For Cecil Burton and his father, golf isn't just a sport -- it's a way of life, a code of honor, even a religion. Along his path to becoming a professional golfer, we see Cecil's turbulent life unfold: his coming of age in a time of segregation and discrimination, his generational struggles with a demanding father, his first love and eventual divorce, all leading up to what may be his final round.
