I think many of us are in denial of this fact. VERY few people go to a disc golf tourney just to watch.

I'm not saying its non dg spectators. But if your throwing a tournament and need sponsors, I would show them this video. We are not at the level of notoriety yet to draw a crowd. But if we show people videos like this then more people would want to watch.

People want to be apart of a crowd. It's a mob mentality. The more people that know about a sport and participate in it, the more it will draw spectators.

Why does the PGA draw crowds? 2 reasons; the party, and because a lot of people there play golf. In the video the people were spectators. 4 out of 500 were competing right then. The other people could have been drinking or getting ready for the next day. Instead, they were spectating and enjoying a party.
