The numbers are in and they show that disc golf's network debut on ESPN2 was an unqualified success. With over 225,000 total viewers, including 115,000 in the key 18-49 year old sales demographic, the two-hour broadcast, which featured the final round of the 2020 DGPT Championship, was well ahead of any other ESPN2 programming for the day.


Even more impressively, disc golf outperformed any other Tuesday night prime time programming shown by ESPN2 going back at least as far as October 13, beating out stalwarts like College Football, UFC and NFL Live.



#ESPN2, #Growthesport, Excited! Amped! Ready! These are the words that show how exciting this was!
I couldn't wait to share across my social media platforms! This is amazing and has a chance to blossom into something that could be shown every night on a prime network!
Thank you JomeZ, big and sexy commentary, espn, pdga and to the players! Keep DiscGolf in the spotlight for more to enjoy!

Really enjoyed watching this, opened my eyes up to a new sport. Hoping to find some courses on the Nature Coast of Florida to try this out.
