    Sinopsis

    Sinopsis de: "Claret Dreams"

    In 1889, a young boy receives a complete set of handmade golf clubs from his father's friend, the "Patriarch of Golf," Old Tom Morris. The clubs, imbued with seemingly mystical powers, are passed down through the ensuing generations of the MacCoren family. In 1962, Ian MacCoren qualifies for the British Open Championship using these very clubs. While others scoff at the use of such ancient implements, given the evolution of golf technology, Ian's game makes believers of the golf world. Opponents like Gary Player and Arnold Palmer test the youth's steely nerves as he attempts to accomplish the impossible and win the British Open Championship as an unknown amateur. Even as Ian shocks the world on the golf course, family tragedy and personal disaster offer additional obstacles in Ian's quest for the "Claret Jug." Discover the birth and evolution of golf, the inception and development of the British Open Championship, and grab a front row spot in the gallery for the dramatic conclusion of Claret Dreams.
