SXSW: Doc 'The Short Game' Follows 7-Year-Old Golf Stars (Exclusive Video)
Josh Greenbaum's film will have its world premiere at the fest on March 10.
Golf may be known as a leisurely game for older businessmen, but there's a completely different side to the game, as shown in Josh Greenbaum's documentary, The Short Game.
The film, which will have its world premiere at the South by Southwest Film Festival in the documentary feature competition, follows some of the best 7-year old golfers in the world as they train for and compete in the World Championships of Junior Golf.
What does training involve, you may wonder?
The Hollywood Reporter here exclusively hosts a clip from the film, which shows the many activities taken on by the young golfers to train for their big competition.
Allan Kournikova, the brother of tennis star Anna Kournikova, takes viewers through his day, which starts at 7 a.m. with speed and agility training. He also goes to school (he's in second grade) where he participates in all the normal activities of a child (like melting chalk with vinegar) and then after school hits the golf course.
Screenings for The Short Game are as follows:
Sunday, March 10, 2013 - Stateside Theatre, 6:45 p.m.
Monday, March 11, 2013 - Violet Crown 3&4, 11:15 a.m.
Friday, March 15, 2013 - Stateside Theatre, 6:30 p.m.
SXSW runs March 8-16 in Austin.
