For some reason, once again, this amazing event is the week as the Open Championship completely destroying any chance of good media coverage in sports.

I've said this before and I'll say it again.

When will the sport really grow? When we get out of our own way.

Doesn't a Finnish TV network usually broadcast this event live?

If only this event was held next week, we would have a HUGE audience and GIGANTIC payouts!

Spin18, the same company that was behind the Disc Golf World Tour, has been responsible for the recent live broadcast productions. I suppose the whole thing still isn't worth the financial effort in the long term at that level of quality. The last live TV coverage was the European Championships in 2016.

Meanwhile, I didn't really expect to see Big Sexy in the title of a sports news article by YLE.

I think it's the format more than anything else. The first round in particular. I'm fairly certain that they do it that way because it is a bit flukey (anyone can have a bad round or bad stretch of holes, or the opposite) and thus gives the illusion of tighter competition.

I'd rather see this be more of a stand alone event instead of a single afternoon. Make it two days of match play, Ryder Cup style. Day one, two rounds of doubles matches. At least one round should feature mixed teams (one male, one female) so the women aren't isolated in their own group the whole time. Day 2 is singles matches. Each match is worth one point, most total points wins.
