A night of teenage passion leads to an unplanned pregnancy followed by a lower middle-class struggle to make ends meet. Like most mothers, Rayelene Purler envisions great things for her child. In an attempt to introduce her stuttering son to a slice of life the family can ill afford, she arranges for free summer instructional lessons at Prairie Winds Golf Course on the east side of St. Louis. After the fi rst ball is struck, head pro J Dub Schroeder senses a child prodigy in his midst. The lad soon becomes known as Opur for his propensity to sink putts with an old, worn-out putter that was gathering dust in the lost-and-found barrel. Tragedy at home, a future without aim and an unexpected sudden love interest color Opur’s journey. J Dub mentors the young man and encourages him to use the principles in the game of golf and apply them to everyday life. Follow the action as a young underdog perseveres and fi ghts for his dream on the hallowed grounds of America’s greatest golfi ng event—The Classic.
