Netflix is coming into Full Swing with its list of sports documentaries.
Ever since cult-favorite Formula 1: Drive to Survive came out, we’ve seen just how powerful this kind of media can be for a sport in drawing more fans. Thus, several sports have followed suit.
Now, the streaming platform is adding a golf docu-series to its roster: Full Swing.
What is it about?
Coming from the producers of Formula 1: Drive to Survive, this brand golf docu-series will have a similar take to the racing series, this time with a new sport.
Netflix has teamed up with the PGA Tour and some of the major golf tournaments in the world to create a documentary series that showcases the lives of several pro golfers across an entire season of competitions.
This includes major championship events, such as the PGA of America, the USGA, and the Augusta National Golf Club.
According to Netflix, the PGA Tour has granted the team behind Full Swing unprecedented access to the behind-the-scenes world of golf.
This means that through the documentary series, fans will be able to get an inside look at the lives of professional golfers, the highs and lows of a golf tournament, the intensity of training and travel, and of course, the victories and defeats.
“This documentary will give fans an authentic look into the real lives of our athletes, and what it’s like to win — and lose — during a season on the PGA TOUR,” Rick Anderson, Chief Media Officer of the PGA TOUR, told Netflix.
Who’s starring in it?
Good news, golf fans! Many of your favorite pro golfers will be gracing your screens on Full Swing.
And if you aren’t a golf fan, this is a perfect place to finally learn about more players in the sport. (There’s more to golf than Tiger Woods).
Some of the big-name athletes that are expected to feature in the docu-series include Jordan Spieth, Justin Thomas, Matt Fitzpatrick, Rory McIlroy, and Cameron Young, among a long list of other personalities.
When will it be released?
The best part about this new documentary is that you won’t need to wait that much longer until you can finally stream it!
Full Swing is premiering on Netflix on February 15, 2023, with eight episodes set to release.
Looks like we know what we’ll be binge-watching this February. Which players and tournaments are you most excited to see in the series?
