Bobby Jones: Stroke of Genius
That should drive him nuts with jealousy....
This biopic takes a look at an amazing golfer, who, in 1930, won all four major titles in the same year, and as an amateur to boot! He was plagued by pain, yet felt driven to prove himself, which he did, with consumate ease. The film takes a look at his childhood and golfing career, and the influences his family had on him. His other talents included speaking six languages, being a qualified lawyer as well as holding degrees in classics and engineering.
