The Legend of Bagger Vance (2000)
J. Michael Moncrief: Hardy Greaves
Rannulph Junuh : Grow up Hardy!
Hardy Greaves : It ain't time for me to grow up, Mr. Junuh.
Rannulph Junuh : You're daddy is out sweeping streets because he took every last dime he had, and used it to pay up every man and woman he owed and every business who worked for him, instead of declaring bankruptcy like everyone else in town, including your best friend Wilbur Charles' dad, Raymond, which is why he's able to sit around all day long on his dignity! You're daddy stared adversity in the eye, Hardy. And he beat it back with a broom.
Rannulph Junuh : You really love this game, don't you?
Hardy Greaves : It's the greatest game there is.
Rannulph Junuh : You really think so?
Hardy Greaves : Ask anybody. It's fun. It's hard and you stand out there on that green, green grass, and it's just you and the ball and there ain't nobody to beat up on but yourself; just like Mister Newnan keeps hittin' himself with the golf club every time he gets angry. He's broken his toe three times on account of it. It's the only game I know that you can call a penalty on yourself, if you're honest, which most people are. There just ain't no other game like it.
Hardy Greaves : I heard my dad say that you won every golf tournament there ever was in the South and how you hit a drive so long that they made you stop playin for 20 minutes just to measure it for a record... and how you used to swing righty, but you were in the woods once by this tree so there was no room to swing righty... so you borrowed somebody's lefty club and hit the ball six inches from the hole...
