Netflix viewers set for surprising Rory McIlroy news in new golf documentary

Netflix viewers are in for a treat as Rory McIlroy will be a regular feature in the upcoming documentary Full Swing.

McIlroy was not originally listed to take part in the documentary but will now feature heavily in the Netflix series.

The series will air from February 15 and includes top names such as McIlroy, Justin Thomas and Ian Poulter.

And it will detail the rollercoaster season that saw many of the PGA Tour's top stars defect to LIV Golf.

And Speaking to Mirror Sport, producer Chad Mumm confirmed McIlroy's involvement.

He told the Mirror: We had to have a few surprises! That materialised during the season.

"We met with his team several times in the lead up to the show. They were very honest on his focus being on his golf this season, and potentially engaged with him in series two.

"I sat down with him in the summer. We told him we needed his voice, there was no guarantee we could do this again and if he waits, people won't hear from him until 2024 at the earliest and now is the time, the golf world needs his voice. To Rory’s credit he was like ‘Yeah, I’m in’.

"An hour later [after agreeing to be involved] he was wearing a microphone and walking around the locker room, having these private conversations that we were part of.

"He gave us more access in that period of time than we had got from anybody, it was incredible. He was always on our list, so give him a lot of credit for letting us in, because he certainly could have said no. From that moment on he was all in."
