Palm Beach Gardens, Florida, United States: Asia-Pacific Amateur Championship (AAC) winner Keita Nakajima will feature in an immersive Netflix documentary series following the lives and stories of the world’s top golfers across a season of high-stakes competition.

For the first time ever, 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 provide entry into the sport’s biggest events including The Players Championship and season-ending FedEx Cup, as well as the four Majors: the Masters Tournament, PGA Championship, US Open Championship and The Open.

With unprecedented access inside the ropes and behind the scenes, the series will capture the intensity of training, travel, victory, and defeat through the lens of a diverse group of players and their support teams.

Current PGA Tour player commitments include (alphabetically): 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.

Additionally, Japan’s Nakajima, the world’s number one-ranked amateur golfer, will participate as he plays in the first Major championships of his career. Nakajima, who won last year’s AAC in Dubai, has secured starting spots in the Masters Tournament, the US Open and The Open.

“This partnership with Netflix presents the PGA Tour and the four Major championships an opportunity to tap into a completely new and diverse audience,” said Rick Anderson, Chief Media Officer of the PGA Tour. “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.”

Brandon Riegg, Netflix Vice President of Unscripted and Documentary Series, said: “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. 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.”

The series is produced by Vox Media Studios (Explained) and Box To Box Films (Formula 1: Drive to Survive). Filming is underway now throughout 2022.
