Quotes

[first lines]
Johnny Crawford: How can a game have such an effect on a man's soul? The way I see it, how can it not? You don't chose the game, it choses you. And when it does, life and golf become forever connected. That's how it was for a young man named Luke Chisholm.

Entertaining family movie that deserves to be rated for what it really was, a good wholesome family movie...
3 September 2011 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I just returned from watching this movie with my wife and children. We all like playing golf, but even if we hadn't, we would have enjoyed the movie all the same. It's not about golf (although I feel it portrays the constant battle that a golfer has with controlling the heart, staying calm and trusting your gut, etc), it's about one man's journey. It's about him putting events in his life into perspective, and understanding what's really important. I for one don't see an issue with this; in fact, I believe there should be more movies like this one.

This movie will sadly be underrated by some people with different expectations for this movie. Please rate it for the genre/type of movie that it is.

This is a simple, yet thought-provoking movie that will, at times, evoke emotions that could help people on the next step of their own journey. It primarily is a drama, but contains it's fair share of suspense, sports action, and romance. There are several funny scenes that warm the heart.

I highly recommend this movie if you want to be entertained, if you have an open mind, and if you don't mind thinking about your life and the future. This is a great heart-warming, feel-good movie. It makes a healthy change from the majority of movies produced recently.
