Inspirational without being too preachy

Will be compared to Karate Kid, Doc Hollywood, the animated Cars and a number of other movies that involve a dispirited youth being sagely counseled by a been there, done that elder. Instead of karate, racing, etc., this movie is centered around golf, so it's philosophical with virtually no violence. This is a G-rated family film, and like many of the other movies mentioned above, has a message that is touching, thoughtful and probably more important than ever in this day and age. Has a great cast led by old pro Robert Duvall, appealing young star Lucas Black and a nice supporting group. Strong religious theme, so could be a major bore if you're an atheist or, for that matter, hate golf.

This movie captivated my attention and I'm not even a golf fan! It was about life and character building and redemption. Robert Duvall and Lucas Black were excellent and they inspired me!

Not a golf fan but this was a great movie which wasn't all about golf? Not too good for children as it is not an action packed movie. My 9 year old slept thru this one! Nice to see how an elderly person can be of help to the younger generation.
