Default USDGC coverage

While there is no “traditional live stream” at this year΄s event, stay tuned to Facebook for segments of live video of round action commented by 2009 World Champ Avery Jenkins, who’s also no stranger to the twists and turns of the Winthrop Gold Course.

Facebook Live segments instead of a live stream. Ugh.

Feels like a bit of a step backwards for a premiere tournament that always had a solid stream and one of the more 'advanced' production setups.

Guessing the contract was up and they just got tired of sinking money into it for the past couple years.

Thoughts?

I know some are content with post-edited rounds (and I mostly am)... but for these big events its always nice to watch it unfold in real-time and chat.

It is Jussi. He mentioned after the first DGWT that were live with cameras and things that as they didn't get 4-5000 viewers they would do it this way which is kinda me. Sure SpinTV after production is quite alright but for something that is as big as USDGC it is kinda meh that they only do Facebook live which at best you can actually see when they putt but driving and ranges on drives are kinda redundant.

Seems short-sighted to use the low viewer counts of an event that had zero cache with the potential audience to justify doing away with live coverage of one of the biggest events in the world. An event that has had live coverage longer than any other (a pioneer beyond just live video too), and certainly one that has been in the 4-5000 viewer range at times.

I understand the disappointment of the La Mirada viewership. I get not bothering with live coverage for the European events that would air at less than peak hours in the US. I don't understand scrapping live coverage of the USDGC.

It's weird ... I'm pretty sure I watched the USDGC live last year and there was about 3.5k viewers. Perhaps they shouldn't award these big tournaments to the DGWT when they can't even keep the status quo in regards to live streaming

If this is correct, agreed. Give it to Smash.
