The Kids in ‘The Short Game’ Play Better Golf Than Most Adults

Screen Shot 2013-12-06 at 1.12.42 PM

On December 12, 2013 the award winning documentary, The Short Game, will air exclusively on Netflix. This golf-centric film follows the lives of pint sized golfers as they compete at the Junior World Championships at Pinehurst in North Carolina. Some of the most promising young golfers are put on display as they deal with the pressures of the tournament, and the game itself. Mind you these little athletes are only 7-years-old.

You’ll see in the trailer below that they have more skill on the golf course than most adults. Their swings are slow and smooth, and definitely caused me to be envious of their skill sets. They also showcase the frustrations that come with the game of golf, albeit in little kid form, which is actually not too different from how Tiger Woods reacts to bad shots and breaks.

The Short Game was produced by Justin Timberlake and Jessica Biel, and will only be available on Netflix beginning on December 12, 2013. Check out the trailer after the break to embrace the cuteness.
