They were not supposed to be athletes. They were not supposed to get paid to play. They were not supposed to call the shots. But in 1950, 13 amateur women golfers battled society, finances and sometimes even each other to stake their claim to become professional sportswomen.

Cast: Bella Lotz, Louise Suggs, Caleb Messer, Marilynn Smith, Shirley Sport, Marlene Bauer, Bryn Vale
