You don't need to like golf to like -- perhaps even to love -- The Short Game.

Michael O'Sullivan, Washington Post, 2014-02-07

 

[The Short Game] finds the most entertaining angle on one of the world's dullest sports.

Peter Debruge, Variety, 2013-09-25

 

On a cuteness scale -- where 10 is a fuzzy kitten yawning in a hammock -- the chattily uninhibited 7- and 8-year-old golfers of The Short Game score high.

Nicolas Rapold, New York Times, 2013-09-19

 

Like its half-pint stars, The Short Game stands on the cusp of brilliance.

Scott Bowles, USA Today, 2013-09-19

 

What Greenbaum captures is compelling, and occasionally uncomfortable to watch.

Michael Whitmer, Boston Globe, 2013-09-19

 

Offers a warts-and-all portrait of these pint-sized athletes and their parents as they tee off on the global stage.

Annlee Ellingson, Los Angeles Times, 2013-09-19

 

The film works not just because it makes golf enjoyable to watch, but also because, by the end, you get to know these kids.

Daphne Howland, Village Voice, 2013-09-17

 

This less-than-illuminating work resembles the spelling-bee doc "Spellbound," only with a promise of high-end endorsements and far more pampering.

Joe Neumaier, New York Daily News, 2013-09-19
