The Short Game

A group of seven year old golfing protégés battle to be the next champion of tomorrow.


The Short Game follows the lives of eight of the best seven-year old golfers in the world as they train for and compete in the World Championships of Junior Golf.
The annual tournament held at golfing mecca Pinehurst, North Carolina, brings in 1500 young golfers from 54 different countries and determines who will be crowned golf’s next phenomenon.


In its course, the eight stories entwine to form a fascinating and often funny portrait of a group of very young athletes and their families, in which the narrow-focused, peculiar and highly competitive junior golf subculture becomes both a window into contemporary global society and an inspiring reflection of the human condition
