His ability made him a star, but it was his passion that made him a legend. Robert "Bobby" Tyre Jones, Jr. (Jim Caviezel, The Passion Of The Christ) was perhaps the most naturally gifted golfer in the history of the game. Battling a disabling illness and a volcanic temper, Jones struggled through a succession of early defeats to reach the pinnacle of his sport - becoming, at age 28, the only man to ever win the coveted Grand Slam of golf. But it was his devotion to his wife Mary (Claire Forlani, Meet Joe Black) that led to the astonishing announcement that shocked the world, in this inspirational true story of one of sport's greatest icons.
