Lando Norris is excited for the inaugural Netflix Cup, a one of a
kind sporting event put on by the streaming platform. The McLaren
driver will be taking part in the event alongside Carlos Sainz,
Alex Albon, and Pierre Gasly who will be competing with pro PGA
Tour players. It will take place at the Wynn Golf Club in Nevada,
as part of the festivities on the run up to the inaugural Las Vegas
Grand Prix. The drivers will play an eight-hole match, with the top
two teams advancing to the final hole to battle for a chance to win
the inaugural Netflix Cup title. “I’ve not been playing a lot of
golf at all over the last few months, just for different reasons,”
Norris told media, including RacingNews365 . “I’ve kind of lost
touch but I’ve tried to get back into it in the last few days, and
I will continue to, before Vegas next week and before the event.
“I’m sure I’ll be alright – or at least get carried by my
teammate.” It’s not the first time Sainz has played golf this year,
after he impressed during an appearance at the Ryder Cup earlier
this year. Norris revealed that he would be pairing with pro golfer
Rickie Fowler during the Netflix Cup, with the two set to go
head-to-head with Sainz and Justin Thomas. “I watched all of the
guys and Ricky is kind of a bit more back on form lately, comparing
to where he was at the beginning of the year and last couple of
years,” said Norris. “I’m excited. It’s going to be the first live
event for Netflix, which is a cool thing to be part of. Nice course
and everything. “I don’t know how the whole event is going to work
but I’m sure it’s going to be good fun.”
