The case is being updated!
It writes the PGA Tour in a press release on Wednesday.
The “Drive to Survive” series has created a huge interest in Formula 1, and now the creators of the series also get access to what happens inside the PGA Tour and to all the biggest individual tournaments in the sport of golf.
A total of 23 players have already confirmed that they will be with the series, the PGA Tour writes in the press release. It appears that Viktor Hovland, who is currently ranked number six in the world, will participate.
It was Eurosport who first mentioned the case in Norway. They also asked Hovland about a participation in the Netflix series when the rumors about the series came last autumn.
– It is possible. I’m not very much of a fan of having a camera team in tow all the time, but we’ll see, Hovland said at the time.
Now it is clear that he will be in the series. In addition to Hovland, Abraham Ancer, Daniel Berger, Cameron Champ, Joel Dahmen, Tony Finau, Matthew Fitzpatrick, Tommy Fleetwood, Rickie Fowler, Sergio Garcia, Harry Higgs, Max Homa, Dustin Johnson, Brooks Koepka, Collin Morikawa, Kevin Na , Mito Pereira, Ian Poulter, Xander Schauffele, Jordan Spieth, Justin Thomas and Bubba Watson participate in the documentary series, as well as Keita Nakajima, who is ranked as the world’s best amateur.
