We are all spending a little extra time at home these days, so we thought we'd put together a list of little-known golf movies to stream from your couch.
We've all seen Caddyshack, Happy Gilmore, and Tin Cup. We wanted to come up with a list of lesser-known movies that many have not seen before. Fortunately, we have over 1,000 employees actively working in the industry - from shaping greens to teaching golf lessons - so we had a pretty experienced group to poll. Here's what they recommend:
The Short Game /// Netflix /// 7.4/10 (IMDB)
The short game is a great documentary for kids and families. It follows the stories of nine junior golfers as they descend on the world-famous Pinehurst Resort for the world junior championship.
Tee Shot: Ariya Jutanugarn /// Netflix /// 6.9/10 (IMDB)
Another in the documentary/biopic category, this feature-length film covers the story of Ariya Jutanugarn's rise to be the #1 ranked golfer in the world. Ariya started as an unknown Thai-based junior golfer and rose to become one of the most prominent players on the LPGA TOUR and the first Thai-born player to win on the PGA or LPGA tours.
Seven Days in Utopia /// Amazon Prime /// 6.0/10 (IMBD)
Robert Duvall stars in this one as an eccentric Texas rancher who takes-in an aspiring PGA TOUR Player after a disastrous debut.
The Founders /// Free on IMDB TV /// 6.5/10 (IMDB)
Not many know the story of the start of the LPGA, but everyone should. The Founders tells the inspiring story of the 13 women who banded together to create the LPGA. It is an amazing story co-produced by the LPGA's Stacy Lewis.
Red Oaks /// Amazon Prime /// 7.9/10 (IMDB)
While not a golf-movie per se, Red Oaks is a coming-of-age series about a group of kids who belong-to, or work-at, the local country club.
Seve: The Movie /// Amazon Prime /// 7.1/10 (IMDB)
The story of the late, great Seve Ballesteros who fought against adversity to become one of the most loved figures in golf. The movie combines recreations with archival footage to tell Seve's story.
