UK film starring Mark Rylance and Sally Hawkins about Maurice Flitcroft, a terrible golfer who did a bandit into the British Open. Rylance is a great actor, more known for dramatic roles (He was really good in Wolf Hall), you probably remember him from Bridge of Spies. Sally Hawkins is an amazing actress as well. Because the golfer he's portraying, well, sucks, he doesn't have to learn to make a decent looking swing, lol. Never heard of this guy before now, I guess UK folks are more than familiar with him. Looks like a whimsical feel good comedy, along the lines of The Full Monty. It's screening in the UK will probably get to the US in a couple of months. I'm in a city where foreign movies screen before most areas, so if I get requests for a review, I'll write one or maybe someone in the UK can watch it.

Here's the UK trailer looks like, the US trailer I think is not as good, underneath.

I think this is the US trailer.


Mark Rylance, Sally Hawkins, and Rhys Ifans star in the new film about the golfer's life.

Kill slow play. Allow walking. Reduce ineffective golf instruction. Use environmentally friendly course maintenance.

If it shows up on a streaming service, I may watch it.  I do recall news articles on the original incident at one of the 1976 Open qualifying rounds.  Things were a lot looser back in those days.

So this will be screening in the US June 3 or 10, depending on where you live I guess.

Thanks for the update, I’ve been patiently waiting for it to be out in the US.

    • Day 173: 6/13/24 Dealing with tennis elbow. Limited to putting through 50 mm gates tonight.
    • Day 43 (13 Jun 24) - 2nd day at resort, LegoLand Fl, so another day of a using the mini golf course to work on pace and break on the “greens”….
    • Get on a launch monitor to get some actual info?
    • The courses played +3.2 relative to par on the first day.  That is why Rory's and Cantlay's strokes gained were +8.2 better than average. They played stupidly good on a very tough test. It happens. Some people can have one day of good golf. There are 4 rounds. just for some perspective and to put some FACTS behind what you said.  The Memorial played +1.5 relative to par. So the first round of The US Open played 2x as hard as the Memorial did.  The Masters played +1.91 relative to par.  The RBC played +0.29 relative to par. The Charles Swab played +0.82 relative to par.  If that continues it would be the toughest test of golf by like 1.3 strokes. Nearly 68% tougher.
