This article on PDGA.com seems to support that.
Yes, he teed off on hole 1 last year, while on the registration list, with no intention of playing the event.

So 9.99 for the live broadcast.. might be worth it if the coverage is good and commercial free.. Are they gonna have giveaways? Can anyone comment on how often innova commercials are going to be ran on the broadcast? 1 an hour? 6? This could easily backfire on them.

Are they doing it on YT or some bad DGPT.tv website type of broadcast?... If its the latter, will there be live chat?

I typically only tune into the live coverage for the final round back 9 or so. No way am I paying $9.99 for that.

I'm paying the 10 all day if I'll be at home to watch it. Excited about the course changes mentioned as well.

Im fine with the PPV I think $ 10 is more than fair for 3 days of coverage.

If there is no live chat, it isn't worth any money, imo. There is so much downtime in a 1 card DG live stream and the live chat is essential to break up that monotony...

For you maybe. Chat isn't essential to everyone, especially if watching on a TV rather than a computer.

From what they've said before, there are going to be 8 cameras live. Presumably that's 3 on the lead card, one on the booth, and at least two covering hole 17. That still leaves another extra camera to maybe roam around. They'll be able to fill some of the downtime.

They've already got my $10, and I don't expect to be able to watch the final two days at all. I'll support live broadcasts whether I can watch it all or not.

I'm not paying for it. I'll watch the post-production, or not bother. Besides, college football is on TV for free...
