You can count the number of good golf movies on one hand, but that tally may rise in a few months when Tommy’s Honour is released. Any golf fan worth their salt knows the names Old Tom Morris and Young Tom Morris, but their backstory hasn’t been told widely until now.
The official trailer for Tommy’s Honour, a feature film directed by Jason Connery (Sean’s son) based on the book of the same name authored by Kevin Cook, was released this week.
The film, which stars Jack Lowden and Sam Neill, is based on the true story of Old Tom Morris and Young Tom Morris, the Scottish father-son duo who are credited with helping found the modern game of golf. You can’t judge a book by its cover or a film by its trailer, but this preview has us jazzed: Tommy’s Honour looks to be destined to join the all-too-short list of must-see golf films.
The picture is scheduled to be released on April 14, the Friday after Masters week.
