The series, which has yet to be publicly named, will be produced by Vox Media Studios and Box To Box Films, who also produced the popular Formula 1: Drive to Survive series. 

Filming is already underway and will continue throughout the year as the series looks to give viewers an immersive, behind-the-scenes look into life on the PGA Tour. 

"We are thrilled to bring golf's leading organizations and players together for this first-of-its-kind partnership and unparalleled window into life on the Tour,"  said Brandon Riegg, Netflix's vice president of unscripted and documentary series. "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."
