The best 7 year old golfers from around the world descend on the world famous Pinehurst Golf course in North Carolina to determine the next world champion and who might become golf's next phenomenon. Most of these young prodigies have been holding clubs since before they could walk and are better by the time they are six than most people will be in their lifetime. This is the breeding ground for the PGA and the stakes are huge. The short game follows 9 young golfers vying for the title of 'world champion'.Written by

Some of the Best Golfers You Will Ever See--And They're Kids
Another Netflix success, The Short Game is a documentary that follows eight 7- and 8-year-old golfers from around the world as they prepare for and compete in the World Golf Championships at Pinehurst, NC.
These five boys and three girls are prodigies who are delightful to watch as they deal with the demands of year-round training, expectant parents, and the stresses of competition.
As we see, it is not just athletic talent that makes these kids so accomplished. They all have strong support systems. More importantly, they all have a passion for the game. Their passion is what makes this film so enjoyable. And passion is a factor that every competitor must deal with, as defeat is inevitable.
These players display a lot of poise. Each one has big plans for the future. It will be fun to discover in later years if their plans are realized.
I recommend this film for golf enthusiasts, sports lovers, and anyone who enjoys stories of achievement and challenge. I found their stories moving.
As an aside, I noted in the end credits that Jessica Biel and Justin Timberlake were listed among the producers.
