I don't think any pro looks at how to get motivated the way others see it as in, now that they will be live they are stepping up their game. That means they don't give their best all other times.
I would guess if anything it makes them more nervous.

In my experience, there are all sorts of reasons someone may "come to play" more on one day (or to one tournament) than another. There are little things that can help people focus more or less. I agree that pros are focused in general ... it's hard to play as well as they do and not be focused. But as far as getting in the groove and staying focused throughout an entire tournament, there are all sorts of things that help you gain focus or lose it a little bit. I think it being on TV will help get some pros into the zone more.

IMO it is more likely to do the opposite.

I don't disagree with you; I think it will make many of them nervous. But for some of them, as the stakes are higher, the more they are able to focus. call it "clutch" or anything else you want.

I agree players of any sport can get into a zone and play lights out. But I don't believe that's something that can be turned on or off at any given time by 98% of people.

I've been in the zone before, we all have, and have no idea why it started or what made it stop.

It's all about the biggest paycheck in the history of disc golf. 20k to both the MPO and FPO winners. Not bad for throwing plastic... not bad.

Dwarfed by what people get for kicking plastic.

Wendy's used to sponsor tournaments. If this sponsor sees -% return on investment this won't last long either.

It's good to see but let's see how they are 2 years from now.

I've been in that zone before and I can remember years later why I got into that zone. I'm not saying I'm any better at it, because I can't control it. It was a specific circumstance that arose and it hyped me up.

I very much agree with you; it's not something that can be turned on or off. the TV info will help some, not affect some, and probably psych many players out.

Yeah you can look back and realize why you were in the zone. The most famous one I know of was when Brett Favre lost his Dad and played that Monday night lights out, even for him.
