The Match is a barnburner of a story crafted by Mark Frost, the famed screenwriter and author of The Greatest Game Ever Played about amatuer Francis Ouimet’s unlikely 1913 U.S. Open win over the game’s best professionals. And it is with Ouimet’s caddie Eddie Lowery, now a full grown businessmen and millionaire, that The Match begins. Lowery was a booster for amateur golf and boasted to fellow millionaire George Coleman that 2 of his employees, who happen to have been some of the best amateur golfers of the time, could beat any player in a game of best-ball. Coleman took this as a bet and showed up with the greatest professional golfers of the day, Ben Hogan and Byron Nelson, to compete against Lowery's team. What occurred next is truly the stuff of legend.
