New Golf Movie: Tommy's Honour

Posted on February 23, 2017 by Daniel Pusilo | 0 comments

If you enjoy a great golf flick as much as I do, then mark your calendars for the long awaited movie, TOMMY’S HONOUR that is set to open in theaters across the country on April 14th. 

Set against the early days of the sport and stunning landscape of Scotland, this film is based on the intimate and powerfully moving true story of the challenging relationship between “Old” Tom Morris and “Young” Tommy Morris, the dynamic father-son team who ushered in the modern game of golf.

As their fame grew exponentially, Tom and Tommy, Scotland’s Golf Royalty, were touched by drama and personal tragedy. At first matching his father’s success, Tommy’s talent and fame grew to outshine his father’s accomplishments as the founder of the Open Championship in 1860, his stellar playing record, and his reputation as the local caddie master, greenskeeper and club & ball maker. In contrast to his public persona, Tommy’s inner turmoil ultimately led him to rebel against both the aristocracy who gave him opportunity, led by The Royal and Ancient Golf Club of St. Andrews chief Alexander Boothby, and against the parents who shunned his passionate relationship with his girlfriend-then-wife Meg Drinnen.
