    From the Chicago Sun-Times:

    There wasn't enough golf in the film "Bobby Jones: Stroke of Genius'' that opens Friday to suit me, but the cast is excellent, the settings authentic and, allowing for the inevitable fictionalized bits -- Walter Hagen did not play in the 1930 British Open, the third leg of Jones' Grand Slam -- it is fairly accurate.
    Particularly fine are Brett Rice as Jones' father and Alistair Begg, a minister from Cleveland who somehow ended up playing Jones' boyhood teacher, Stewart Maiden, in his first movie role . James Caviezel plays Jones, and he must have been happy the film ignores Jones' last 20 agonizing years. All Caviezel, who was last seen hanging from a cross, suffers in this one are varicose veins and a stomachache. ..."

    Interesting...singer Steve Camp posts on a radio forum that I frequent, and while he gave a good review to the movie, he says Jim Caviezel's golf swing is less than professional-looking. And he doesn't think Alistair Begg should be acting:

    "He is a pastor, not an actor; he should remain in the
    &gt; pulpit fulfilling his God-given calling and leave the entertainment to
    &gt; those who have no other ambition."

    Camp post makes as much sense as if I said,

    "Steve Camp is a singer, not a poster; he should remain in the music studio fulfilling his God-given calling and leave the posting to
    those who have no other ambition."
