TOMMY’S HONOUR Interview
with Jason Connery who Directed the film Tommys Honour (2016)
TOMMY’S HONOUR is based on the intimate and powerfully moving true story of the challenging relationship between “Old” Tom Morris (BAFTA winner Peter Mullan) and “Young” Tommy Morris (Jack Lowden, DUNKIRK, ’71, DENIAL), the dynamic father-son team who ushered in the modern game of golf.
As their fame grew exponentially, Tom and Tommy, Scotland’s Golf Royalty, were touched by drama and personal tragedy.
At first matching his father’s success, Tommy’s talent and fame grew to outshine his father’s accomplishments as founder of the Open Championship in 1860, his stellar playing record, and his reputation as the local caddie master, greenkeeper and club & ball maker.
