Justin Thomas Says Netflix Has Found a ‘Breathtaking’ Year of Golf to Base Their Soon-To-Air Documentary On At his best.
The PGA Tour confirmed in January 2022 that the streaming service would have unprecedented behind-the-scenes access to its tournaments as well as the game’s four major men’s championships.
At his bestwhich will be released on February 15, features Thomas winning the PGA Championship and Matt Fitzpatrick becoming the fourth Englishman in the last century to win the US Open.
However, this also includes the dramatic fallout from the emergence of the Saudi-backed and financially lucrative LIV Golf series, which has created a great divide within the sport.
A number of players signed up for Full Swing before joining LIV Golf, including Ian Poulter, Dustin Johnson and Brooks Koepka.
World number 8 Thomas said: “Maybe [Netflix] just knew something we didn’t know.
“As a golf fan, I’m excited to watch it”
“It’s mind-blowing when it started at the start of the year and the amount of intrigue just through the players and what they’re trying to accomplish.
“I don’t think anyone could have sat here at this time last year and said what was going to happen.
“I’m delighted to watch and it couldn’t have really drawn a better year or a better situation as to what happened throughout the year. It’s a bit crazy to say, but as as a golf fan, I’m excited to watch it.
“I know what I shot (images), but I don’t know what Tony Finau shot, or what Rory (McIlroy) shot. It’s going to be interesting and cool.
“I see these guys and they stand on the third tee or whatever, but I’m still going to see things that I’ve never seen.
“Any big golf fan will appreciate that side, while other people who may not have heard of par before will learn what it is. I think that’s what’s very unique. “
“I want to develop the game of golf”
When asked why he agreed to sign up for the series, Thomas, a two-time major champion, added: “The main reason was to try to create and grow the audience and the fanbase in terms of Round and game of golf.
“If the game of golf can become a bigger and better place, then we all benefit.
“It’s just a good opportunity for some of us to show our personalities or our week-to-week life, our daily life, our travels – things like that that people would never see unless we gave a access like this.”
Netflix is available on Sky Q and Sky Glass
