Synopsis

When the eternally optimistic Maurice Flitcroft loses his long-held job as a crane operator in Cumbria, he makes the decision to change careers entirely. After seeing a golf game on his new television, he accidentally enters the British Open as a professional and proceeds to shoot the worst round of golf ever seen at the tournament. Unphased by his newfound fame and consistently prohibited by the condescending golfing world from improving his game, Maurice becomes determined to enter the tournament again under a different name. Although his ever-adoring wife encourages him throughout his endeavors, he finds that his eldest son might not be as supportive, and a rift begins to form between them. Delightfully eccentric, The Phantom of the Open is a funny but sincere film about ignoring the hurdles in your way and forging your own, distinctive path to success.
