Ah, yes, just reread your post. You were talking about being able to measure his impact.

Yet they capitalized on the opportunity to see how many paid subscribers they could get who wanted to see him play his first tournament. If they gave it away for free, it would have been a missed opportunity to raise their subscriber count.

Penny-wise and pound-foolish?

That was my immediate thought when they made that decision.

The underlying primary goal for DGPT is to discover the most effective ways to monetize their tour for financial sustainability. Whether or not their experiments "grow the sport" are bonuses.

Yes, that was my point...

Penny Wise, Pound Foolish
There is a British saying, “penny wise, pound foolish -- making decisions with small amounts of money (pennies) that end up making bad sense for affecting larger amounts of money (pounds, as in Great British Pounds).”

Well yes but in order to monetize you must first quantify. If you don’t collect sufficient data the ensuing valuation relies heavily on speculation and that’s obviously a less desirable metric.

My point was they are running experiments and gathering data with their money and resources. Whether you think various experiments will work better than others is simply opinion at this point without sufficient data.

It was a VERY VERY successful weekend for the DGPT. We are happy and just hope to be able to maintain this momentum in the next few down weeks. Stay tuned for more info.

Penny-wise pound foolish VS Bird in the hand worth 2 in the bush.

I paid 8.99 to see the Brodie round and then never even found time to watch all of it. I love flipping on live disc golf when it happens to be on and I happen to have a chance watch it, but I doubt I’ll continue to pay 8.99 a month for the off chances the stars align.
