Full Swing set for another round as Netflix confirms return of docu-series

Netflix really is giving this a proper club face. Golf docu-series Full Swing is locked in for a second round, coming in 2024.

Streaming giant Netflix has announced its hit new sports docu-series, which premiered less than a month ago, will be back again to follow the PGA Tour through a unique phase of its 94-year history.

The decision doesn’t come as a huge surprise to diehard golf fanatics, as Netflix’s production crew has been seen filming the forthcoming second season during the early goings of the 2023 tour.

Accompanying the social media announcement by the streaming service, PGA tour commissioner Jay Monahan spoke in a press conference at the Players Championship confirming the exciting news.

“Full Swing debuted to Netflix’s 230 million subscribers the week of the Genesis Invitational and has been consistently in the Netflix top 10 worldwide,” Monahan said.

“As a result of such a strong performance out of the gate, Netflix announced earlier this morning that they are officially green-lighting season two.”

So let’s have a look at everything you need to know about the docu-series Full Swing.

What is Netflix’s Full Swing?

Through the eight episodes in the opening season of Full Swing, the series follows professional golfers on and off the course on the PGA tour during arguably one of the most relentless seasons of the competition.

The show has been praised for its behind-the-scenes shots of life at some of the biggest tournaments in the world including the four majors – The Masters, Open Championship, US PGA and US Open.

In addition to the actual events on the sporting calendar, the series takes a deep dive into the personal lives of athletes — which had us all as invested in the PGA golfers as we now are with every F1 driver.

Considering the ongoing battle between the PGA and the controversial LIV Golf that become a prominent storyline last year, the docu-series entails some of the conflict but hopefully more in season two.

“You picked a hell of a year to start following the PGA Tour,” says Ian Poulter in the trailer for the first season.

It’s expected that Netflix will continue to follow golf’s biggest events, but may change the narrative structure for season two from focusing heavily on the individual arcs of players to more about the chronological developments of the golf season.

Who has been involved in Full Swing so far?

The series is produced by Vox Media Studios and Box to Box Films (the people behind Formula 1: Drive to Survive) in partnership with the PGA Tour.

It has delivered never before seen, behind-the-scenes footage of some of golfs biggest names including Rory McIlroy, Justin Thomas and Brooks Koepka, and details the life of a professional on the tour.

The series features more of the top-ranking players to some of the more modestly performing guys but is still entertaining from start to finish.

When will Full Swing season two be released?

A release date is yet to be confirmed by Netflix or the PGA but their initial social media announcement outlined that it will be out for the streaming service’s members in 2024.

Rumours have it that it will be released by the earliest, March next year.

Is there a trailer?

A trailer for season two is going to be a while away and we probably won’t see one till later this year around December. However, have a look at the opening season’s trailer if you haven’t watch the docu-series yet!

Which other sporting docuseries are out there right now?

Quarterback adds to a laundry list of other sporting docos that have been released, or are in the works. It truly has never been a better time to be a sports fan.

In addition to a new season of Drive to Survive, Netflix has also launched Break Point and Full Swing — docos on tennis and golf, respectively — this year, with more about the Tour De France and 2022 FIFA World Cup still to come.
