In 1977 at Turnberry, Tom Watson and Jack Nicklaus played out the ‘Duel in the Sun,’ widely acknowledged as the greatest Open finish of them all. In 2016, on the same Ayrshire coastline at Royal Troon, Henrik Stenson and Phil Mickelson engaged in another epic duel at The 145th Open that stands alongside the Watson-Nicklaus clash as one of the greatest ever witnessed. 'Duel of the ‘Sons' tells the captivating story of a battle to be crowned 'Champion Golfer of the Year' featuring two popular veterans - one chasing a dream, the other determined to be reunited with the Claret Jug. Playing virtually flawless golf alongside each other over the final two rounds, the pair separated themselves from the rest of the field as Zach Johnson put up a stout defence and a new crowd favourite emerged in Andrew ‘Beef’ Johnston, who built a warm bond with the adoring galleries. Stenson eventually emerged triumphant by three shots to become the first-ever 'Champion Golfer of the Year' from Sweden, shattering scoring records in the process. Enhanced by exclusive interviews with all of the lead characters in this compelling drama, the official film of The 145th Open captures the story of an Open that is never to be forgotten.
