Watching disc golf with the CBS playername/score golf graphic in the top corner is awesome, lol.

Yeah not the best course to showcase the sport but it’s a start. It’s surreal watching this produced this way. I played golf for 20 years and became a disc golf addict almost 2 years ago and get so excited to see the sport legitimized this way and these players getting some great exposure.

Very smart keeping it within an hour, even if it means skipping shots and entire holes. Makes time for a few little informational packages and of course commercials. I would prefer the uncut round but this is a great intro to the sport. Hopefully we get more action tomorrow and Friday.

I'm just glad it's on during primetime and not like 2:00am.

Keep in mind that Dynamic had to pay to get this on CBSSN.

CBSSN was not actively looking to add disc golf content.

With that said, good on them for making the investment.

Odd coverage though, alot of missed shots, some missed holes, got some player bios though. Not a highlight reel but not exactly a full round of coverage either.

In some ways, it felt more "professional" it I did find it more disjointed. Perhaps I'm just used to the continuity of basically getting every shot on the lead card.

Taking what DanJon said at face value, good on DD for funding airtime on network TV.

So glad I did a free YouTube tv trial instead of paying for this. Skipping shots and holes is not the way forward. Hope day 2 is better but production quality aside it’s big thumbs down from me

Not that i dont want this to succeed for the sport, I think i like the more "intimate" style of Jomezs youtube coverage. I dont know if "professional" is the right word, it honestly felt "stiff", too much like ball golf not enough like its own sport. I think disc golf needs its own identity, not copying another popular sport. It didnt help this was on a golf course.
