An amateur player from a working class family, Francis Ouimet (Shia LaBeouf) goes all the way to the 1913 U.S. Open, flanked by his 10-year-old caddie, to play against his idol, the defending British champion Harry Vardon (Stephen Dillane). An unlikely match-up - "the ingénue versus the seasoned champ" - theirs was the greatest match the sport had ever known. Caught between a world of hardship and a beckoning life of privilege, Francis needed to prove his unfailing will and ability to make it to the tournament.
