Based on the powerfully moving true story of the challenging relationship between “Old” Tom and “Young” Tommy Morris, TOMMY’S HONOUR recounts the life of the dynamic father-son team who ushered in the modern game of golf.

As their fame grew, Tom and Tommy, considered by many to be Scotland’s Golf royalty, were touched by drama and personal tragedy. At first matching his father’s success, Tommy’s talent and fame grew to outshine his father’s accomplishments and respect as founder of the Open Championship in 1860 with a series of his own triumphs. But in contrast to Tommy’s public persona, his personal turmoil ultimately led him to rebel against both the aristocracy who gave him opportunity, and the parents who shunned his passionate relationship with his wife.

Directed by Jason Connery, and starring Peter Mullan (War Horse), Jack Lowden (’71), Ophelia Lovibond (Guardians of the Galaxy) and Sam Neill (Jurassic Park), this poignant drama serves as both a deeply affecting tribute to a true sporting pioneer, and a testament to the unique bond between father and son.
