Tommy's Honour

Rated PG 117 min. 2017

Set against the early days of the sport and stunning landscape of Scotland, the 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 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 the aristocracy who gave him opportunity, led by The Royal and Ancient Golf Club of St. Andrews chief Alexander Boothby, and the parents who shunned his passionate relationship with his girlfriend-then-wife Meg Drinnen
