‘The Phantom of the Open’ Due on Digital Aug. 16, Disc Aug. 30

The dramatic comedy The Phantom of the Open will be released on digital Aug. 16, and on DVD and Blu-ray Aug. 30 from Sony Pictures Home Entertainment.

The film tells the true story of Maurice Flitcroft (Mark Rylance), a dreamer and unrelenting optimist. The humble crane operator from Barrow-in-Furness managed to gain entry to the British Open Golf Championship qualifying in 1976, despite never playing a round of golf before. He shot the worst round in Open history and drew the ire of the golfing elite, but became a folk hero in the process and, more importantly, showed his family the importance of pursuing your dreams.

Special features include the “Finding Flitcroft” featurette.
