Misguided values
I found this movie to be completely objectionable. Throughout the movie Ulrich's character is portrayed as being selfish and self absorbed. I never felt that. Here is a man who is pursuing his lifelong dream of being a professional golfer and nobody in is family is the least bit supportive. They are angry when he makes the tour. When he calls to say he has won $15,000 that the family desperately needs at his very first tournament his wife is furious because he isn't listening to her story about fixing the roof. Well, one person is seeing their lifelong dream realized, the other has just successfully followed the directions from a Time/Life instructional manual. Whose story should take precedence? I don't know what the opposite of misogyny is - but this movie qualifies. There is nothing shameful about following your dreams. If the roles had been reversed he would have been an awful man for not supporting her. The male of the species cannot win in TV movie of the week land. I will never watch another one.
