Hutch is a washed up pro golfer who spends his time drinking and playing golf for money. He has anger problems that put him in front of a judge who orders him to do 1,000 hours of community service helping the “Little Loopers” learn to play golf. This is the club’s youth golf team, and he isn’t very excited.
The team takes a liking to Hutch and they begin to learn and grow together, both as individuals and as players. Hutch takes them all the way into the championship tournament, and they win as a team! Which is a very heartwarming part of the story.
He doesn’t like the challenge at first but learns something about himself and the team as they work together. There are a number of values the kids must follow, which Hutch discovers also work for him.
Despite many wrong ideas and miscommunication, the kids and Hutch come together with confidence and hard work to overcome the biggest challenge for all of them. This movie is about change, helping others, turning your life around, and confidence; most of all it is about the love of the game.
With the boost of confidence from the kids, Hutch pulls himself back together and makes it onto the pro tour again, winning the heart of the lovely country club director in the meantime.
Although this has some questionable parts as far as ages go, I would say it is up to the parent. This is not rated, but I might say ages 12 and above. I found it to be a ‘feel good movie’, and family friendly.
