Based on the true story of Robert Tyre Jones, Jr., who 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 wins 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.

Directed by Rowdy Herrington in 2003, this American docudrama depicts the life of Bobby Jones, an American amateur golfer who became one of the most influential figures in the history of the sport.
A lawyer by profession, he founded and helped design the Augusta National Golf Club, and co-founded the Masters Tournament.
The innovations that he introduced at the Masters have been copied by virtually every professional golf tournament in the world.
It is a unique film that delves into the personality and character that separate him from the other professionals in his field.

It is one of the most sweet movie I have seen with great acting performance with sensitivity, Genuine human interactions . Great portrayal of the genius, intelligent, great character of golfing legend : Bobby Jones including his loving relationship with his wife who stood with him always in bad time and good time. Worthwhile to take the time to watch. I enjoyed it very much from the beginning to the end.
