I hope it's great and I hope that it does end up bringing new eyes to the sport and it becomes a normal thing.
I think if they make it a regular thing, it could eventually become a staple on cable sports TV. They already show darts, cornhole, billiards etc.; there’s no reason disc golf can’t join the repertoire. Especially something like Worlds in a normal year with tons of spectators. Plenty of drama and “big event” value in something like that.

This maiden run probably gets an extremely low rating, so it will take someone with clout believing in the potential.

I agree. If cornhole can get regular airtime, so can Disc Golf. It would be sweet if we could get Worlds, USDGC and maybe European Open on cable every year.

It only takes one Tweet from some icon to get people to notice what's going on...

The Disc Golf Pro Tour’s Dynamic Discs Open was decided two months ago, so when the opening round coverage debuts on CBS Sports Network tonight, there will be no suspense in terms of results.

There is, however, excitement, for what may, or may not, play out in the following days, weeks, and months. I’m eager to see how the presence of disc golf on nationally syndicated cable TV will impact the trajectory of disc golf’s growth.

After viewing the first of four hour-long specials Jomez Pro and Dynamic Discs will be airing on CBSSN, I can state two things with confidence:

Thousands of people will see disc golf for the first time and be inspired to give it a try.

The Jomez-led production is clearly a step up from the already impressive next-day tournament coverage with which we’re all familiar.
Quote:
Compared to a typical Jomez Pro production, everything not related to the filming of the actual event itself is more polished. This includes the intro segment, on-screen graphics, backing music, hole fly-over previews, and player profiles. It was a little jarring not to hear the StarFrame theme music to open the episode, though.

The CBS logo is everywhere, which I think is a good thing. The graphics package looks exactly like CBS’ golf coverage. It lends legitimacy to the broadcast, and to me says that CBS has no problem being openly associated with disc golf. I’ve watched a few other similar productions, where the network is paid to air sports coverage, and this isn’t always the case.

Commentators Nate Sexton and Jeremy Koling did an admirable job of taking direction and fitting into the mold of a typical golf announcer. I can’t help but wonder, though, if it would not have been better to let them be the Big Sexy we all know and love. They would have come off as more natural and a better fit for the “X Games of Golf” image that other parts of the production — such as the selection of players chosen for the feature card — seems to offer up.

On the same topic, one of the most noticeable contrasts between this and the usual coverage we get was the commentary from Koling and Sexton. For understandable reasons, this production assumes the majority of viewers are unfamiliar with disc golf and provides lots of useful background information to enrich their experience. I like the idea, but not so much the execution. Asking Koling and Sexton to blend it all into their narratives is asking too much. I’d rather see little pop-up graphics share the same info. It seems crammed into the program right now. None of my three helpers mentioned the commentary interrupting their enjoyment of the special.

One of my favorite parts of the whole thing is hearing the deep, rich professional voice-over guy say, “Disc golf on CBS is brought to you by . . .” Also, his enunciation of the word “disc” is worth listening for.

I’m wondering why the Follow Flight feature was not used more, and not at all on drives as they happened “live” (as opposed to replays). CBS and other networks routinely use this feature on live golf coverage because it is so difficult to keep track of a ball in flight. The behind-the-tee-pad camera angle was used on nearly every throw off the tee, and from this vantage point the disc quickly fades into the distance. Missed opportunity.

Speaking of cameras, when I heard Jomez would be employing many more cameras I had hopes for more than the standard behind-the-thrower/catch cam/close-up angles. Specifically, I wanted to see a wide-angle side view where the disc starts on one side of the screen and soars to the other side, flying past numerous trees and other hole features. I think in ball golf that angle conveys a sense of how far the ball travels, and it would have worked here as well. Does everything have to mimic ball golf coverage? No, but they have a lot of similar elements in the sports that could have been cribbed for disc golf coverage.

First impressions This is cool to see but I wish it was a different course than the Country Club. I know this was Jeremy's thing but the course is just so wide open and boring, and the overheads are just making it look more wide open. I do like how nate and jerm are trying to add info on the sport for people who have never seen disc golf, but i kind of wish they just commented and let maybe graphics do that.
