“I’m thrilled to be part of a film that will impact many, many people (not just golf lovers),” said Pat Boone. “We are all in need of second chances in life and you never know how God may be planning to redeem your story.”
An intensely driven CEO, Paul McAlister is a success in everything — except life. Separated from his wife and estranged from his son, Paul’s steely-eyed focus remains solely on his next boardroom mega-deal. But like an errant tee-shot on a difficult hole, Paul’s life could use a do-over … a “mulligan.”
With the help of a new friend known as “the Old Pro,” Paul is challenged to focus more on his priorities and purpose than pitching and putting. Desperate to make something good of a situation gone bad, Paul discovers he needs the ultimate mulligan.
“From our filming location at The Currahee Club to our incredible partners including PING, Titleist, FootJoy, Payne Stewart Golf Camps and Arnold Palmer Drink Company, this is the ultimate family-friendly golf film,” said producer Rick Eldridge. “On top of that, THE MULLIGAN is a great reminder of the importance of our most meaningful relationships, beginning with our families.”
Based on the popular book by Wally Armstrong and Ken Blanchard, THE MULLIGAN naturally weaves heartwarming life lessons inspired by the game of golf into the story. The film sports an all-star cast, including Eric Close (NASHVILLE, AMERICAN SNIPER) as Paul, Pat Boone as the Old Pro, and PGA golfer Tom Lehman and legendary broadcaster Jim Nantz as themselves. THE MULLIGAN (written by Rick Eldridge, Jimmy Hager, Randall Eldridge, and Roland Eldridge) is an inspiring reminder that second chances are only one step away.
