  3. College Disc Golf To Have New Format Next Season

    College Disc Golf posted its rules today for the 2019-2020 season. The governing body’s new guidelines will impact the landscape of collegiate disc golf by altering and standardizing the qualifying format for the National Collegiate Disc Golf Championship.

    All collegiate teams will now be part of individual conferences and will participate in conference championship tournaments. The winner of each conference tournament will then qualify for one of 12 regional championship tournaments, with the top schools from each regional moving onto the National Collegiate Disc Golf Championships. The NCDGC will also be moved from early April to late May.

    Round two of the Jonesboro Open was suspended for the Open Division on Saturday and will resume Sunday morning at 7:30 a.m. local time.

    All players in the division had completed at least one hole prior to play being called off, so cards will resume with a shotgun start on the last hole finished. Players will complete their second round before playing their third later in the day. Open Women, who did finish their second round, will resume normal tee times Sunday for round three, and Open tee times will begin as scheduled at 9:36 a.m as well. More than 40 Open players were able to finish the second round.

  19. DGPT Switches Media Plan Again, Brings Back Post-Produced Video Providers

    In another change to its 2019 media plan, the Disc Golf Pro Tour today announced that all post-production video coverage would be handled by outside media companies starting with the San Francisco Open next month.

    “The way the season started with media rightly shook the faith of our tournament directors a little and we wanted to reassure them that we were taking steps to meet any commitments to the tournaments and their sponsors the rest of the way,” DGPT Director Steve Dodge said. “That included discussing their opinions on how they would like to approach post-production for their events and how that could align with our alterations.”

    Patrick Brown may have moved to Texas but he’s still got California roots. Brown inked a deal to represent Legacy Discs through the 2019 season.

    Brown was sponsored by Latitude 64 from 2016 until earlier this year when he parted ways with the company. In his first year of eligibility, Brown took home the Pro Masters 50+ World Championship in 2018. He also won the 2016 Tim Selinske US Masters Championship.

  27. Disc Golf Pro Tour Brings Smashboxx Back For Live Coverage

    After two events of in-house video production, the Disc Golf Pro Tour has renewed its partnership with SmashboxxTV to provide livestreaming of events for the remainder of the 2019 season.

    “To put it mildly, the media side of the season has not begun as anticipated. I mistakenly thought our team was fully in place, ready and able to execute the vision and plans we had been working on throughout the offseason,” DGPT Director Steve Dodge said. “With all that said, there is still reason for significant optimism.”

    Smashboxx will begin providing coverage at the Jonesboro Open.

  29. Disc Golf Scene On Hulu’s ‘Shrill’

    Disc Golf Hulu Shrill Ryan 

    Disc golf doesn’t always make it into pop culture, so when it does we appreciate it. Even if it’s a deprecating reference.

    In the season one finale of the Aidy Bryant-led series Shrill, now streaming on Hulu, love interest Ryan is seen out playing a solo round in Portland. Ryan looks to be pretty serious about his game, yet not at all talented. We feel ya, man.

    Paul McBeth 18-under par WACO Annual Charity Open Perfect Round Jomez

    When Paul McBeth recorded a perfect, 18-under par round at the 2018 Great Lakes Open, we weren’t sure if the feat could be repeated.

    McBeth matched his own heroics by throwing another 18-under par round during round two at the Waco Annual Charity Open.
