After watching the Fort coverage from the Utah Open, it looks like they really need to take some of the luck out of that course. Maybe with enough hard work it will be good, but it just doesn't feel suitable for Worlds, especially when combined with the meh viewing of Mulligan's. But glad to see my old hometown is getting some major disc golf love. I'll try to get back there to watch.

I don’t think a sporting organization should be knowingly limiting the in-person fan experience unless the organization has decided purposefully to keep the sport “small.”
Serious question....did more people watch the coverage online or in person? How many more? I'm betting the online viewing was exponentially greater than the people there live.

What brings in more money? Live spectators, or revenue from online ad dollars and the like?

This is just flat wrong.

Live spectators are a non-factor in ALL sports when it comes to growth.

I get what you’re saying, but are there sports that generate lots of revenue where no one watches in person? E-sports, I guess, but are those “sports”? Bowling? Billiards?

For most sports, the in-person audience grew first. Maybe it doesn’t have to be that way for disc golf. But I’m struggling to believe that a huge online audience will develop while no one shows up to watch live.
