I messaged lcgm8 on YouTube and got some unfortunate news. He said that he was there filming but was at the mercy of Jussi and TheSpinTV for how much he was allowed to upload. He said that the coverage of the Presidents Cup will only 12 minutes long. Ugh

Hole 17 is actually pretty difficult even for these guys - two years ago the average result was 3.42. It's 460 feet long, narrow and steep (you don't really see it on tv). Hyzer shots can skip ob very easily. And Sunday was a really windy day.

Yeah, the length of the hole is hard to appreciate from video footage, plus every one of them on the lead card turned over their drive at least some in that wind. Feldberg just turned over a little worse than the rest.

How can a td put restrictions on coverage? Unless it was contracted out to the television station and Spintv to have them only cover it. I hope Spintv coverage is good then.

I know 1 of them followed me for all 4 rounds.

yes 17 is the hardest par 3 on the course probably hardest hole period. i finished -1 for the 4 rounds on that hole (3 pars 1 birdie) which i wouldn't doubt was the best average.

No possible way that either of these things happened because the top players in the world were in attendance.

*sarcasm off*

I can't believe that people on this site have said that....

Haha Disc Golf is a sport in Finland! If you go to InterSport one of their top Sports store Discgolf has a BIGGER section than basketball and american football combined!

there is a reason 270,000 viewers watched it live, I can't wait to hear how many more people and countries tuned into the live or archived stream.
