In the pantheon of golf cinema, Caddyshack and Tin Cup loom large. A new golf movie aims to join the ranks of America’s most beloved films about the ancient game. Swing Away stars American Pie‘s Shannon Elizabeth as a professional golfer and Seinfeld‘s John O’Hurley as an American developer.
Elizabeth plays a pro golfer named Zoe Papdopoulos, who travels back to her grandparents’ Greek village in search of solace after she is suspended from play following an on-course meltdown. She forms a bond with a 10-year-old aspiring golfer and defends the village against O’Hurley’s character’s greedy motives.
The movie will be released in March 2017.
