The RBC Canadian Open took a playful dig at Netflix after 'Full Swing' star Joel Dahmen fired a 65 in the second round. He is now placed in solo third, just two strokes back.

Dahmen, who became an overnight star after Season 1 of Netflix's Full Swing, is having a good week at the RBC Canadian Open so far. On Friday, May 31, he carded a bogey-free 5-under 65 to keep himself in contention going into the weekend. At 8-under, he is just a couple of shots behind 36-hole leaders Rob MacIntyre and Ryan Fox.

Following Dahmen's impressive day at the office, the RBC Canadian Open took to Twitter to praise him, writing:

"Have a day, @Joel_Dahmen! * @netflix intensifies *"

Notably, Netflix released the first season of Full Swing, a golf documentary series, last year. The show garnered many views and became an instant hit. While it featured popular names like Rory McIlroy, Justin Thomas and Jordan Spieth, it was Dahmen who stole the limelight. Following the first season, he became immensely popular among golf fans.

Joel Dahmen was featured in the fourth episode of Full Swing, Season 1. The episode focused on his relationship with his caddie, Geno Bonnalie. They provide some of the most hilarious moments of the series, but the episode was not only about comedy. Dahmen spoke about losing his mother to cancer, his battle with cancer, and his friendship with Bonnalie.

Joel Dahmen was also seen in the second season this year. In the latest season, the golfer talked about how he gained newfound popularity after the first season but performed quite poorly. The series also focused on the mental struggles that he was trying to overcome.
