How the LPGA Tour is taking fans behind-the-scenes this season
While the PGA Tour’s Netflix series Full Swing is set to release in February, it won’t be the only behind-the-scenes look at professional golf we see this year.
The LPGA Tour announced plans for a multi-episode documentary series of their own featuring some of the best players in the world. The series, called LPGA All-Access, will air on LPGA.com and YouTube.
“This docuseries is an excellent opportunity to continue showcasing the many stories and personalities of LPGA Tour athletes and give fans a peek into what goes into life on Tour,” Brian Carroll, LPGA EVP of global media distribution, said in a statement.
The series is being produced by Orlando-based production company toldright with Adam Hertzog serving as executive producer. Hertzog has previously worked as a producer and writer for ESPN, HBO Sports and NBC Sports.
Drive On: LPGA All Access will feature exclusive on- and off-course moments at some of the biggest events on the LPGA schedule, including the International Crown and the Solheim Cup. The first episode, shot at the season-opening HGV Tournament of Champions, features Gemma Dryburgh, Jodi Ewart Shadoff and major champion Ashleigh Buhai.
“We’re excited to embark on this season-long production with episodes illustrating a record-breaking year for those battling for titles week in and week out on the LPGA Tour,” Carroll said.
The series will debut on Feb. 6 at 8 p.m. ET.
