What time do I set my DVR for to see Disc Golf on TV?

Postby keith johnson » Wed Sep 28, 2011 11:14 am

Better Mornings Atlanta on CBS 46 on Oct 3rd will air the show taped with the 3 anchors at Wills Park along with myself, Brad Hammock and Chris Foley.

I will find out the time the segment will be on later this week, but the show airs between 5-7 AM and then another new hour from 9-10AM.

Justin Lock who is a Disc Golfer, along with Brandon and Tracye who were playing for the first time spent alomost an hour on the course learning about the game and playing a few holes. I do not know what will be shown, but it will take creative editting to make Brandon not look the the typical first timer (with 00 feet forward and 50 feet in the air and going left from the moment it leaves his hands. Tracye was nervous and not confident at first but did throw flat, level and pretty decent distance as time wore on. She did get a real five (almost made the 40 footer for 4) on hole 5 throwing 3 decent shots after her first hit the trees on the left.

I'm curious to see how it turned out for the piece, and I hope you will tell all your friends to either watch or tape to see later.

When the video airs, I will also try to see if there will be a link to watch it in the future and to post online.

I don't know how to set my DVR by time...

Per the PDGA, there is some show called Happy Endings that will have DG on it tonight. I assume it's about a massage parlor? I doubt it will be as favorable as your TV showing.

Happy Endings.

I can hardly believe I sat through 22 minutes of that unmitigated tripe to hear characterless actors say "Frolf" 9 times.

Perhaps I'm a little harsh, as we also got to see a 4 second slapstick scene of a girl hit in the face with a disc on the "course" (disccatcher traveller in the background and plastic soccer cones marking the tee).




What a dreadful show.

Agreed. I cant believe the PDGA was promoting this on their site. Blatant disrespect for D Golf.....And the show sucked donkey balls on top of that,,,

I will personally guarantee that the CBS 46 Better Mornings Atlanta piece will NOT disrespect or treat Disc Golf badly, and with the right editting of Brandon throwing, it could be a comedy also! :mrgreen:

That is what THIS thread is promoting - the good Local Disc golf piece done with an anchor that plays the sport - not the crap the PDGA promoted. :roll:

Very nice piece. Job well done guys :thumbup:


Only thing that I thought might have been cool to add to the segment would have been to show how much farther Hammock could drive compared to the anchor people :D (just to kinda show people with a TON of practice and experience the discs can go freaking far)

All 3 segments they ran had different banter after the piece ran and during one of them that was sorta mentioned how different throwers are as they said muscles didn't matter as much as technique for throwing.

That Keith Jackson guy :mrgreen: said some good stuff, but they did mangle a couple of other things I said - they left out the Alpharetta Visitors and Convention Bureau in people responsible for Wills baskets and turned the part about the area adding 12 courses since I moved here into I helped get 12 in the last few years when I only had a hand in 4-5 and 3 directly.

Overall a pretty good story!
