In a preview of the series written by PGATour.com’s Cameron Morfit, Finau discussed what it was like to be part of the show and the experience of having a television crew around him.
“They were everywhere,” Finau said. “On off-weeks they were home with me. I felt like they did a lot of filming. I knew when I said yes that that was a possibility. I told my wife. She was all-in; she didn’t mind it.”

Finau added that the crew ended up spending time with him and his family in the Beehive State.
“It got to a point where it felt like they were just a fly on the wall,” Finau continued. “We got to know the crew because it was the same people. They visited Utah, we had a great old time. They ended up being people I’d call friends now. I’ve got a great relationship with some of them.”
“You picked a hell of a year to start following the PGA Tour.”
