Default 2018 USDGC

3 weeks to the start the US Disc Golf Championship.

Who's going to win? Who's going to lay an egg?

Of course, the details of the course will again change. As of this afternoon, most of the layouts have been marked (flags now, ropes in 10 or so days)--nothing making it easier, just the opposite. Biggest concern right now is the effect of Hurricane Florence this Friday but the volunteers are ready to get everything in superb shape.

The real question is will there be live video coverage or does jussi still have a hand in depriving the masses?

I swear I heard on one of the podcasts, probably Smashboxx, that USDGC was going to have live coverage of some sort this year. That they were hiring a production company to do it (so it won't be Smashboxx). I just can't find any mention of it anywhere and I'm not about to go back and watch or listen to old episodes to try to find it. Someone else can chime in if they have confirmation.

With the number of viewers (>11k) and the amount of superchat money that seemed to be flowing, live video coverage should be a no brainer. Post production and the “smashcut” will always be there when you have the time to watch, but the drama and excitement at the finish can never be matched.

Really who watches the Super Bowl on Tuesday.

Smashboxx did say that a production company that normally covers Ultimate will be there to do live coverage. They talked about whether they would string fiber around the course, what the cost would be for that, what the video quality would be, and if Terry could be sent in as a mole to sabotage them. That last part might be wrong, I don’t remember fully.

Latest Florence model I’ve seen shows the eye of Florence going directly over The SC/NC border. Hopefully everyone can stay safe.
