Netflix Full Swing Season 2 in Detail

Netflix Full Swing Season 2 in Detail

Golf fans have been happy lately: new investments, new leagues, and that Netflix dose for the popcorn and chill kind of guy. Full Swing is a great idea from Box to Box Films and Vox Media Studios (the minds behind Formula 1: Drive to Survive), and after the success of season 1, the sequel is here, filled with all the golf action and drama you can imagine. Whereas the 2023 release mainly focused on the feud between the PGA TOUR and LIV Golf, the new season is a notch different, especially with the ongoing merger talks between the two organizations. Follow us as we dive into the second season of Full Swing, unearthing every detail you need to know.

The Setting/Script

Full Swing Season 2 docuseries follows a diverse group of pro golfers across rigorous months of competition on tour and all four of golf’s major championships during the 2023 season. We have new faces and a returning cast from the first season, and with the dust between the PGA TOUR and LIV Golf somewhat settled, now every golfer focuses on playing their best game. The climax is the Ryder Cup, as Team USA faces their European counterparts in one of the most anticipated golf events of the calendar.
