‘Full Swing’ Season 2 set for March 6 debut on Netflix

The second season of the “Full Swing” documentary, that gives an inside look at life on the PGA Tour, is set to debut March 6 on Netflix.

Vox Media Studios, one of the production companies putting the series together, made the announcement Thursday at Pebble Beach Golf Links, site of this week’s AT&T Pebble Beach Pro-Am.

Full Swing’s second season will take an in-depth look at the 2023 PGA Tour season.

“The reception for Season 1 was kind of beyond my wildest dreams honestly and it’s been a dream come true to get to make this show,” Vox Chief creative officer Chad Mumm said Thursday. “As you would probably imagine, the last year in pro golf was as dramatic or more than what we saw in Season 1.”

The eight-part Season 1 began with an episode on the friendship and rivalry between Jordan Spieth and Justin Thomas. Episodes also centered on Brooks Koepka returning to The Masters, Ian Poulter’s decision to move to LIV Golf, drama surrounding the U.S. Open and Rory McIlroy’s defense of the PGA Tour in the face of LIV’s arrival. According to Mumm, episodes in the new season will include the Ryder Cup and U.S. Open, as well as highlighting players like McIlroy, Dustin Johnson, Rickie Fowler, Wyndham Clark, Joel Dahmen, Matt Fitzpatrick, Alex Fitzpatrick, Tom Kim, Keegan Bradley, Zach Johnson, Thomas, Luke Donald, Justin Rose.

“I think (for Season 1) we shot 750 hours of raw footage on our cameras and brought in another 3,000 hours of archive to tell the story that ended up being six hours of a Netflix show,” Mumm said. “(Last) year we shot 900 hours and we got 10,000 hours worth of archive.”

Netflix also airs similar sports-themed documentary series centering on NFL quarterbacks, Formula 1, the ATP and WTA tennis tours, cycling’s Tour de France, Six Nations rugby, the Sunderland soccer club in England and NACSAR. New series on the NBA, Spain’s La Liga soccer, as well as track and field are in the works.
