An amateur player from a working class family, Francis Ouimet shocked the golf world when at the 1913 U.S. Open, flanked by his 10-year-old caddie, he defeated his idol, the defending British champion Harry Vardon--played by Stephen Dillane. An unlikely match-up--"the ingenue versus the seasoned champ"--theirs was the greatest match the sport had ever known. Caught between a world of hardship and a beckoning life of privilege, Francis needed to prove his unfailing will and ability to make it to the tournament.
