Discmania Deep in the Game - the extremely popular series of instructional Disc Golf videos has been one of the most popular resources for all Disc Golfers looking to better their game since its inception in summer 2012. In just about 18 months the completely free videos have gathered over 450 000 views on Discmania’s YouTube account. By the time these videos were published they set a new standard in production quality of any Disc Golf videos to date and still remain to be probably the most professional and informative set of Disc Golf technique tips available anywhere on the web.

The Professional Disc Golf Association announces that Avery Jenkins has resigned from the PDGA Board of Directors. 
Avery writes:

"I hereby resign my position on the Board of Directors so that I can focus my energies on my game and other outside initiatives to promote the sport. I felt that as a Board Member I could only do so much to give back to the sport but I feel that as Player that I can do so much more to increase the exposure of Disc Golf Worldwide. Thanks to everyone including fellow players and PDGA members for their tremendous support."

A Preview of LIVE Internet TV Coverage of the USDGC

No one can ever really know what storylines will emerge during this year's 2009 USDGC.

Two of the game’s best. Major titles and World titles. Brother and sister battle each other to claim DGU bragging rights. This season Avery and Valarie Jenkins will compete head-to-head through the use of the DGU Handicapping system to see who can best the other.

After the first round Avery was trailing the world's top ranked disc golfer David Feldberg by two. Dave broke the existing course record by four strokes only to have Avery shatter his course record a day later by three with a blistering 1085 rated 51. Avery's four stroke lead would be difficult to overcome and after Dave's five on hole eight, the result was all but determined. When asked about his lack of aggressive play on the back nine holes Dave explained that Maple Hill could bite you and he saw a greater opportunity to lose second than gain first. Avery would end up winning by seven.
