States and in Great Britain. The scenes shot on the ocean liner (which one? Queen Mary??) seem really authentic.

I really enjoyed this film more than any I have seen in the last couple of years(it sort reminds me of a 'low key' version of "Chariots of Fire"). The soundtrack was quite good as well.

I would highly recommend this film to anyone who would like to enjoy a more cerebral (not a film loaded with gratuitous action)experience.
