Is Netflix's new show 'Full Swing' worth the watch?

Worth The Watch?

Netflix recently came out with a brand new Golf docuseries from the same creators of the popular show Drive to Survive called Full Swing. Full Swing follows the lives of professional golfers on and off the course during the 2022 PGA Tour. Each episode highlights different golfers and events throughout the season . There has been a lot of hype around the show so is it worth the watch?

The 8 episode first season has episodes that features Justin Thomas, Jordan Spieth, Brooks Koepka, Ian Poulter, Joel Dahmen, Matt Fitzpatrick, Dustin Johnson, Tony Finau, Collin Morikawa, Sahith Theegala, Mito Pereira, and Rory McIlroy. The personalities they follow are some of the biggest names in the Golf world and because of this it allows for both the casual and die hard golf fan to connect with each episode. Alongside the golfers they also focus on the biggest tournaments in the golfing world such the Players open and US Open.

One of the strongest storylines from this show was that it had the cameras rolling as the golf world went haywire with the formation of the Saudi-backed LIV golf tour. It gives the show a real antagonist no matter which golfer was being highlighted as the LIV tour cast a giant shadow on the golf world. The cameras get to catch each golfers real feelings towards the new tour and the progression for some of them to make the jump over.

Full Swing and Netflix do a great job peeling back the curtain on these superstars life's and allowing us to see the pressure and work that goes into the life of a Golfer to push them to the top. Compelling story lines, drama on the course, and likable golfers makes this show a great watch for new and old golf fans. After watching the first season it had me ready to go out to a course and hit the driving range.

No Sex And Upstate New York

A modern-day reincarnation of Carrie Bradshaw's classic column


Around the age of 12, when I was deciding whether or not to be gay, Satan appeared on my left shoulder. “Ramsssey,” he said with that telltale lisp. “Come over to our side. We have crazy partiessss.” He made a strong case, bouncing up and down on my shoulder with six-pack abs and form-fitting Calvin Kleins. An angel popped up on the other shoulder and was going to warn me about something, but Satan interrupted- “Shut up, you crusty-ass bitch!’ The angel was pretty crusty. She disappeared, and from that moment forward I was gay.

Senior Year Is Here And I Am So Not Ready For It

I was you not that long ago. I was once an eager freshman, a searching sophomore, and a know-it-all junior. Now? Now I am a risk taker. Not the type that gets you in trouble with your parents, but the type that changes your future. Senior year is exciting. A lot of awesome things come along with being the top-dog of the school, but you, right now, are building the foundation for the next 4 years that you will spend in high school. I know you've heard it all. "Get involved", "You'll regret not going to prom", "You're going to miss this". As redundant as these seem, they're true. Although I am just at the beginning of my senior year, I am realizing how many lasts I am encountering.

Why Driving Drives Me Crazy

the highways are home


With Halloween quickly approaching, I have been talking to coworkers about what scares us. There are always the obvious things like clowns, spiders, heights, etc. But me? There are a number things I don't like: trusting strangers, being yelled at, being in life or death situations, parallel parking. All of these are included when you get behind the wheel of a car.
