SPORTS E OUTDOORS CaPe Gazette 106 FRIDAY, NOVEMBER 7- MONDAY, NOVEMBER 10, 2014 i an The Rehoboth Beach Inde- pendent Film Festival is now underway, running Nov. 5-9. This year's festival is showing movies not only at the Movies at Midway, but also at the beautiful and spacious Cape Henlopen High School theater. ' 'ggith more than 88 movies on the schedule, this year's festival offers plenty of enjoyable view- ing options. Unlike past years, however, none of this year's selections include movies with a golf- related element. That's not to oxymoron say you couldn't have your own golf movie festival with Netflix, a big-screen TV and maybe a DVD player, if so inclined. "Keeping Mum" ran at the 2006 Rehoboth festival and is available on DVD. The late Pat- rick Swayze played a sleazy golf professional on the make with a preacher's wife, played by Kristin Scott Thomas. Rowan Atkinson, betterknown as Mr. Bean, was the preacher. This is a dark little comedy with golf as one of the subplots. "The Short Game" is now streaming on Netflix. I highly recommend this charming, fam- ily-friendly documentary about junior golfers competing in the 2012 World Championships in Pinehurst, N.C. My daughter Carolyn recently tipped me to this movie, and I'm very glad she did. Five boys and three girls, ages 7 and 8, from the United States and several foreign countries, are showcased as they prepare for and then compete in the an- nual tournament, sponsored by U.S. Kids Golf. As one of the parents says, the 8olf is just a stal$e. As we watch, the kids learn something about competition, themselves and what it means to be so to- tally dedicated to one sport. The documentary does not sugarcoat the occasional presence of stage mothers and (especially) fathers. Nonethe- less, it's also refreshing to see that not every child's daddy caddie lives vicariously stroke by stroke with their child's performance. The kids themselves are just a joy to watch. They're far too young to judge for their occa- sional lapses of judgment, and often show a surprising level of maturity, mixed in with com- pletely natural kid behavior. The movie had a limited run in a few cities in 2013, and also earned several awards on the film festival circuit. For more information, go to theshort- gamemovie.com. Here are additional golf movie options, which I've noted in previous columns. Hockey Continued from page 102 goals in the second half against a really good Concord team." Tess Bernheimer found the back of the cage at 23:32 of the first half on an assist from Lexi Woodruff to gave the Vikings a 1-O halftime advantage. Early in the second half, Wood- ruff sneaked a shot through the mix of legs and sticks offan assist from Erin Coverdale for a 2-0 Cape advantage. Goalie Tina Gooding was cred- ited with three saves but only remembers one fling from the cage for an open field kick save. "I like to make my saves look dramatic," Tina said with a smile after the game. "I know in the state tournament more action is coming to my doorstep." Cape's back-line defense of Lizzie Frederick, Jordan Brown and Annie Judge - all starting in new positions - pitched their 13th shutout of the season while Cape has gone 104-5 in goal differential. Judge was up on attack on a Cape corner and slapped home a shot sent in by Coverdale for her first state tournament goal. Goals by Broadhurst and Bernheimer, each assisting the other, brought the final tally to 5-0. Concord senior goalie Mar- go Donlin was credited with 14 Cape's corner defense flies out of the cage. saves. The Vikings will play Sussex Tech at the new Dover High School at 2 p.m., Saturday, Nov. 8, followed by the Delmar versus Polytech contest at 4 p.m. "The Caddy" (1953) - Dean Martin and Jerry Lewis took their comic shtick to the golf course, with Martin as a pro golfer and Lewis as his caddy. This is the film where Martin sings "That's Amor&" which earned an Oscar nomination. Ben Hogan, Sam Snead and Byron Nelson play themselves, and a very pretty, very young Donna Reed appears in a sup- porting role. "Caddyshack" (1980) - Fol- lowing the Martin/Lewis tradition, Chevy Chase and Bill Murray tried their hand at a comedy centered around golf. The raunchy film is now rec- ognized as one of the best such movies of all time. Among other running gags, Murray plays a demented groundskeeper trying to eliminate an obviously fake groundhog, with eventually explosive results. "Tin Cup" (1996) - The writer of "Bull Durham" switched sports, but kept Kevin Costner as the hero in this wry char- acter study about a golf pro at a down-market driving range. Rene Russo plays the love interest. Cheech Marin is a wisecracking caddie who helps Costner when he somehow makes the finals 0fthe U.S. Open. Pick a better time and place to practice A recent Ruling of the Day at the USGA website stressed the fact that there are limits to where and when a golfer can practice, especially during a competitive round. A golfer lifts his ball properly from the putting green. While waiting for another golfer to play their ball, he drops his ball offthe green and makes a few practice putts. Not a good idea, because it violates the practice limitations of Rule 7-2. In match play, the golfer loses the hole. In stroke play, he adds two penalty strokes after put- ting out.
