Amerikaanse sportfilm uit 2005 van Bill Paxton, met Shia LaBeouf, Stephen Dillane e.a. Gebaseerd op het waargebeurde verhaal van Mark Frost. In 1913, op het U.S. Open golf-toernooi, ziet de getalenteerde arbeidersjongen Francis Ouiet kans te winnen van de grote Britse speler Harry Vardon. Roger Ebert (Chicago Sun-Times,i) geeft 3 (van 5) sterren: 'I am not a golf fan but found 'The greatest game ever played' absorbing all the same, partly because of the human element, partly because Paxton and his technicians have used every trick in the book to dramatize the flight and destination of the golf balls.' Ruthe Stein (San Francisco Chronicle,i): ''The greatest game ever played' could have been a contender (red./ titelpretendent) for greatest sports movie ever made. It tells a whopper (red./ prachtig) golf story, so fanciful that there's a built-in amazement from realizing it's all true.'
