2020 USDGC Live Stream | Round One

3 903 views | 21 Oct. 2020

Action from the first

Action from the first round of the United States Disc Golf Championships.

Produced by Fulcrum Media

Ed Neely

First of all, it's unfair to compare live coverage with the post-produced coverage of Jomez, Central Coast, and others.

Second, Ian, Philo and Mike are great choices for commentary. Ian is the original voice for this era of video coverage. Philo knows the game, always has interesting comments, and let's face it, is the coolest dude in disc golf. And while I'd rather see Nate Sexton cutting up this course, what a bonus to have him on the mic.

The camera works leaves much to be desired. Too many shots where they are too far from the action. Many overexposed shots. Some focusing issues. Can't you hire seasoned DG production outfits to help here?

I get the live streaming with pay per view. For some, this is the most exciting way to watch. But most viewers don't have time to watch 12+ hours of coverage. I'd suggest hiring Jomez to edit it down, add graphics, replays, follow flights and the other magic they do so well, and offer that after a reasonable period of time.

Keep its up!

Shane Eudy

Is this the same coverage people paid to watch?

Tom A.

What amazing coverage. Joemez could take notes off this pure gold.

jay m

Is this an official account?


This is awesome! Too much complaining going on in the comments. Just enjoy the coverage! We're lucky to get anything at all.

Patrick Rane

What the fuck is this? :D:DDD Such a pity for the (already small) sport to see this kind of coverage

Ian Allen

This was so confusing. Is there gonna be normal coverage?

Brandon H



The USDGC happened?! I didn't even know... wow... umm... That's kind of upsetting.

Edit - I don't understand why filming crews get restricted. One would think they would want anyone out there filming that wants to be there. The sport needs to keep growing, not get stuck behind pay walls.

A-A-Ron K.

Philo is the man.

Chris Davies

USA: We can't beat a virus, so you can't have any spectators.
USDGC: That's OK! We don't want anyone to watch it.

Mike Maness

The production was very poor on the video. Lots of out of focus, blurred shots.

Cyrus T

Where is the post-produced coverage?? This 2 week delay on any other coverage being allowed killed the momentum of the sport, and I still can't find any post-produced coverage.

19:51 high quality filming

Michael D

Horrible commentary, not the masters

Patrick Mackey

This camera work and the way they film the player reaction is such a subtle thing but makes it feel like you are right there with the players.

Murt Backlin

Don't be on the mic again please.

Dan Powell

So sick of hearing about Eagle's hand, let it go already, obviously it is affecting his play so let's not ponder on ever hole whether it's affecting his play.

Brian H

Nice to see Ellen made the lead card.

Backhand Oksanen

Climo is doing a great impression of Gregg Barsby doing a Climo impression.


I wish jomez did the lead card :(

R Hath

That intro ??

Chris Hart

Really can't get behind the "golf" type commentary. Puts me to sleep every time. Great course but the commentary could use a bit of emotion. just a bit.

John Dorn

Anyone else think Climo sounds like Bob Ross?

Pot Dragon

Andrew, certainly has a face for radio. The obese Grizzly Adams look is like the millennials signature.

Seriously consider salad.?

Ham Sandwich

Here's a thought. Eat a cheeseburger every once in a while and perhaps you won't be so frail that punching grass breaks your hand.

I Dunno

That intro is fucking epic! Hahaha then Ken Climo starts talking

The SpinTV

Thank You so much for tuning in to our 2019 USDGC Lead Card Coverage <3

Cultured Punk

Jesus christ... i thought bob ross was dead... then I heard this commentary. WHATS UP BOB ROSS!!! You still painting homey!!!

Dalton Barrett

Doesn’t sound anything like Bob Ross. And jomez is better. Shit, central coast is better.

Justin R

he actually hurt his hand? lol

David Thomas

Watched this on mute because of the annoying static and commentator thats not Ken.

DFF wormi

I didn't know Leonard Cohen is alive and casted disc golf

chris rymer

jomez is so much better lol hope the get the lead card next time

Neil Rankin

I think the more formal style of announcing by Ken Climo is beautiful and would serve the sport well.


Kind of a meh round. Nobody going for anything. Just safe play and not a lot of excitement. Not a fan of that bean hole at all.

Garrett Russell

The coverage was great, except the Duvalls speaking every round. Having them talk about an embarrassing course design like it's Maple Hill was a little too cringe. Really hoping they hear all the negative feedback and remove the gimmicky aspects like the mozzarella sticks.

Kyle Knoblauch

Wait.....Eagle really fractured his hand when he punched the ground?!? Maybe next time he'll take Champ's advice and use his non throwing hand to punch the ground.....

Michael McCormick

Hole 8. Hypothetically if Nathan’s Disc would have hit Eagles Disc hard enough that it got on edge and rolled down the hill what is the rule on that?

Benjamin Eric

Wow. This was really fantastic coverage.


The speak is still muffled and over produced. Too bad you didn't get jomez pro to do it for ya.....

Russell Emerson

Ken Climo should start doing audio books.
I really enjoyed his commentary; His knowledge of the sport is just on another level compared to everyone else. On a previous video, he mentioned that someone should have pitched up with the putter upside down on 18. I can see how he won so many championships with that level of shot selection.

Some Hippie

Great stuff! Thanks a lot!

Joe Vegas

Apparently, the glasses didn't make Eagle any smarter.

Tony MacDonald

FUN FACT - If Eagle wasn't a VEGAN he would have never hurt his hand punching something soft lol. #VeganHands


Did Jomez lose the bid to show the lead card?

David Madl

Too many ads, sorry

Brian Reardon

Climo has a great voice for commentary, and his insight into the game is unmatched! Well done gentlemen!


it aint jomez but i guess it will do


Iron Leaf!


Let's get it!

Dustin Eggers

Yalls tournament coverage has been EXCELLENT! Very professional and very well edited and I love the commentary with the Champ, a champ of all things. Great job Spin!

Mitch Trubisky

Bro that narrators voice got me feeling some type a way but idk what lol

Jona Lee

Champ’s voice is so deep and soothing my 15 month daughter fell asleep listening to this

Dylan Trenum

Where is Jomezpro?!!

david becker

is this Bob Ross or Ken Climo?

Nasser Rihan

Kenny is so good at announcing.

Billy Jack O'Toole

putting andrew on the screen was a terrible decision. He exudes the unprofessional look DG gets the reputation of. My wife who only knows disc golf through coverage I watch exclaimed, "WTF is this guy' and laughed.

Martin Riggs

Ground 1
Eagle 0

Matthew Barber

Love KC's vocab. When was the last time you heard the word dastardly used in a sentence?

Pete Mills

With respect & thanks for the coverage, a lot could be learned by emulating Jomez's coverage. Too much padding, too much wasted time off the top. Get to the competition, enough with the dramatic music & review of last year. Get to it.


always use your off hand to for punchstrations.

Alex Luecke

Would much rather have the course overview as a separate video than interleaved with the tournament coverage.


I wish you guys would update us on the chase card during the commentary. Because lead card is blowing it and I have a feeling someone from chase card is in first place through 9. It would be nice to know. You have to remember, most of us watching this coverage have no idea who won or what happened. I pretend I'm watching it live when I see these coverages on youtube.

L k

My feedback on the commentators: very american, both with very deep bass in their voice and a certain level of steady slow rhythm in their commentating. Reminds me of baseball commentators. I bet americans are very accustumed to this kind of commentating, but to me, it is very sleepy and boring. It would be more interesting to listen to commentators with a higher emphasis on the emotions of the competition, and with more insights to players strategies, rather than "empty" speech about the course or players histories. Just my two cents, hopefully I can give you my perspective.

Seth Heasley

Love the coverage, but the golf announcer voice stuff needs to go.

Skyler Snook

Thank you spintv! Overall, this weekend and coverage is like a second christmas, definitely better than worlds because of tradition and consistency at the same place. Also, thank you volunteers!!! Disc golf is headed in the right direction as long as course development matches the growth of the sport. Stay connected and in tune with your local parks departments people! Eventually I hope the top 100+ can make an honest living throwing the disc. Thanks again!


Nathan Queen vs. Tyler Labine?


Good for the sport to have more intentional players at the top of tournaments that are located in the states.

Christophe Smith

Albert Tamm - Getting called a big strong guy by the Champ. What an honor!

Alex Casler

The static noise in the audio makes this almost unwatchable.

orion khan

Wow, breaking your hand by punching the ground is just frelling dumb.


Many KIndness to America and all it"s Goodness and Disc Goler Folk. . plays like Ground hogs day . I would guess that Ken and Jamie would want/need a break from repeating themselves for days straight. I w0uld like to hear from so many other players in the field and it seems to be a pretty narrow slice of voices who can commentate. I would like to Hear new perspectives every round I LOve 'm all just want More perspecives. after K and J give me there scoop I dont need to hear it 3 more times Love Y'all Keep Slaying it1!!

Jason Humphrey

exciting play, great coverage, the commentary is nap worthy. Not bad but no energy...

shaw ween

Great round, good coverage. Def not big sexy tho

Eric Burgmeier

sounds like Jamie has gotten a lot more comfortable doing commentary. Sounds more natural and not forced. Great production improvements as well. Bravo spinTV.

Chris Davies

So good to see Albert Tamm on the lead card, final day. Thanks a lot, SpinTV!


why did the champ whisper on hole 5? great coverage though!

Joey Mankoski

The intro is so epic!


Amazing to get Bob Ross to do the color commentary

Adam Gainsley

Love the commentary. Can we lose the hole by hole course designer commentary after R1 though. It's getting really tedious skipping it on every hole.

Matt Snyder

Hole 3’s an awesome idea. But it’s a little too much. No one played it aggressively all week. Maybe if it was later in the round. But 3 holes in, no one’s trying that.

They need to make either it a par 3, and just eliminate the first shot. A 350-400 foot left-to-right shot through those trees would get some action.

Or eliminate the mando, move the basket a few feet and make the whole golf green a hazard (and the bunker OB?) a 750 foot par 4 with OB that tight to the basket would be awesome.


simon did get to the hole 5 basket in 2 air shots.

Aaron S

I was so surprised by this coverage! I thought Jomez were the only ones producing quality content nowadays but I have to say this was actually more professional than even them! The commentary was refreshing and flowed great! Definitely keep fighting for these lead card spots and you’ll find yourself growing fast!

Darryl H

25:29 why is there a Florida flag if it is in South Carolina?


This is so boring

Derrick Jeffress

Jump to the start 3:35

Bryan Delgado

Innova: Let jomez pro do the production for the lead card. From the boring, awkward, and unenthusiastic commentary, to the stilted animations, this broadcast is a shameful example of how good talent can be left out by corporate nepotism.

Tyler Henke

Bob Ross with the call, love to hear it!


Eagle that is the dumbest shit ive ever seen. You need to keep your head cool. Youre my fav but you have anger issues to sort out. You still have manymanymany years of disc golf ahead of you. You have enough skill to be a champ. Its in your head.


Can't watch because the rewind, ff, and pause buttons will not remove themselves from YT screen. Samsung Android device.... 1st time ever having this issue on this device while watching YT videos


Oh Jess. Boxer fracture from hitting the grassy ground?

pali dinto

Climo is the best announcer. I feel like I am watching golf when he comments

Joshua Little

Meh compared to Jomez. Wish they had the lead card last round.


Wow.. What an interesting intro. Don't know what to say....hmmm... Interesting.. Not sure what to think.. Anybody?

Stuart Gray

Jomez is three times better.

Benjamin LeBlanc

SpinTV 13:07 "Eagle injured his hand during round 3. He is playing with a fractured hand, and limited shot options." Little bit of white washing history there. Eagle punched the ground during round 3. Most sports the player would loose their sponsorship immediately over that shenanigan.


Is this real?

Elijah Martin

End of hole 7, J.T. talking about James, "he hasnt started sliding the wrong way quite yet..."


Va in the building, Conrad is THE man!

Chuck Morris

I was at the worlds when part of the wall fell in 04. Had the privilege of playing a round during the week was very challenging as I hadn’t been playing very long then


Epic intro, keep up the good work!

m barn

Fast forwarding through the “Slowvalls” describing the holes got so annoying.

vJacks stacks

Never up never in .. a ball golf adage? Did golf cups used to be in trees? I've never seen one that wasn't in the ground.


27:51 Couldn't keep a straight face for that line, omg


I'm guessing this will be an unpopular opinion, but I think this course is crap. All gimmicks. Give me a natural course without man made barriers and natural OBs instead of simply calling things OB that there is no reason for.

Seth Yeanoplos

The coverage itself isn’t bad but the color correction was horrible. James’ shirt changed colors multiple times every hole. Your blue levels fluctuated way too many times.


What happened to Eagles hand?

Drew Walter

Excellent professional coverage, thanks so much!

Karin Goodman

Watching too learn from them for summer 2020 James is good Paul Mcbeth beast

disc crusher

Wow spin tv really stepped it up. Thank you guys for making my weekend and for bringing one of the best coverages of disc golf out there. You guys and JOMEZ PRO really have this sport dialed in on know how to draw people in. Thanks again cant wait to watch the rest of the first round then off to watch #2. ?? ??

Paul P

I’m new to disc golf. Who is the commentator that talks like Bob Ross?
I’m just waiting for him to say, “happy little trees...”

Austin Zambrano

Who narrated that intro tho?! Optimus prime? Love it! ?
