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."
