Get ready for an exciting clash! The first-ever Netflix Cup is about to kick off. It’s a unique event where Formula 1 and golf champions will compete before the Las Vegas Grand Prix.
– The Netflix Cup is set for Tuesday, November 14, at the Wynn Golf Club in Las Vegas.
– Stars from Netflix’s hit series ‘Drive to Survive’ and ‘Full Swing’ will compete.
– The competition will feature four pairs, each with a Formula One driver and a PGA Tour pro.
– They’ll compete in an eight-hole matchplay format.
The Netflix Cup is not just another golf tournament. It’s a fusion of speed and precision, bringing together stars from two popular Netflix sports series. Fans are in for a treat as these exciting pairings showcase their unique skills on the golf course.
The tournament will have two matches, each featuring two pairs of athletes. The winners of these matches will then face off in a final playoff for the Netflix Cup trophy. The first match will see McLaren’s Lando Norris and Rickie Fowler go up against Ferrari’s Carlos Sainz and Justin Thomas. The second match will have Williams Alex Albon and Max Homa compete against Alpine’s Pierre Gasly and Collin Morikawa.
The game will follow a scramble format. Each player on a team will hit a tee shot at the same time. Then, teams will strategize to select the best ball for their next shot. The top two teams will then advance to the final hole.
If you’re a fan of F1 or golf, you won’t want to miss this. Tune in to Netflix from 3pm Pacific Time – or 6pm ET (11pm GMT) on Tuesday to catch the action live. You can also watch the tournament on the streaming service once the event has concluded.
