Working for me now finally. Too much blah blah, not enough disc golf so far.

Working for me too. Seems they only have cameras on hole #1 and 17. They claim there will be more later on in the week.

Two tips if they want this to be mainstream someday.

Better announcers. Don't know where they get these guys or why they got picked, but there HAS to be someone better to do the announcng than the morons they get.

Give air time to the top pros, not the scrubs. Learn from how they broadcast ball golf. Do they show every single scrub that's at an event? No. They show the leaders and the top pros that people want to see...the household names. We want to watch good players play as many holes and shots as possible, not every Joe Schmoe play the same hole.

i know that everyone likes maceman, but he's a horrible announcer. too much inane commentary that doesn't have to do with the tourney. we get it mace, you don't know a lot of the younger players.

bush league production, but hey, i'll take what i can get.

Would love to see Mark Ellis and Scott Papa doing the announcing, that'd pretty sweet. You need someone knowledgeable of the game and the players, who is articulate and entertaining. I think they both fit that bill.

I was wondering if others were having intermittent problems like me. I thought it might just be the firewall at work or something, but it seems a bit more pervasive than that.

Not sure if this is the same thing that's happening to you but after watching for awhile the feed will freeze and take down my Internet connection. It's not just my connection but the whole company's. Could just be coincidence but I'm not sure. Anybody experiencing something similar or is it just coincidence that I'm watching and having Internet problems?

Yeah too much yappin. Need more disc golf.
I'd be hesitant to call every player who's not widely known a "scrub." Where ever these OPEN players are from; in their repective cities they are the best and not scrubs. Don't forget, a player must qualify not just register, to play in this event. As a matter of fact the well known players are't playin so hot and a scrub might pull off a huge win. Win this tounament and you'll become one of the elite.
Lookin forward to tomorrow.

DGR's own MDR3000...shot a great round!!!

From his Facebook., "Shot a 67 (-1) first round. Pretty happy with the round...let's see if I can do it again."
Mike also noted that the wind was horrific!

Great Job Mike!
