If you haven't watched the Chronicles of a Championship Golfer mini-series yet on Netflix put it on your to-do asap. I binged through the entire thing last night/this morning. It's well edited and it presents a great personal side of each golfer featured. My wife and I were tearing up through most of Tom Watson's episode. Was just a refreshing and inspirational look at the game we all love.

just to add to this and my thoughts on the series. I think they are so refreshingly done (no interviewer questions just a subtitle question on the screen that the pro answers) plus the captions they put up intermittently are cleverly done with key words first. Anyway, I have watched the Tiger, Tom Watson and Gregg Norman episodes about 4 times each.....yes sad I know but did I say its so well done? its like the pro is talking directly with you and I find them so insightful and inspirational.

 

Enjoy fellas, once you start you wont stop.

Never heard of it.  I just got an email from Netflix saying they are raising my price again this month and I was looking for more stuff to watch as a reason to keep it around.  This is good enough for me!

Did some googling and it appears GC picked it up and ran the series in '16 right after production was finished for the Open that year. Now that Netflix has streaming rights to it I'd be surprised for it to be re-aired on cable. Looks like most of the episodes are on YouTube though from various people posting recording of the show, but the quality isn't the best.

    Getting prepped for my annual friends golf outing in Muncie, IN. I haven't played in about 3 weeks so a little nervous. Headed to the range this evening.

    Really looking forward to hitting Gearhart Golf Links near Seaside, OR again in a few weeks. Had so much fun the first time there 2 years ago and can't wait to test myself from the Stones again!
