Jamie Neumann Joins Apple Golf Comedy Series Opposite Owen Wilson

EXCLUSIVE: Jamie Neumann (The Deuce, Lovecraft Country) has been cast in Apple’s new 10-episode comedy starring and executive produced by Owen Wilson, and created, written by and executive produced by Jason Keller (Ford v Ferrari).

From Apple Studios, the untitled comedy follows Pryce Cahill (Wilson), an over-the-hill, ex-pro golfer whose career was derailed prematurely 20 years ago. After he gets fired from his job at an Indiana sporting goods store and his wife walks out on him, Pryce hedges his bets entirely on a troubled 17-year-old golf phenom, played by Peter Dager.
