Overview

Lifelong friends Nick and Easy love both golf and a serious wager. Their shared passion moves beyond the extreme when a drunken bar bet results in a far-fetched scheme: playing head-to-head in every state across America as the ultimate measure to determine the better golfer. Only their self-styled, cross-country championship quickly takes a series of unexpected turns.

As their three-year journey to golf's grandest courses unfolds, an unexpected cancer diagnosis threatens not only their wager, but also the limits of their 20-year friendship. Against the backdrop of a startling request and moral dilemma--choosing to die with dignity--what they ultimately discover is the strength to handle the unforeseen, the underlying meaning of their bet, and the often-difficult choices that define true friendship.

Based in part on an actual bet and the ensuing real-life golf experiences, this blending of golf history, Finding True Center is great theater, and Nick and Easy's journey seeks to be as thought provoking as it is entertaining.
