I expected a movie about golf. While it was it is more of watching a kid get a private lesson. I've seen better. B-.

"Michael you have to remember your in the land where all these rules were invented. It's the only way you can play in the kingdom." Michael Murphy (Gamble) is a philosophy student that is searching for himself. His one real love is golf and before he decided to give it up forever he stops by Scotland to play in the famous "Links of Burningbush." I have said this before but I am a sucker for sports movies. Any kind and golf is no different. I really enjoyed "Greatest Game Ever Played" & "Bobby Jones". The recent "Seven Days In Utopia" was also fantastic so my expectations were high for this one. While the movie itself is not bad and the scenery is pretty I was very disappointed. This movie is more of watching the young boy Michael meeting a golf pro named Shivas Irons (O'Hara) who proceeds to teach him about the game. The movie then becomes watching Michael get an hour private lesson about golf. I understand the book is great, but I wasn't that entertained by this movie. It's not bad, I was just hoping for something different. Overall, not bad, but more of movie about the rules and philosophy of golf then the sport itself. I give it a B-.
