The announcement revealed the star-studded cast of golfers it would follow, in a series that will be produced in part by the company behind the “Drive to Survive” series in Formula One which has become so popular.
In what is a first in golf, all four governing bodies that organize golf’s major championships — Augusta National Golf Club, the PGA of America, the USGA, and The R&A — will provide access to all four majors, as well as some of the biggest events on the PGA Tour schedule, including the Players Championship and the season-ending FedExCup.
“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.”
“Our members will love getting to know the players and personalities as well as the iconic venues along the way. Even the most devoted golf fans have never seen the sport quite like this.”
The golfers the series would follow, listed in alphabetical order: Abraham Ancer, Daniel Berger, Cameron Champ, Joel Dahmen, Tony Finau, Matthew Fitzpatrick, Tommy Fleetwood, Rickie Fowler, Sergio Garcia, Harry Higgs, Max Homa, Viktor Hovland, Dustin Johnson, Brooks Koepka, Collin Morikawa, Kevin Na, Mito Pereira, Ian Poulter, Xander Schauffele, Jordan Spieth, Justin Thomas, and Bubba Watson.
Netflix also announced it would follow the No. 1 ranked amateur golfer, Keita Nakajima, as he plays in the first majors of his career.
