Synopsis by Hal Erickson
When 50-year-old ad man Mitch McKinley (Robert Urich) loses his job, it seems like the end of the world. Before long, however, Mitch has decided to cut his losses and pursue his lifelong ambition to become a professional golfer. Rising to fame and fortune on the Senior Tour, Mitch is at last able to make his dreams come true -- albeit at expense of his wife and family, whom he sorely neglects on the road back to life. A serviceable entry in the "Male Midlife Crisis" genre (aided by some impressive golfing footage), Miracle on the 17th Green was adapted from a novel by James Patterson and Peter DeJong, and initially broadcast by CBS on December 19, 1999.
