A golf movie. Not words that should really belong together, but let’s not get stuck on that bit of rough. What we have here is a historical romance, between a father and a son, a man and a woman and a species and a sport.

Thankfully, Connery has kept the story’s human side grounded in the real world, and those are the only stakes that matter.

Tommy's Honour scores a hole in one with its unpacking of the class wars at play.

Pleasant and watchable, perhaps, rather than brilliant.

It all feels a little bit like a sporting episode of Upstairs, Downstairs and comes off as overly twee to really compel.

The performances are desultory, the musical score bullying and the drama - aside from the game-changing placement of inconvenient shrubbery - as predictable as Tom senior's steadily sprouting beard.

It's surprisingly affecting, but there's a tendency to telegraph ... pivotal emotional moments that in a way lessens their effect. It's a tribute to the film's overall craft and, especially, its cast, that it's as much a winner as it is.

They [Jack Lowden and Peter Mullan] bring pathos and at least some zest to a film that might have got lost in the rough without them.

An engrossing and accessible celebration of the game's modern origins, enhanced by striking locations and a standout cast, led by Scottish actors Peter Mullan and Jack Lowden.

Telling an unfamiliar tale in a highly predictable manner, this is a laudable, but lightweight tribute to golf's founding fathers.
