I do agree with a point that money is involved. With that being said none of them are filming and following for money. I am sure that some of them do well now, but most of them are using decent handhelds (for the record no idea how much or what camera differences are). One thing I do know is that they are nowhere close to what PGA is using but they are on a smaller course scale than PGA is so it would still be achievable. I am sure that they all have thought of that for sure I am just curious to see what is the deal breaker or missing link to it?

I suspect that you have no idea of the amount of technology, infrastructure, financial backing and manpower that goes into the production of a PGA tournament broadcast. Honestly, the comparison is apples and oranges.

The missing link is that there's not much return on investment, as a great deal of us who play casually or even competitively don't find watching disc golf tournaments online all that entertaining, whether live or edited. Better camera technology, or better commentary or fancier graphics packages aren't going to change that as those things were never the problem.
