    Disc Golf Hits Prime Time TV

    The PDGA was contacted by Paramount Studios in early August to submit PDGA branded items for use as product placement on the ABC television show, “Happy Endings”. The sitcom places a fresh and comedic spin on modern friendship, focusing on six lifelong Chicago-based friends in their 20’s and early 30’s navigating various stages of work, relationships, marriage, and dating. The disc golf themed episode is currently set to air on Wednesday, September 28th following “Modern Family”.

    While increasing interest and popularity of this sport is evident in the worldwide participation and growing membership of Disc golfers, portrayal of this sport in the media is imperative for prosperity and awareness on a global level. Television is a monumental step in securing our place in sports history.

    So Disc Golfers and “Frisbeeterians”, spread the word and Tune in to ABC on September 28th. If not for the sake of the sport, then to ensure that you will never have to explain the definition of Disc Golf again.
    Don't just walk past that candy wrapper on the fairway-- I know you saw it!

        While I believe that it's awesome disc golf will get some national coverage on a major network, a cheesy sitcom that will more than likely be terminated after this season is not what I would call good.

          I'm hoping that the coverage does not make fun of the sport or exploit the easy stoner/slacker stereotype.

            or have newbies throwing aces at a 120 ft. hole and act like this is the norm.

              Or the balding/overweight stereotype like they did in Seinfeld... that would also suck... right, Scott?

              Not that there's anything wrong with that.
              “I believe I can hit 18 greens, hit every fairway, you know — Vision 54, which means you birdie every hole, that’s in the back of my mind. I want to putt better, chip better. That day when I hit 18 greens and one putt, I’ll know I’m a complete golfer. Will that ever happen? I’m not sure, but it’s possible. The 54 vision is always in the back of my mind.”

                    And, really... that episode was about... nothing.

                      Dude, this was one of the funniest shows on tv last spring. They made a passing reference to dg last season. Funny stuff...if you're into that kind of humor...the funy kind.
