This Spoils the Ending
In the Book In the Movie
   Francis continues to excel as a golfer after his failure to qualify for the US Amateur. Francis is depicted as not completing in any golf matches after he fails to qualify for the US Amateur in 1910.
   Ted Ray hit Wilfred Reid repeatedly when insulted at dinner during the US Open. He received unfavorable attention from golf fans afterwards. Ted Ray hit Reid once and suffers no bad publicity.
   Harry Vardon has a large mustache. He is clean shaven.
   Harry Vardon's putting suffered after a bout of tuberculosis. Harry's short putting is shown as being affected by a tremor in his hand, but is not explained why.
   There is much history on Vardon's life and marriage/family. Nothing about his wife or brother, very little about his life prior to the US Open.
