The Netflix Cup, Netflixs first-ever live sports event, took place at Wynn Golf Club at Wynn Las Vegas earlier today, hosted by comedian, Bert Kreischer, PGA TOUR player Joel Dahmen, sports host Kay Adams, and NFL legendary running back Marshawn Lynch.

In a clash of wheels and irons, four pairs consisting of one Formula 1 driver and one PGA TOUR professional played eight holes of match play, swinging through some surprise challenges. The match-ups included Lando Norris & Rickie Fowler VS Carlos Sainz & Justin Thomas and Alex Albon & Max Homa VS Pierre Gasly & Tony Finau.

Additional highlights included surprise appearances from Mark Wahlberg, Blake Griffin, Steve Aoki, Collin Morikawa, and a Zoom appearance with Patrick Mahomes.

If you missed the live event, you can stream The Netflix Cup now on Netflix!

About THE NETFLIX CUP:

The Netflix Cup is a first-of-its-kind live sports event featuring athletes from two of Netflix's sports programming breakouts. Formula 1: Drive to Survive is now in production on its sixth season as the fandom continues to popularize the sport in the US. Full Swing, one of 2023's new series, is finishing filming on a second season and is credited with a rise in PGA TOUR fan engagement.

The drivers and golfers pair up to compete in a match play tournament at Wynn Golf Club at Wynn Las Vegas, the only 18-hole, championship golf course on the Las Vegas Strip, to kick off the week of the inaugural Formula 1 Las Vegas Grand Prix. The Netflix Cup streamed live on Netflix globally on Tuesday, November 14th at 3pm PT / 6pm ET.

Hosted by comedian Bert Kreischer, PGA TOUR player Joel Dahmen, sports host Kay Adams, and NFL legendary running back Marshawn Lynch.

The Netflix Cup roster included:

Formula 1 Drivers: Alex Albon (Williams Racing), Pierre Gasly (BWT Alpine F1 Team), Lando Norris (McLaren Racing), and Carlos Sainz (Scuderia Ferrari).

PGA TOUR Golfers: Tony Finau, Rickie Fowler, Max Homa, Justin Thomas

Fans enjoyed special Netflix-themed holes during the broadcast including:

The First Hole - Lights Out Formula 1

Once the lights went out, each twosome hit their tee shot and raced to the green along what was designed to look like an F1 racetrack, to see who can sink their putt first.

The 5th Hole: The Squid Game Hole - Red Light Green Light

The Squid Game doll turned her head away, at which point the golfers were tasked with hitting their tee shot before she turned her head back around. If they didnt swing in time, the golfer would have received a penalty.

Netflix is the premier home for great sports stories with popular series such as Formula 1: Drive to Survive, Full Swing, Untold, Quarterback, Tour de France: Unchained, Break Point and upcoming series following athletes in track and field, soccer, rugby and NASCAR.

The Netflix Cup, which is sanctioned by the PGA TOUR and Formula 1 , will be produced by Kevin Hopkins of Excel Sports Management, Bryan Zuriff, of BZ Entertainment, and Connor Schell and David Chamberlin of Full Day Productions, the company behind the ESPY Awards, the Oscars Red Carpet Show and the NFL Honors. Additional executive producers include James Gay-Rees and Paul Martin of Box to Box and Chad Mumm, Chief Creative Officer of Vox Media Studios.
