Full Swing is back for Season 2 and there's some familiar faces returning, some new stars to follow, a shock merger announcement and a mouthwatering Ryder Cup two-parter to finish with.

The show that goes behind the scenes on the PGA Tour, the Majors and the Ryder Cup is brought to us by the team behind the highly successful F1: Drive to Survive docuseries, which is now in its sixth season.

Full Swing Season 2 begins with Rory McIlroy and his reaction to the huge merger news before focusing on stars like Rickie Fowler, Wyndham Clark and Tom Kim, while shedding light on Alex Fitzpatrick's struggle of being in older brother Matt's shadow as well as Joel Dahmen's struggle with his rising fame and depleting golf game.

That all comes in the first five episodes, before 'Pick Six' starring Justin Thomas and Keegan Bradley takes us through the build-up to Zach Johnson's six wildcard picks for Team USA. The seventh and eighth episodes then see the series head to Rome's Marco Simone Golf and Country Club for a look at the Ryder Cup like never before.

We get to see how the US and European captains make their picks, all the pre-tournament build up in Rome including practice days and the opening ceremony before concluding with the three match days in Italy.

Take a look at each of the eight episodes and what to expect from Full Swing Season 2:
