Sports Film of the Week: The Short Game

Stick your feet up and let a bunch of seven-year-old kids make you wonder about your misspent youth.

Title: The Short Game

Released: 2013

Director: Josh Greenbaum

Plot: Every year 1500 of the world’s best young golfers head to Pinehurst, North Carolina for the World Championships of Junior Golf.

Sure what else would you be doing at seven years of age?

The Short Game follows eights of these youngsters and their families to give us a snapshot of the highly competitive world of junior golf.

What the critics said: “A decidedly upbeat approach… doesn’t negate the film’s darker themes, just buries them in the narrative bunker. But for astute viewers and golf fans, Short hits the green consistently and is, at times, a hole-in-one.” (Scott Bowles, USA Today)

Random YouTube comment: “It is funny, touching and even inspirational! 99% of you are going to love it, too!” (FreakyDee99)
