Bobby Jones: Stroke of Genius

Synopsis: Robert Tyre Jones, Jr., aka "Bobby Jones" rises from complete obscurity to become a golfing legend. Jones overcomes his own fierce temper, intense passion, and perfectionist tendencies to master the game and win the Grand Slam, the U.S., British, and Amateur Opens in golf, a feat unequaled even today. But it is Jones's style, personality, and character that separate him from the other professionals in his field. When Jones realizes that his unparalleled success may be destroying those he loves he's presented with an astounding proposition, one that shocks the world.

- Great round, Stewart. Terrific.

- Thank you.

Well done.

Tell me, Mr. Maiden, how did they decide...

that there should be 18 holes

in a round of golf?

Ma'am, a long time ago at St. Andrew's...

they had a meeting

to try and figure that out.

One of the clan stood up and said:

"There's 18 shots in a bottle of whiskey...

"and I reckon when the bottle's empty,

the round is done. "

Grandpa!

Be careful.

Hello, Bobby.

Son, you are growing like a weed.

- You get bigger every time I see you.

- Papa, how nice of you to visit.

I had to come up on business.

Meeting some buyers here from New York

in the morning.

Is this the way you spend your Sabbath?

- Setting a bad example for your son?

- Getting Little Bob outdoors...

has done wonders for his health.

Excuse me, Papa,

I have to go inside and change.

Come along, Robert.

Go upstairs and dress for dinner.

You spend so much time playing golf

out there, I can't help but wonder...

if it's for your son's health

or your own amusement.

Papa, I meet my biggest clients here.

The Coca-Cola people are keeping me

so busy I'm looking to take in a new partner.

And why?

Because I play golf with Asa Kindler

and Bob Woodruff.

So you're telling me that it's not

your merit as a lawyer...

that's advancing your career?

How encouraging.

Grandpa, look at my windmill.

I built it myself.

That's just fine, Bobby.

Maybe you'll grow up to be an engineer...

and not fritter away your time

playing worthless ball games.

Son of a bitch!

Isn't that your house over there?

I bet your poor mother's missing you.

Don't you think?

Go on, now. Go home.

Red, do you have to play golf?

- What about me?

- Take two weeks off from the game.

And then give it up altogether.

What can I do for you, laddie?

- What are those?
