In 1976 a completely unknown “golfer” enters the British Open qualifying round. Maurice Flitcroft is unique, optimistic, unstoppable and…has never played the game. The golf establishment is horrified. A crane operator, he reasons that practice is all and embarks on a real life journey backed by his family, friends and then, with enthusiasm, the British public.

"Brit sporting underdog movie right on par"
"It does exactly what you expect it will in the most familiar, comforting manner imaginable. It earns the politest of golf claps."
