Yes, at this point it does sound kind of nuts. But given as you feel good about where it's heading and you know more than I do, I'll try to keep an open mind.

Let's see how to reply..gently and with respect....some pros don't have clear speaking voices but as players, we don't care, it's one of our pros talking. A non player new to the sport, who has no idea who the commentator is, may have a different subliminal reaction. So the happy medium might be to find someone first that has a clear speaking voice and build from there.

Fwiw.. a local beloved Football player Jason Witten tried commentary after he retired. Well..it's hard to be like Troy or Tony. He's not retired anymore.

For me at this point, I'm probably only going to watch live coverage if it's the final round of a close tournament, where we really don't know who is going to win. I'll watch the last 18 or 9 holes of that and tolerate the downtime walking down the fairway between shots, etc. I might watch earlier rounds of a major. But other than that, I'd prefer to just watch post-production.

I would love to see the pairing of a true play-by-play person (not a player) with a color analyst (a player). I think that would elevate the experience of watching disc golf coverage a fair amount.

Not that anyone is asking or cares. But after a few years of watching coverage, that's where this recreational player stands on all of this.

Bingo. We are predisposed to like our pros because we're familiar (and fans) and because we trust that what they're saying is "expert level"

That doesn't mean they always speak like an expert, and it doesn't mean they're the right fit for the format.

I'm not opining either way on any particular commentator, I just really appreciate this point being brought up because it's a very important one that usually gets drowned out by the buzz of fandom.

It is funny you say that. I feel that Ian is the best play by play guy in the disc golf game. Granted, I have no idea how he would do on a live broadcast. I think it would be VERY interesting to see Ian doing play by play with Terry providing the color commentary of an event. I think it would be very, very good.

I also completely agree with you about Nate and Val, they are both really color commentators. They need a play-by-play announcer IMO.

Uli and Feldy reminded me of the first time I heard Romo and Nance do a football game -- the combination of great analysis and witty humor.
