At the Disc Golf World Tour Championship here in Rock Hill, South Carolina, the final PDGA Major of 2016, we have The SpinTV’s production crew making sure this historical event will be seen and heard both inside and outside the disc golf community. Naturally, the best way to follow the action is to come see it for yourself. If, however, you’re unable to make the trip to the legendary Winthrop Gold disc golf course, there’s plenty of ways you can follow the event online.

Live Scoring

We will be providing live scoring from each tournament round. The scores of each group will be posted online after holes 6, 12 and 18. The top groups will feature live hole-by-hole scoring during each round. In addition to traditional scoring, we’re also collecting Disc Golf Metrix data from all rounds. The Metrix stats will be accessible only to our registered website followers and we highly recommend everyone to create a free account to access the full DGWT online experience.

Please note: The scoring page will be updated with round 1 groups before the round starts.

Daily Wrap-Up Videos

For those following the tournament at home, the daily wrap-up videos are a fast and easy way to catch up on action from each tournament day. Our daily wrap-ups will feature player interviews, Disc Golf Metrix stats analysis and footage from the day’s round. The daily wrap-up shows will be hosted by Jamie Thomas and the 2009 disc golf world champion Avery Jenkins.

Play-by-Play Videos

The SpinTV in cooperation with Jomez Productions will be producing lead card* Play-by-Play videos from each round the event. These videos are set to be released at a fast pace, with at least one part of the coverage of each round coming out the next day.

*(During first round we’ll cover the feature card)

Social Media

We will have our staff on the field doing active social media posting throughout the tournament week. Our main social media channels are Facebook and Instagram, so make sure to give us a follow! Since there will be no actual live broadcast available from the event, we’ll make sure to give the social media audience an extensive coverage of happenings on the field in the form of photos and videos. Similar to the European Masters, many of these videos will also be integrated to the live scoring page, so you can see how some of the players wound up to their scores on select holes, almost in real time!

The Official hashtags for the Tour Championship are #DGWT, #USDGC2016 and #DiscGolf. We encourage all players and followers to use these hashtags in their social media posts about the event.

In addition to the DGWT social media channels, the USDGC Facebook page and the Innova Instagram account & Facebook page will be posting a lot about the event, so we recommend giving those a follow too.

Facebook Live

Just like at the previous DGWT events, we have Mr. Avery Jenkins producing the popular Facebook live broadcasts with his phone from select holes of each round. The best way to catch these live streams is by following our Facebook page actively during the tournament days.

News Articles

We have our own editorial staff accompanied by the experienced people behind the narratives of USDGC.com posting stories from the event. We will post round recaps after each tournament round, as well as emerging stories as they appear. This year we’ll be using both the DGWT site as well as USDGC.com as a source for stories and tournament information. We also recommend following PDGA.com, AllThingsDiscGolf.com and UltiWorld for top notch online coverage of the Disc Golf World Tour.

At the Tour Championship, we’re proud to have the highly talented Mr. Eino Ansio working behind the lens to capture the event. Eino’s previous work has been featured heavily at previous editions of the European Open, European Masters and Konopiste Open.
