On-camera interviews probe the ambition and motivation of sports greats including Johnny Miller, Arnold Palmer, Gary Player, Tom Weiskopf, and Jack Nicklaus. Cameo appearances by Glen Campbell, sports manager Ed Barner, and (then-CBS) newscaster Jack Whitaker. Bill Markle made the film;  Shaun Costello and Mike Forhan assisted in the project overseas. Gil Markle (then a professional philosopher) interviewed most of the golfers.
