Travis McKinley is an ordinary man living an ordinary life-he has a job he despises, a marriage that has lost its passion, children from whom he feels disconnected, and, at age fifty, a sense that he has accomplished nothing in his life. But one Christmas Day, as Travis plays a round of golf, he finds himself for the first time in the "zone"-playing like a pro. Travis gets so caught up in his excitement that he misses Christmas dinner, an act that pushes his already troubled marriage over the edge. But Travis is soon too busy living his dream to notice. He enters the PGA Senior Open at Pebble Beach & advances to the final round with two of his heroes, Jack Nicklaus & Raymond Floyd. Then, while his wife, his children, & a live television audience watch, a miracle takes place on the 17th green that changes Travis, & his family, forever.
