On The Phone With John O'Hurley
SWING AWAY follows professional golfer 'Zoe Papadopoulos' (Shannon Elizabeth), who following a meltdown that leads to a suspension, travels to her grandparents' village in Greece to escape the harsh spotlight of the international sports world. Between baking bread and eating baklava, she meets and mentors a ten-year-old girl who is determined against all odds to become the next golf sensation. Along the way, 'Zoe' rediscovers her Greek heritage, her love of the game, and the hidden strength within herself as she inspires the townspeople in an epic showdown against a greedy American developer played by John O'Hurley.
