Japan Open on TV

Turned on my TV this morning a little after 6:30 and the channel happened to be on the Fox sports station that shows the Beach Sports Network. To my surprise, there was disc golf on - turned out to be a half-hour review of this year's Japan Open.

Unfortunately, the program description on the guide had no mention of it. The show was simply titled "Beach Sports Network" and the description was equally generic.

I looked for the same program with the same description and found it at 6:30 am again this Sunday morning. I can't guarantee that it is the same thing, but I thought I'd mention it here in case anyone wants to DVR it.

Anyhow, the show itself showed some quick highlights, lots of slo-mo action shots, and a good bit of a behind the scenes look at the experience of being at the tournament and being in Japan.

Anyone else seen this? My apologies in advance if this has already been covered elsewhere...

Volleyball receives more recognition inter/nationally than DG by far. I played it quite competitively as well as a few other sports. Did (do?) you only play baseball or something?


Wish I saw this, I can't find the coverage either. Bummer.

DGPlanet does a monthly show on Beach Sports Network, they've been doing it for a year I think. So if you get BSN, voila, you have disc golf on TV. It's produced by John Duesler and shot by Dave Manzo.
