I don't know about elsewhere in the country, but in SE Michigan we get more and more disc golf coverage, but it's never in the sports pages but in "Community" or "Lifestyle." No more! A really great article about Al Schack's victory in the Great Lakes Open made the front page of the Ann Arbor News' Sports Section this week, with box scores and nice photos and everything. You can see the online version here.
To me, it's a major step up, with thanks to reporter Seth Gordon (who plays disc golf).
