Toward the beginning of the twentieth-century Harry Vardon (Stephen Dillane) was among the first working-class British golfers to make a name for themselves.  Years later, across the Atlantic in America, a golfer of similar pedigree would struggle for recognition amongst his peers.

Francis Ouimet (Shia LaBeouf) grew up across from a golf course and dreamed of becoming a pro.  His dad scoffed at the idea, and suggested Francis pursue something more practical -- and more specifically, catered to his social class.  Nevertheless Francis would prevail over the 1913 U.S. Open in what many consider the greatest game ever played.
