Disc Golf Live #53 is in the hands of our broadcast partners across the country. We've titled this one “Return of the Champ,” to recognize Ken Climo's quest for his first PDGA World Championship title in the Master's division. Our coverage includes footage from rain-soaked Renaissance Park as well as the Final Nine. Scenic Traverse City, MI, is the setting for the story of a disc golf course created from broken hearts. First-time contributor Ian Anderson of Central Coast Disc Golf sent along coverage of the End of the Trail Classic from Visalia, CA, and long-time contributor Billy Crump of ClashDVD provided footage of the inaugural PDGA Championship from the International Disc Golf Center in Appling, GA.

We're happy disc golfers can view episodes of Disc Golf Live on Youtube, but the real reason for the show is to bring DG to folks who've never seen the game before through broadcasts on local and community access TV stations. If you have a station in town and aren't seeing DG on TV, drop us a note and we'll help you get set up to receive free copies of DGL for your station.
Among the newest stations to pick up DGL via online download is the South Washington County Telecommunications Commission in Minnesota. http://www.swctc.org/
This station serves Woodbury, Cottage Grove, Newport, St. Paul Park, Grey Cloud Island. Its too early to know when the shows will be scheduled but expect some DG on TV soon.
