In terms of woods golf, probably. But woods golf isn't the future of championship event disc golf. It will be usage of existing, premier ball golf courses that will be used for our championship events. Infrastructure is already designed and built for large galleries.

And yes, disc golf will be an insanely popular spectator sport. All the trends are pointing that way. I'm just mapping out the growth, I don't need to be nostradamus to predict this, the math is already there and certain.

If I could buy stock in disc golf futures, I'd mortgage the house and everything I own and push all my chips in, no question about it.

I agree with a lot of this but IMO the future is on properties built for disc golf rather than existing golf courses. The golf course thing is just a phase as these newer facilities begin to come into existence.

The future will continue to unfold where sustainable money can be made or expenses are manageable. At this point, it's still unclear what elements in our evolving disc golf ecosystem are truly financially sustainable from what may appear to be sustainable by observers not privy to the details. Manufacturers are in the best position to forecast and shape the future but are the least likely to share that information publicly for competitive reasons.

That was brutal, but what makes it not as bad as at DGPT is that it was on Hole 1, she had time to recover. At DGPT, it was on hole 17 of the final round and cost her $15k
