Default USDGC to air on ESPN2

https://discgolf.ultiworld.com/2020/...-air-on-espn2/

“The final round of the DGPT Championship will be featured in a two-hour show on ESPN2 that will air approximately one month following the event. ESPN2 is the fourth most-watched cable sports channel (behind ESPN, NBC Sports Network, and FS1), averaging 304,000 viewers in primetime in 2019.

The broadcast will primarily feature the competition in the “final four” in both the MPO and FPO divisions. With just one round and one card to focus on, it will also allow the Pro Tour to dive deeper into the players’ stories with interviews and features.

“We’d like to deliver an enhanced post-production, where we give more insight into the players that are competing,” said DGPT CEO Jeff Spring. “We’re focusing on the final round, but we want to make it accessible for people who haven’t seen disc golf before.”

The broadcast is expected to air the weekend on November 21st or 22nd, the weekend before Thanksgiving, in the afternoon or evening, though a final date and time will be confirmed in early November.”

The devil is always in the details.
Sounds promising, let's all hope that DGPT and ESPN2 can deliver accurate and compelling content.

DGPT Championship, not USDGC. Might want to change the thread title.

That's the DGPT championship, not the USDGC.

Edit: three seconds late

I posted this in the Tournaments forum earlier, but no one commented.

Much better marketing angle than charging 20-30 bucks.
