For most of the formative years of disc golf, tournament directors were challenged to attract spectators and fans to their events, so that sponsors could be convinced our sport had a significant following. These days, however, with the ballooning number of media outlets and distribution platforms, disc golf has been able to flip the script. Now, instead of the challenge being to bring fans to the disc golf tournament, the latest media technologies have allowed us to take the tournament to disc golf fans. And that is no more apparent than with this month's broadcasting of the 2014 PDGA Professional World Championships TV show on 26 regional sports affiliates around the world.
Friday features the Men's Open Leaders from Blue Lake. Lead card tees off at 1:50p ET/10:50a PT, so we will go Live to air at approximately 1:35p ET/10:35a PT. It's MOVING DAY on DGPtv! Tune in and follow along with live hole-by-hole scoring.
When DGPtv began their Live Internet broadcasting operations in 2009, "Broadcasting the Best in Disc Golf" was adopted as the network's tagline. Now, as disc golf's only Live Internet broadcaster beginning it's fifth season, this moniker holds true now more than ever.
Aired on 24 Regional Sports Networks throughout the nation and Barbados, the half-hour broadcast was the season finale for the 19-show Beach Sports Network was available to 82.2 million households. After the highly successful DGPtv produced shows that featured great highlights, interviews, and graphics during the first three BSN episodes, the 2013 USDGC show focused more on the competitors to carry the show.
With in-depth interviews and insights from the event’s top competitors, Brinster, Doss, Schusterick, McBeth and others, you will get in intimate perspective on the top disc golfers in the world, as well as a better understanding of the spirit that carries them through the PDGA Tour.
The sport of disc golf has a number of cities around the United States that are worthy of the "mecca" moniker. NorCal, SoCal, Austin, Des Moines...all are great focal points for our sport, combining great courses, great clubs, and great events, into communities that have truly embraced our sport.
