the open championship,
the royal and ancient golf club of st andrews
Description: Set against the early days of the sport and stunning landscape of Scotland, TOMMY’S HONOUR is based on the intimate and powerfully moving true story of the challenging relationship between “Old” Tom (BAFTA nominee Peter Mullan) and “Young” Tommy Morris (Jack Lowden, DUNKIRK, '71, DENIAL), 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 continued to outshine his father’s accomplishments as founder of the Open Championship in 1860, playing record and as a local caddie master, greenskeeper and club & ball maker. But in contrast to Tommy’s public persona, his personal turmoil ultimately led him to rebel against both the aristocracy who gave him opportunity, led by The Royal and Ancient Golf Club of St Andrews chief Alexander Boothby (Sam Neill, JURASSIC PARK, THE PIANO), and the parents who distained his passionate relationship with his girlfriend-then-wife Meg Drinnen (Ophelia Lovibond, GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXY, MAN UP).
