The Community of Disc Golfers and About All Things Disc Golf

I thought that this was some great news from the PDGA. I figure I would post it and we could discuss our thoughts on it here. Please try to be civil. I think this is a good start and shows that even though we don't think it but the PDGA is trying to do more to promote the sport. Brian Graham was a great interview and I will have the rest of the podcast out soon. Just as the interview ended I lost power at my house so I have a little bit of editing to do to get it done.

This is the forward thinking I think some have thought the PDGA didn't have. I have heard rumors but here is the confirmation that we will see Disc Golf on cable somewhere. It's a start!!

Very interesting. I look forward to hearing more about this, not enough info to form a strong opinion one way or the other just yet. 

this should be a welcome way to spread awareness to the sport.

Sounds like an interesting start ... it may be a good fit

Cool!! Too many people live right next to courses and never have heard of Disc Golf. I hope they make it a household name.

make it a high school sport and watch the boom

I would watch the sport on TV, but then again I love the sport. I also watch watch the sport of sailing on TV.

Most folks are into only the mainstream sports, and many folks are particular even then. The TV audience for disc golf will be very narrow and limited, but maybe the quantity will be sufficient to justify the means.

I try to promote the sport of disc golf whenever I get the chance, but my priority is actually playing disc golf. I figure it's their loss for not trying the sport at least once to see if they like it.

Disc golf offers many advantages over other sports (inexpensive, solo, year round, etc) just to name a few.

I actually find it unbelievable that everyone doesn't play. But hey, I prefer no crowds so I am good with the way it is now.

Interesting concept.Comcast will take the money and still want their viewers/customers to pay to view.Certain area markets  have the monpoly for tv coverage dealing with comcast.

likewise,school sports should get involved.Not everyone likes contact sports.

I'd be all for it. Disc golf is really the only sport I watch on "youtube" for instance that holds my attention. I don't watch any other sports and stay awake anyway.  I hope this happens i'll watch it all the time.

Who paying to air the show? The PDGA members or a corporate sponser.?
