Through the Lens: The Short Game

5-30_short_game.jpg

We continue our Through the Lens series with a documentary that follows the lives of some of the best golfers in the world training for a World Championship. What might surprise you though is that they are just 7-years-old and part of the peculiar and highly competitive junior golf subculture. THE SHORT GAME is a fascinating and often funny portrait of a group of very young athletes and their families as the kids compete to be crowned golf’s next phenom. Thursday, Doug is joined by director Josh Greenbaum and producer Chris Leggett.

On Wednesday, June 5th, RadioWest and The Utah Film Center present a screening of “The Short Game.” That’s at 7:00 p.m. at the Rose Wagner Performing Arts Center. Doors open at 6:30 p.m. The event is free, but seats are available on a first-come basis. Josh Greenbaum and Chris Leggett will join us in-person for a post-film Q&A.
