Netflix have finally dropped the much anticipated trailer for Full Swing, which is essentially the golf version of Formula 1's uber popular Drive to Survive series.
The show is being made by the same creators, and the vibe of the trailer gives the impression that they will be going for a similar formula with the golf; a super-charged, slightly over-the-top, but nonetheless fascinating look inside the lives of some of the sport's top professionals.
Crucially, a release date of February 15 has been named, with the show dropping slightly sooner than many would have expected.
In terms of the golfers involved, fans will not be disappointed with seven of the world's top 20 involved - plus some of LIV Golf's biggest names - including Rory McIlroy, Jordan Spieth, Scottie Scheffler, Matt Fitzpatrick, Dustin Johnson, Brooks Koepka, Collin Morikawa, Ian Poulter, and Justin Thomas.
The PGA Tour vs LIV Golf saga looks like it will be addressed as well with Ian Poulter remarking in the trailer that "you [Netflix] picked a hell of a year to start following the PGA Tour."

"When I'm on the golf course, that's what I do so I'm very comfortable in that atmosphere. I think it's going to be great," said Justin Thomas on the creation of the show.
"I think it's going to be great. It's going to be on Netflix in early 2023. It's just going to give a lot of people (the opportunity) outside of golf to take a look inside of golfer's lives. Just more of the day-to-day.
"They had moments where they're in the car with me driving to the golf course or they're watching me work out, or they're having dinner with some guys. I think it's going to be a really cool thing for people to see."
