What is being included in this disc golf coverage on ESPN2?
The ESPN2 coverage of the Disc Golf Pro Tour Championship will primarily focus on the final round of both MPO (Nathan Queen, Drew Gibson, Paul McBeth, and Adam Hammes) and FPO (Missy Gannon, Sarah Hokom, Heather Young, and Hailey King) with a $30,000 first place prize on the line.
This year’s coverage will differ from the 2020 debut by focusing less on a shot-by-shot coverage approach and focusing more on the storytelling of the event. It was produced by the DGPT’s Disc Golf Network and Bluefoot Entertainment, a company that specializes in producing content for delivery to ESPN and other sports platforms that has been working on the Tour’s ESPN2 productions since last year.
What kind of ratings should the broadcast draw?
Disc golf’s initial appearance on ESPN2 last November drew 225,000 viewers (and mostly positive reviews), but it had little sports television competition in its primetime slot. This year’s broadcast is going head-to-head with NFL games, the most-watched programs on television. That could limit its viewership, but it should still be seen by tens of thousands of viewers, many of whom will be watching disc golf for the first time.
