It's being modelled after the streaming service’s hit Formula 1 series, ‘Drive to Survive’.

The first episodes will likely be released in early 2023, according to

The docuseries will be produced by Netflix in conjunction with Vox Media Studios and Drive to Survive producers Box to Box Films. Filming is underway and will continue throughout the 2022 season.

"We are thrilled to bring golf's leading organisations and players together for this first-of-its-kind partnership and unparalleled window into life on the Tour," Brandon Riegg, Netflix vice president of unscripted and documentary series, said in a statement.

"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."

"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.

For the first time, the PGA Tour and the governing bodies that conduct men's major championships – Augusta National Golf Club, the PGA of America, the USGA, and The R&A – will allow a peak at the sport's biggest events. That includes the Masters, the Players Championship and the season-ending FedExCup.

Access from behind the scenes, as well as training, travel and emotions will be shown from the viewpoint of the Tour's top stars.

Among the players involved will be 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.

The world's top-ranked amateur golfer, Keita Nakajima, also will take part as he plays in his first career major championships.

"This partnership with Netflix presents the PGA Tour and the four major championships an opportunity to tap into a completely new and diverse audience," Rick Anderson, chief media officer of the PGA Tour, said in a statement. "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."

The roots of the docuseries, according to, date back to 2019 when Fowler spoke of the merits of such a show and volunteered to be a participant. Several other golfers, including Thomas, Finau and Champ, soon followed Fowler's lead.

Among the major stars not yet affiliated with the show are Rory McIlroy, Phil Mickelson and Tiger Woods, but producers haven't given up on them appearing in the future.

The PGA Tour reportedly won't have editorial control over the series, which could create concerns about protecting the squeaky-clean image of its players. The production team will have complete rights to film at Tour events, with players having the option to wear microphones.
