I'm excited that it will air on ESPN2 in November.

From the article:
Quote:

The broadcast will primarily feature the competition in the “final four” in both the MPO and FPO divisions. With just one round and one card to focus on, it will also allow the Pro Tour to dive deeper into the players’ stories with interviews and features.

“We’d like to deliver an enhanced post-production, where we give more insight into the players that are competing,” said DGPT CEO Jeff Spring. “We’re focusing on the final round, but we want to make it accessible for people who haven’t seen disc golf before.”

The broadcast is expected to air the weekend on November 21st or 22nd, the weekend before Thanksgiving, in the afternoon or evening, though a final date and time will be confirmed in early November.

The new television contract was negotiated directly by the Pro Tour and will not interfere with the standard media distribution during the event: both live and post-produced coverage of the DGPT Championship will be available as normally scheduled. The DGPT is also not paying ESPN to air the event, though they are paying for the production.

I don't think so. It says it will be on ESPN2. I understand that to mean it will be part of the regular programming on that channel.

Per the PDGA:

Live Coverage will begin just prior to the chase card teeing off for both MPO and FPO fields each round, and will be featured on the Disc Golf Network Thursday through Saturday, and free for all viewers on DGPT’s Youtube channel for Sunday’s Championship final.

There will be a full-slate of post-produced next-day coverage coming from JomezPro, Gatekeeper Media and GK Pro.

And as if that wasn’t enough, viewers can tune back in to ESPN2 in November for the special 2-hour production of the Tour Championship final round.

What kind of additional motivation do you think the possibility of significant face time on ESPN2 might bring to the players?

For MPO I would figure that it might drive McBeth. Would love to see him make the final.

It would probably have a similar effect on PP in FPO, although she seems to almost be ensured of a place in the final. It would really be a shame if somehow she didn't. This is nothing against her competitors, but I think it would be best for the game if she makes the final.

Is there a discord channel for live chat?

And a big motivation or pressure from the sponsors to have "their" players on the ESPN card. . .not good to be "left out" on that "free advertising"

because they weren't going to give their best until ESPN showed up?

My speculation tends more towards things like "will there be a NT after 2021?"
