The Special also airs on Golf Channel March 29th at 4:30 PM EST/3:30 CST
Gutta Percha Productions LLC is pleased to announce the special broadcast of “Far and Sure: An Intimate Behind the Scenes Look at the Making of the Feature Film Tommy’s Honour” on NBC, Saturday, March 25th immediately preceding NBC’s coverage of the WGC-Dell Technologies Match Play Championship at 1:30 PM EST (12:30pm CST). The special takes an in-depth look into the making of the award-winning feature film, Tommy’s Honour, based on the 2007 Herbert Warren Wind USGA Book of the Year of the same name. The “Making Of” special includes gorgeous footage of Scotland; interviews with the cast, director Jason Connery, producers and key crew. This inside glimpse will allow viewers to experience the fine details and creative elements giving authenticity to the golf scenes and overall look and feel of the film. PGA Tour superstar Jordan Spieth and his dad Shawn are dressed in the wardrobe of the “Morris era,” and play with replica hickory clubs and Gutta Percha balls. Producer Keith Bank noted, “It was both interesting and enlightening to see a player of Jordan’s caliber swinging the hickory clubs while dressed in the confining coat and garb of the day. He said he gained just a little more respect for the players of the Morris era”. Be sure to tune in to hear their commentary about what it would have been like to play in the era that ushered in the modern game of golf.
The film will be released nationwide in theaters by Roadside Attractions on April 14th. For more information and to view the movie trailer, visit www.TommysHonour.com.
