There’s always a bit of fun when two sports intersect, and this is sure to be no different. From the Formula 1 team, Lando Norris, Carlos Sainz, Alex Albon and Pierre Gasly will all be in attendance to showcase their best golf skills.
Norris will join alongside Rickie Fowler, while Sainz will join two-time major champion Justin Thomas. Gasly will meet another double winner, Collin Morikawa, while Albon will play alongside Max Homa.
Each of the four teams in the Netflix Cup will play eight slots of matches – with some surprise challenges along the way. After the match ends, the top team from each quartet will compete in a playoff to be crowned the winner.
Each match will be a scramble, with each player teeing off each hole. Once a driver is selected, both players will hit from that point and repeat until they finish each hole. The team with the lowest score will win the hole.
Norris and Fowler will face Sainz and Thomas in the first match, while Albon and Homa will face Gasly and Morikawa in the second match.
