synopsis

A father wants only the best for his son, but struggles to guide him in a world that’s changing as fast as the boy himself.
A son blessed with talent and fuelled by ambition, chafes at his father’s commands as he hurtles toward adulthood with all the excitement and adventure of untarnished youth.
In every generation, a torch passes from father to son. And that timeless dynamic is the beating heart of TOMMY’S HONOUR – an intimate, powerfully moving tale of the real-life founders of the modern game of golf.
