99 minutes - Documentary

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'.

There is something so awesome when you see kids who speak and act like miniature adults. I am all for giving miniature adults responsibilities and teaching them how to handle situations. These kids all love what they are doing and I think it is amazing that they all have the drive and ambition to want to be the best at something and really practice until they obtain that goal.
