The greatest game ever played - Shia LaBeouf, Stephen Dillane, Justin Ashforth, Bill Paxton

Threat advisory: Under evaluation

Movie propaganda

An amateur player from a working class family, Francis Ouimet (Shia LaBeouf) - shocked the golf world when at the 1913 US Open, flanked by his 10-year-old caddie, he defeated his idol, the defending British champion Harry Vardon (Stephen Dillane). An unlikely match-up - "the ingénu versus the seasoned champ" - theirs was the greatest match the sport had ever known.

Caught between a world of hardship and a beckoning life of privilege, Francis needed to prove his unfailing will and ability to make it to the tournament. Elias Koteas plays Francis' tough, hard-working father. Newcomer Peyton List is Sarah Wallis, the beautiful young woman, who catches Francis' heart. Josh Flitter is Eddie Lowery, the pint-sized caddie who helps Francis find his way through the troublesome fairways to victory.

Based on a true story.
