The Greatest Game Ever Played (2005) [* * * * *]

At a time when golf was only for gentleman, a working-class caddie called Francis Ouimet (the boy who carries the bag) goes on to win the US Open overcoming all odds - the jeers of the rich club members, the obstacles of class, his father's disapproval and the disbelief of the world.

Amazingly, he beats his idol, the world golfing champion, Harry Vardon. The only caddie he could find was a 10 yr old boy called Eddie Lowery and together they make history.

Very inspiring especially for children to see, since you see each of them struggling with their demons as they face the pressure of the game. And the plucky 10 yr old Eddie keeping his head as all others lose theirs!

The words are an encouragement to all, who have opposition from odds, who are not creative.
