Tens of thousands of amateurs buying discs they don't really need is the financial foundation of the whole disc golf industry, especially the professional side of disc golf.

Pro coverage is one great long, clever advertisement for these companies, convincing saps like me to give them yet another 15 dollars in the hopes that THIS disc will fly like the guys I'm watching on youtube.

If pro disc golf didn't exist and somebody at a disc manufacturer just came up with the concept in order to advertise and sell more discs they'd be considered a marketing genius.
Didn't DGA come up with the original disc golf basket, I know the game was already out but the sport was not at the modern level yet and was more a afterthought for big all around type disc tournaments using other methods like low ground baskets trying to emulate traditional golf, metal poles, or even original style objects until a way to play disc golf more fairly was invented with the modern Basket.

1. Highlight the player’s name for who is throwing. You really want people to know these players, keep highlighting who’s on screen. We see this in golf coverage.and the players name, and what stroke, is one before every shot.

2. Show more of the leaderboard throughout the round. Let us know how players on other cards are doing. Is someone else making a charge? More info the better.

3. Find a way to show highlights of other players as well. Even if you just have one camera stationed at a signature hole - think #17 at Sawgrass or #16 at Augusta - let’s see other players just to break things up.

Other than that, coverage has come a long way. Very impressive.
1. Applies even to post production. It may take a while to learn to recognize the player by shirt color etc, and what if they all wear black? Also par 5s tend to get confusing easily since its tough to keep a track on how many throws so-and-so is into the hole. Simple graphic would help.

On 2. We see this more this year then ever with post production after 4-5 holes then doing it again in the same round. Before it was at best once a round if you got to see that at all from the post production crew, only CCDG and Jomez really did that.

On 3. We sometimes see in post production if nobody else has the second card something from the second card like the people doing something very impressive from time to time on a round or in a tournament, though right now only Jomez has the power to do that.

I wish there was a graphic showing what the player is shooting for. "for par", "for birdie", etc, etc. As in the attached image.

Ratings question:

Paige throw a 70 in R3 and that gave her a rating of 987 . . . .a 70 in MPO also gave a Rating of 987.

But FPO play different tee on 3 holes. . . if FPO play a "easier" layout than MPO, why is the rating the same?

The FPO layout actually had a higher rated par IIRC.

Maybe so, but all 3 holes looks quite a bit harder for MPO especially holes 4 and 5

Hole 5 was much harder related to par for FPO than MPO, there were no birdies in the whole tournament. Even hole 4 had only two.

Sure, but if FPO had played from the MPO tee. . .the hole would have been even harder for FPO.
So that made me wonder why the rating was the same when they play different tees
