Rub of the Green
Bo Benson sacrificed a promising golf career in order to help his family manage rustic Chicken Ranch Golf Course.
After his father dies unexpectedly, he and brother Jess inherit the debt-ridden operation. Six years into a relentless drought that has decimated their course, they face a daunting decision: sell the property below value or hold on to their heritage despite the likelihood of imminent foreclosure.
Complications arise when a wealthy businessman inserts himself into their lives. The lure of big money causes an insurmountable rift between the siblings as they consider the mendacious stranger's lucrative offer to acquire their property.
Amidst the turmoil, Bo is presented with an opportunity to revive his dream after a record-setting round on the Web.com tour, only to discover there are no guarantees in the game of golf.
With conflicting loyalties, he must weigh financial need, preservation of his family's legacy, and his enduring love for the sport.
