Default Disc Golf on... TV??

Technically it is true. I have been working with someone at the FNTSY.com network and they have agreed to put DG on their channel as a trial. We are going to start by showing the final rounds of the DGPT events every Friday night at 8ish. Then replay them Sat or Sunday afternoon.

FNTSY is a primarily internet based channel devoted to all fantasy sports. But they are on some local cable providers as well (hence the TV part).

While we are happy that someone is interested in our sport, we are not getting our hopes up TOO high long term. There could be some future potential sponsors to come out of this as we work with their sales team, but at this point it is really just a trial.

When I get more info on when it will start showing, I will follow up on here.

Baby Steps.

Keep posting reminders. I’m sure if we rewatched a round each weekend it’d help the ratings.

Some of the public (a lot) believe disc golf is already a fantasy. Would that make it a double fantasy? O-no!

We are in early talks to integrate in SkipAce fantasy disc golf into it. But first we want to see how it goes.
