“From the Rough” is not your average movie, and now the Christian actors involved in the project are opening up about the amazing true story that they believe will inspire people from all walks of life.

The film tells the true story of former Tennessee State University golf coach Catana Starks who broke records and boundaries as a black female golf coach who took Division I NCAA male team to the top of their game. Although Starks formerly coached swimming and worked at a Historically Black University, she created a new mold in college athletics by recruiting international athletes from Korea, Australia, England and Albania who made it to the top of their division.

Taraji P. Henson, the Academy Award nominated Christian actress, stars in the movie as Coach Starks and told The Christian Post about why she took so much pride in the role.

“I’m particularly proud of this one because she’s not anybody’s girlfriend or wife. She’s not a cop, she’s a coach,” Henson exclaimed to CP. “When have we ever seen that? A golf coach!”

While Henson brings the true story of a golf coach to life, she wanted to let it be known that “From The Rough” is not a golf movie.
