Four more must-watch golf documentaries once you’ve completed Full Swing
The first season of Netflix golf series Full Swing has generated interest in films and documentaries that have sought to lift the lid on the sport.
Full Swing is available to stream on Netflix and documents life on the PGA Tour at a time when the sport is facing great change.
We count Full Swing among the five golf documentaries you should watch if you get the chance.
Full Swing is akin to acclaimed basketball doc The Last Dance for the golf world after the cameras followed a complete season on the PGA tour.
You can travel behind the scenes with several of the greatest golfers in this eight-episode series as they discuss what’s working, what isn’t, and where their success ultimately comes from.
Viewers feel immersed in the film since it follows the PGA Tour players in real time. Full Swing is a series that golf fans should take some time to check out since it offers uncommon access to the minds of elite players.
Hit it Hard
John Daly is one of the most well-known figures in golf, with a story that is unlike any other in the game.
The ESPN Films 30 for 30 instalment called Hit It Hard focuses on Daly’s background and present. The documentary explores his turbulent career, his stirring return performance at St. Andrews in 1995, and his more recent activities.
Daly is frequently referred to as the master of “grip it and rip it” play. You’ll discover that his behaviour on and off the course isn’t all that dissimilar.
Loopers: The Caddie’s Long Walk
Today, you wouldn’t question the value of a caddy to a professional golfer. When competing on the greens, they are frequently regarded as the all-knowing guide; however, this wasn’t always the case. Enter Loopers, a film about the lengthy and fascinating history of golf caddies.
It includes interviews with a wide variety of well-known caddies and golfers; Bill Murray, a former caddie, even makes many appearances.
Loopers also takes the time to explain the significance of this history, highlighting the importance that African-American caddies had in the early development of the professional game.
Tiger Woods’ storied career has been better documented than perhaps any other player, but it seems there is always something new to learn.
The two-part, ground-breaking documentary Tiger takes in Woods’ whole life, including his 2019 return to win the Masters.
The documentary explores themes of sporting greatness, redemption, and dignity and contains a tonne of never-before-seen videos and interviews.
The Founders tells the story of a group of trailblazing women who made the decision to prove to the world that they could compete in golf just as well as any man.
When they went out on tour, they lived in an American society that forbade women from participating in any sports that would be seen as “too manly.”
While highlighting the trailblazers who made that development possible in the first place, the movie also serves as a reminder of how far we’ve come.
