Comedian Bert Kreischer, PGA TOUR player Joel Dahmen, sports host Kay Adams and NFL legendary running back Marshawn Lynch will host the show live as the teams battle for the chance to win the maiden Netflix Cup title. “The Netflix Cup” will kick off the week of the first-ever FORMULA 1 HEINEKEN SILVER LAS VEGAS GRAND PRIX.
How to Watch
“The Netflix Cup” will be broadcast live on Netflix beginning at 6 p.m. ET on Tuesday, Nov. 14, and will be available on the streaming service following the event.
Each of the four teams will play eight holes of match play featuring some surprise challenges. Following the match play, the top team from each foursome will compete in a playoff hole to crown a winner. Each match will be a scramble, with each player teeing off on each hole. After selecting one of their drives, both players will hit from that spot, repeating the process until they finish out each hole. The team with the lowest score wins the hole.
