They can even keep the title, "Drive to Survive".

Could be interesting. Hopefully, the tour lets Netflix do its thing and doesn’t try to make it super bland. Netflix has done a good job with these, though, so I’m not too worried about that.

Disclaimer:  Rickie is one of my favorite guys on tour.  From the article:  "In 2019, discussions began in earnest about the possibility of a Tour-centric docuseries. Rickie Fowler was the first pro to raise his hand, vouching for the merits of the idea and volunteering as participant..."  When he's not doing TV commercials.  😀

Which are pretty bad IMHO. 😁

I like this idea also. I love Hard Knocks. Especially since they have added the in-season version.

I worry that they will only show us the positive stuff, but hopefully we get a good inside look.

My wife's cousin (more like a nephew to us since he is same age as our kids) is working on this series as a grip.  He sent a picture of DJ playing basketball this week and think was with Spieth a few weeks ago.

I wasn't sure if I should bump this or start a new one, but the trailer and title of the series was released today, so maybe it's easier to just change the title of this thread. The new series is called Full Swing.

Definitely gonna check this one out. Fingers crossed it lives up to the hype!

Golf need stuff like this. I hope it'll be good.

Did the trailer make you more or less hyped?

I'd been hearing good things, so the trailer… didn't show me anything much that I didn't expect. So, it didn't land flat for me, but it didn't really land. It just "is."

Less hyped. They have a large number of characters in this. I would rather go deep on a few rather than light on many. Maybe the show will do that, but the trailer made me think they are going to have too many characters to dive deeply.

The trailer didn’t do anything for me. I still plan to watch. I expect drama to an extent, but I guess I’m more interested in how personal it gets into their routines outside of actual tournaments.

Yea I had similar thoughts. My expectations are as low as can be. Hopefully it's cool, but golf related documentaries tend to be pretty crappy. Maybe I just watch too much Golf Channel.

Is the from years of being a Jets fan?😜

I agree that the promo didn’t really intrigue me. Hopefully it will be better than expected. I think we all want to see something a little different than the average viewer. But they may be playing towards the average viewer.

😄 I think it's from sitting through far too many puff pieces from places like Golf Channel for me to believe any documentary filmmaker would be able to show a legitimately entertaining picture of life on tour, especially one we haven't seen. Of course, the reality of them all just being slaves to the game probably isn't super entertaining anyway. Get up, hit range balls all day, come home, go to bed, get up, do it all again, get your flight delayed, sleep in a Hampton Inn, wake up groggy, hit range balls, shoot 67-74, miss the cut, cry about it, go to bed, hit range balls, miss your flight, etc. etc.

My hope of seeing a super real depiction of these guys' lives isn't happening either. Dustin Johnson's part starts off with him buying some yayo from his sketchy Miami dealer who gives him a hard time about the increased prices. He drives home to an angry Paulina who immediately demands he buys her more diamonds. Then he goes up to the bathroom to splash water on his face and as he's staring at himself in the mirror, that's when he decides to take the LIV money.

Yea, that scene probably isn't happening.

I think you guys may have figured it out though. If it's five minutes with Justin Thomas, five minutes with Rory, eight minutes with Poulter because he wouldn't shut up about how bitter he is, five minutes with Matt Fitzpatrick, etc. etc. and that's the whole thing, then it's probably going to be disappointing.

    • Day 322: lighter day with some mirror work. Working on the downswing feels to get the hips more open. 
    • A flushed towering 152 yard 8-iron that never left the pin to a foot and a half on the 17th hole after a solid drive. The ensuing birdie putt completed our two man team match claw back to even after being four down through 10.  Tied 18th and the match but felt like a win.
    • A gross 6 under for a scramble is not that good. I would buy it. Our gross winning score is usually 17-18 under. First time I've heard of a handicapped scramble.
    • Absolutely. If my skills were reversed and I was a better putter than driver of the ball, I would have made that 8-footer. For double bogey  Mine is completely blind because it goes downhill starting basically right at the corner of the dogleg with the fairway sloping left to right. I know the line to take from experience, but just to give you an idea how it sets up, I hit directly over the two trees that the white line on my screenshot passes over, with a draw. I'm pretty sure my ball landed on the left side of the fairway. The safe way is to just hit it 220 to the corner and leave yourself just under 150 into a pretty large green, but there's very little reason not to be aggressive on this hole.
