With the release of its new documentary series, ‘Full Swing,’ golf is the latest sport to allow Netflix to pull back the curtain and show what life is truly like at the peak of the professional game.
Full Swing, produced by the team behind the television shows Break Point and Formula 1: Drive to Survive, had unmatched access to PGA Tour golf professionals during a difficult year for the sport.
Full Swing documents the top professional golfers’ difficulties, victories, and defeats as they compete in the Masters/Augusta National, U.S. Open, PGA Championship, and Open Championship. IMDb claims Full Swing is the first sports documentary movie to cover all four major competitions.
Netflix Media Center’s official synopsis is as follows:
