For some athletes, the ultimate win comes through a stroke of luck, but for Robert Tyre Jones, Jr, 'Bobby Jones,' it was truly a stroke of genius. His natural skill and uncanny passion for the game of golf earned him the title of "The Best Golfer in the World." But it was his style that set him apart. A dashing smile. Impeccable integrity. Unrivaled intensity. Legendary wit and intelligence. An epic passion for life, born out of adversity. For a brief moment in time, this incredible man became an American hero. Bobby Jones - Stroke of Genius tells the story of that man.
Overcoming a sickly early childhood, Bobby Jones' earned recognition as a sports phenomenon by the age of 14. Triumphing over his own spirited temper, self-imposed perfectionism and the barbs of public scrutiny, he often endured pain and grueling physical strain to achieve victory on the golf course. Of the 13 titles that he collected during his short career, four of them - the U.S. Amateur, U.S. Open, the British Amateur and the coveted British Open - were won within four months of the same year, earning him the title of Grand Slam Champion, a record that has never been broken. The next year he retired from competitive golf. He was 28.
The film stars Jim Caviezel (THE PASSION OF THE CHRIST), Claire Forlani (THE ROCK), Jeremy Northam (THE SINGING DETECTIVE), and making their screen film debut are Devon Gearhart as 6-8 year-old Bobby Jones and Thomas Lewis as 14 year-old Bobby.
