TOMMY'S HONOUR

In every generation, a torch passes from father to son. And that timeless dynamic is the beating heart of Tommy's Honour – an intimate, powerfully moving tale of the real-life founders of the modern game of golf.

Tommy’s Honour is based on the true story of the challenging relationship between “Old” Tom (Peter Mullan) and “Young” Tommy Morris (Jack Lowden), the dynamic father-son team who ushered in the modern game of golf. 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 relationship with his wife (Ophelia Lovibond).
