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

Beautifully filmed and acted.
17 September 2005 | by kenmh101See 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.
