Being an avid golfer and fan of sports biographies, I enjoyed watching this film quite a bit. Though the story is predictable and by-the-numbers, it doesn't take away from the extraordinary story of Bobby Jones and his legacy. Caviezel is great as Jones and really nails the swing mechanics that made the golfer so famous. I also enjoyed Malcolm McDowell's performance as O.B. Keeler, the local sportscaster who followed Jones throughout his entire career. Overall this is a very informative and inspiring story about one of the greatest golfers, and all-around gentleman, to ever play the game.

Bobby Jones was a great golfer and person. His love for the game prevented him from making it a life sustaining profession. He never took money from playing the game. He certainly had his demons to overcome, temper. and health issues, being a couple. He was the best. I loved the movie.

Classic golf movie for the golfer in your life. Beautifully shot, memorable characters, all based on a true story of course.

Movie is excellent and very informative. I never heard of Bobby Jones so the movie was educational as well.

This is a good movie. Not just about Bobby but also about some history of golf and Augusta.

I had the pleasure of seeing this movie at its premiere in NYC and learning more about the making of the film. The film itself is well done and gives you a real sense of the character of Bob Jones. He is a man that overcame his own problems through discipline, strength of character, and determination. No excuses, just do it. Lessons most of us need to practice!
But the story behind the story is just as inspiring. The independent film made by the Bobby Jones Film Foundation was made on a shoestring budget yet has continued to give and raise money for charities. The foundation believes in the philanthropic legacy of the Jones family - there's more to life that money and winning championships. Bobby Jones was diagnosed and suffered from syringomyelia - a painful and degenerative spinal disorder that some 240,000 Americans suffer from.
The American Syringomyelia Alliance Project (ASAP) is a non-profit charity supporting research and education for people affected by syringomyelia. The Jones family and the Bobby Jones Film Foundation are generously supporting ASAP as well as other charities. Bobby Jones chose to make the best of his life despite syringomyelia - through his continuing legacy, ASAP is improving the lives of those with syringomyelia today. Go see this film and be prepared to be inspired.

This is a really good story about the golfer Bobby Jones! The struggle that Bobby has with his personal demons and his triumph over them and golf in the end is just heart warming and there's a sweet little love story to wrap it up all nice and perty. Jim Caviezel is great as Bobby. But my biggest shock, delightful surprise really about the movie was when I first heard the familiar Irish accent of Pastor Alistair Begg then saw him play Bobby's golf coach, Madison. I've listened to Pastor Alistair Begg's sermons in the past and knew he was pretty conservative so to see him act in a Hollywood film was pleasantly surprising. Overall, great movie, you won't be disappointed if you purchase.
