The Community of Disc Golfers and About All Things Disc Golf

Hi everyone, I just wrote to ESPN having them cover some of the tournaments or championships. I think we can have a major effect on them if we all write and ask. Make sure to tell them how fast our sport is growing. Just go to espn.com and go to contact us. Thanks everyone. I don't know about you, but I would love to watch this great game on TV.

I'd love to see Lee Corso don the ears, picking Climo to win the USDGC

sent an email. thanks for posting this. I'd love to see ANY more coverage of disc golf events on tv or any form of regular media that normally covers sports but neglects disc golf.
sent mine....keep on bugging them!
Put some links in your email to some of the cooler videos in here, that'll engage their vision.
It nice to see ppl have the same thoughts that i have. I have called espn and talk to a few ppl about covering disc golf, they know alot about disc golf and its events. In the end it comes down to they will not do ne this with disc golf do to the fact it isn't big enough at this time.(ppl and money) I also tried to get them to let me write about the events and a story on disc golf but they wouldn't lets that happen either. I truely think no matter how much we try to get them to do this it is up to the pdga and the TD of these events to try to make them bigger then they r now. REMEMBER IT STARTS AT THE LOCAL LEVEL. If you can get on your local news why should u be on the national news? I truely think this can be done but it will take everyone to get this done.If ne one want more info about this plz e mail me ill be happy to talk about this.
I'll email a friend of mine here in Charlotte who happens to work for ESPN. Hopefully he can pull some strings and get something, anything going to get disc golf on the station. Just have to find his business card.
I read that you need a 60k purse to be on fox sports and 100k purse for espn. someone was brought in the pdga and his soul purpose is to contact sponsers and try to make it happen. We will see.
Here is the response I got. Many of you either have or will receive the same.

Hey disc golfer,
Thanks for the feedback but your sport is in it's infancy. When disc golf has been around for 200 to 300 years then call us.
