Description

FINAL ROUNDS celebrates a lifetime of golf shared by a father and son who take on a last trip together to the finest courses of England and Scotland. Their relationship is forged on the golf course, and whatever problems they have are worked out while smashing drives and lining up putts. But Jim’s father is 80 years old and just before they leave for a visit to the Scottish links where his father played during the First World War, he finds out his cancer has returned and he only has few months to live. The trip to the Scottish links takes on a new meaning, as they determine to honour their lives and love together (for each other, their families, and for the game). While playing the world-renowned courses as St Andrews and Muirfield, they encounter great golf lore and legend; but more importantly, a son learns the secrets of his father’s past and to admire his father even more than he thought possible. In the process, he takes home some very important lessons about the meaning of family. Written with searing honesty and unbounded wit, FINAL ROUNDS is a tribute to a very special game and the fathers and sons who make it so.
