The golfing community could really use some good press right now. No way the entire community wouldn't embrace a really well written golf script, that would be nothing but positive for the game.

Step one: somehow have the script get 400th place in a writing contest and then sit back and watch the offers pour in.

No, that wouldn't be a realistic movie about golf. You would need to do something like "Vegas Knights" --

-- and show both the positive and negative. That would make it more realistic.

Actually, if I was a movie producer who was a big golfing enthusiast, I would love to see a golfing script that finished somewhere between 180th and 400th in a contest with 3,800 entries. And if it also did well in a couple of other contests I would really want to see it.

Very interesting article from ESPN The Magzine

A Life On The Line


For four decades, other gamblers have tried to be Billy Walters while investigators have tried to bring him down. And for four decades, the world's most successful sports bettor has outrun them all.
