Quite frankly, I do. No need to go over the tech, because we all know it's possible for 2 people anywhere to record audio at the same time while watching a video. I'm saying...get 2 people on board who will be the "voices" of the media house. Can grow with the company, etc, etc. I could see different players, guest commentators, etc, for the casual rounds, fun events, etc, but for the big events, why not strive to have continuity in regards to commentary?

So you need to find two people who have expert knowledge of disc golf, know the players, their style of play, know the courses, are available to do commentary together (similar work/life schedules) and are always available for the big events?

Plus they would need to be affordable as the "major media houses" don't have a ton of money to throw around.

Gotcha, seems super easy.

WOW. So thrilling, it really does change things a lot when you don't know the results.

The final round of the European Open 2019 IS the new high water mark for our sport.

We got the best players, at (one of) the best courses, with (arguably) the best event, the biggest gallery, top notch video and commentary. It all came together perfectly and I was glued to my seat watching it all unfold.

Sexton said it right when he said the gallery sounds different with that many people.

The only small disappointment was that the final few holes didn't have as much drama because of the score separation.

Amazing job to Jussi and all of the organizers of the event, SpinTV and just.. Finland in general.
I learned the hard way to stay away from DG social media when I want to watch post produced/edited rounds from tournaments I am interested in seeing. Had a couple of tournaments ruined by the inevitable *spoilers* getting posted in the past. Not this year

Default Yup

It is a great course but is in many ways like USDGC ( I was there last year)....park golf with roped off OB...not to the same extent...there are some wooded holes...but much of it feels the same...and I don't think that this is good...lightstands and sidewalks and buildings...

I would prefer that majors are more traditional disc golf...regardless of being spectator friendly...give me Pittsburgh World's (minus the university course) or Smugglers Notch (where I also was last year), where even in the roped off holes you don't have sidewalks and buildings (except to some extent on hole 18)....

I understand the desire for stadium golf, but can't really embrace it ..

lol... seriously? Are you expecting or even wanting that much information from disc golf commentary? The best sports commentators are also spectators in my opinion. They enjoy watching the sport, chime in with a tad bit of knowledge, and don't dwell on the boring bits or overcompensate with excessive verbiage. But I digress... I get it that some peeps want all that technical info, and that's why I'm always pressing for each major tournament to have an updated ITB that directly corresponds to what the players are using for this tournament. Get two people on board for the entire season, and chances are they will be up to speed on the most popular players fairly quickly.

Imop.. disc golf commentary just needs this...

"Hole #1, Paul Mcbeth on the tee."
(Paul drives, booth is quiet, allowing the viewers to watch the release and early flight of the disc.)
"Paul's hyzer release is tracking nicely toward the basket. With a nice skip on the fast green, Paul is in good shape for a birdie opportunity."

Anyone with minimal knowledge of the sport could handle that.

We don't need this...

"Hole #1, Paul McBeth on the tee. I birded this hole earlier with a great anny flex shot, let's see if Paul does the same."
(Paul drives..)
"Oh man...that came out early, that could cut roll, yep..it's rolling, wow... I don't see how that happened. Like I said, I was able to birdie this hole earlier and I'm surprised Paul has started out like this. Ok, the disc is still rolling, wow.. it finally stopped, that's going to be a tough par for Paul".

Feel feel to flame...it's just my opinion. I know some agree, I know some don't.

You are half right, i would say. I personally like to have a "color guy" with a stay-on-topic guy. I think it helps in the appeal of the edited coverage .
Although, Sexton has to fight Jerm to stay on topic and evaluate each shot. Jerm will ramble over ppls shots constantly if Sexton doesnt step in.

I personally am getting a little tired of Jerm but i appreciate the light-heartedness somewhat. He is just overkill, especially since they got bigger.

I want to hear a Sexton/Perkins combo and see how that vibes.

Flame me too pls

There are few combinations that I have found I dislike, even the "giggling women" that happens from time to time are still entertaining, but I have found Ian/KJUSA to perhaps be my favorite duo to date.

I think a KJUSA/Sexton combo could be interesting.

As I've said before, Jerm is basically the Gary McCord of disc golf.

Disc golf is best without commentary. Old ones from Thediscgolfguy, where you hear all the sounds and sometimes chatting in the group. The best commentary i heard was from Eagle and Simon beeing themselves and bantering eachother. Like real conversations, not forced.
