It is the summer of 1985, and Timmy Price is a golf caddy at his father's exclusive country club. Timmy has quite a swing himself, his mastery of the game inspires awe among the membership and envy among his peers, including fellow caddy and friend Jamie Byrne. But under pressure from his well-meaning, self-made father, as well as the privileged club members, Timmy soon realizes that it isn't easy being both a rising star and just another looper in the caddy hole. Under the tutelage of enigmatic guru Foster Pearse, Timmy hopes to develop a game that will make him the state junior Champion. But his time with Pearse, and Jamie's mysterious disappearance, help Timmy realize that life's real importance lies not in wealth, status symbols, or the ability to fire low golf scores. He comes to play the game for purity, not prizes, and in doing so discovers the integrity and humility that bespeak a real gentleman.
"A Gentleman's Game" is an unforgettable story of fathers and sons, class and the pressure to succeed, sportsmanship, friendship, and the beguiling and bedeviling game of golf.Performed by Dylan Baker
