How To Follow the Glass Blown Open

The biggest tournament in disc golf calls for coverage that is equally sizeable.

Sure, there are nearly 1,600 players who will descend upon Emporia, Kansas, this week for the Dynamic Discs Glass Blown Open, making it the most attended event in the sport. But there are still countless competitors who didn't make the trek -- maybe you're one of them? -- and want to watch from the comfort of their homes and offices. 

We've got you covered.

The GBO will feature the most video coverage a PDGA National Tour event has ever seen, with two cards of live streaming and five cards of post-production for four straight days. That means it's time to fluff up those Barcaloungers and prep some fresh bags of popcorn. It's time to get comfortable.

Tune in starting Wednesday, April 24 at 9 a.m. Central!

Open Third Card 

The host team from Dynamic Discs isn't content with simply putting on the largest event in disc golf history. They're going to film it, too, with next-day coverage of the Open division's third card. In a stacked field, that means the opportunity for more hot rounds being captured on camera.
