Anyone watch Full Swing on Netflix?

Iím not really spoiling it much by saying that there is no truer saying in life than money doesnít buy happiness.

Golf is an individual sport but for me the last clip from the last episode (cleverly set up by Netflix I reckon) is poignant.

I much prefer to be hacking around at the weekend and having a few trips to Portugal on the beer every year than becoming one of those rich  lifeless robots.

Well unless you're holding back on signing with a tour, I think you are ok and you probably don't need to alert Portugal that you're on your way!

Well when I do sign and when I win the fedex Iíll invite you over to celebrate the $18,000,000 win rather than having a wee glass of wine in the locker room on my own.

Sihwan Kim has finished dead last in both LIV events this year - a combined 58 shots worse than the winner and has earned a cool $240k for that.

It's a nonsense tour. It will need to change radically for it to have any interest from Joe Public. If and when someone defects the other way and asks back onto the PGA tour you' imagine whatever credibility it has it will have lost.

DJ played fairly well last year. Apart from that I think it's a pretty dour affair.
