| Quite charming and enjoyable...but I do worry a bit about a few of these kids.
"The Short Game" is a very enjoyable documentary about something you'd never think would be interesting...a world champion golf tournament for children. This film follows a few of the boys and girls both before and during the tournament. What I liked about most of the participants is that they were kids and seemed to be enjoying themselves. However, at the same time, I was a bit concerned about a couple of the kids (one in particular) and the extreme pressure placed on them. Sure, they might do well short term but what shape will the kids be in emotionally by the time they get to adulthood? In many ways, this actually plays out a lot like a documentary about child actors or beauty contestants.

As far as how the film is constructed, it's a pretty amazing film. The film crew went to several countries to shoot some of the scenes. And, it was all put together very well--so well that you find yourself very emotionally invested in the kids. Worth seeing and fun.
