A dozen years later, a young American, Francis Ouimet, fights against the same prejudice, as well as his own father's disdain, for a chance to participate in the U.S. Open against his idol -- Harry Vardon. The struggles of both men for acceptance provides the background for an amazing contest of skills.

Golf is much too serious of a game to have a super hyped soundtrack so to no ones surprise we have a strong background score to guide you through each hole of this game.


We've got all the stats right here.

  1. Filmed at the Kanawaki Golf Club outside Montreal, Quebec. The producers had the white clubhouse painted yellow for the film. Members liked the change so much they kept the color after filming.

  2. The real Francis Ouimet and Eddie Lowery remained life long friends. When Ouimet died in 1967, Lowery was one of the pall-bearers.

  3. In reality, Ted Ray wasn't anywhere near as obese as the actor who portrayed him.
