Masters is way more entertaining and competitive than fpo. Paige wins just about everything in fpo, to the point that it is not interesting to watch because it is not a contest. And then when she doesn't win she blames it on poor course design . Fpo courses need to be tailored to the fpo skill set.

I didn't want to step on any toes or get in the way.

He counter-offered to let me use one of his pro cameras to do the shooting, and to collaborate on the project.

I'm no pro videographer, (I was a still photographer 25 years ago when film was still a thing, including sports photography), so the video footage in the can is a bit naff, but workable. The plan is for me and Kimberly (the world champ in the video) to do the commentary for the round once it's edited.

Very cool! And I doubt that your video quality will be worse than some others I have seen from supposedly more professional postings on YT. Your efforts are appreciated and I will, at some point in the near future no doubt, be watching your video coverage of this final round

FPO is something I could care less to watch. All this hubbub about growing women's disc golf? I don't think it's ever going to be anything besides a small minority sideline. Not that it shouldn't be pursued, just speaking from observation, but women's sports in general are just not that big.

There is a huge untapped market potential in the masters/grand masters players. They have more time and discretionary income. Lots of them are past sports enthusiasts who still may want to do something besides watch, and lots are past golfers who gave up chasing white balls.

Just my thoughts.
MJ the Discraft player even plays in open if the better tournaments does not have good masters at the tournament and has finished in the top 10 at Most of these events.

The other Masters are ones that wanted to play golf but the game is just something they do not want to spend that much money on or can't play as much as they want so they found a cheaper alternative.

I play Disc Golf though not a masters player, due to being frustrated with the putting part of Golf.

Why were there only 4 competitors in women's 40+? Interesting that Des and Elaine King didn't play here and opted for Worlds.

MJ is not a masters aged player till next year...

He decided awhile back during the Mullett craze, that we was all party. So the business just ran away.


Sorry MJ... couldn't resist.
