A docuseries is in the works that will give viewers a behind-the-curtain look at the lives of some of the best golfers on the planet. The PGA Tour and the governing bodies of the Big Four Men’s Championships are all on board for the series, which will cover the 2022 season.
Big winners including Collin Morikawa, Dustin Johnson, Justin Thomas, Brooks Koepka, Jordan Spieth and Sergio Garcia are all . Current top-ranked male player Jon Rahm is not competing at the moment, although the planet’s main fan Keita Nakajima is involved as he prepares to play in the majors for the first time.
“We are delighted to bring together leading golf organizations and players for this one-of-a-kind partnership and an unprecedented window into the life of the Tour,” said Brandon Riegg, vice president of documentary and unscripted series, Netflix. “Our members will love seeing the players and personalities and iconic sights along the course. Even the most dedicated golf fan has never seen the sport like this.”
The show will be co-produced by Box To Box Films (which is originally , another great sports docusery from Netflix) and Vox Media Studios. Surely the PGA Tour and the governing bodies of the majors are hoping that the series can do for golf what Formula 1: Drive to survive made for the highest level of motorsport.
This show is by attracting new audiences to Formula 1 and this has significantly boosted the popularity of the sport in the United States. While golf arguably has even greater visibility in the United States, perhaps the docuseries will help it attract younger viewers as well.
