How To Follow Pro Worlds


It’s finally here.

After winter brought breakout wins and spring produced winning streaks, summer saw a collection of historic feats and firsts. With the early nip of fall now in the air, the 2018 professional disc golf season has finally built toward its zenith: the PDGA Professional Disc Golf World Championships.

Five rounds of singles play are in store from Wednesday, September 5 through Sunday, September 9 at Smugglers’ Notch Resort in Jeffersonville, Vermont, as the world’s best descend upon the Green Mountains to try and etch their names in the history books. With a full slate of real-time scoring and statistics, post-produced video, live-streaming coverage, and social media highlights, fans who can't make it to the Northeast will have plenty of options to follow along with the action until new world champions are crowned.

Scoring & Statistics

No matter the round or the card, UDisc Live has you covered. Keep track of the top contenders, big moves on the leaderboard, and all the stats you can handle every day from the time the first card tees off until the last putt goes down with the sun.

Social Media

PDGA Media will be on the ground all week bringing the sights and sounds from the event. Whether it's behind the scenes shenanigans on Instagram stories or photos and interviews on Facebook and Twitter, we'll be communicating across all of our platforms for the week. Plus, be sure to subscribe to our newly refreshed YouTube channel, where we'll post daily soundbites and other highlights from the tournament.

Post-Production Video (All rounds)

The road warriors at Jomez Productions recently passed the 80,000 subscriber mark, and they'll be pulling double duty with an expanded crew at Pro Worlds. First, they'll tackle the Open Women's lead card each morning, then they'll head back out for the Open lead after lunch. Add to their hustle some fan favorites on commentary, and it's a recipe that should keep viewers satisfied throughout the week.

You never know when someone will fire off the hot round from the second card, or where a Philo-batross might happen. With that in mind, we are happy to have Central Coast Disc Golf on MPO chase card coverage all week. Plus, with the dulcet tones of Ian Anderson and Cory Murrell on the call, there are bound to be catchphrases aplenty.

We'll do our best to fit everything you need to know into an easy-to-digest, easy-to-share package, all thanks to cooperation from our post-produced video teams and ace editor Murrell.

Thank you for all the coverage this year.

I'm a big fan of the scoring with UDiscLive, and the streaming with SmashboxxTV, which I will watch. I really appreciate the full coverage of FPO as well.

Again,
Thank You
