With a strong focus on helping external media sources in the Charlotte area and beyond we’ve seen a new growth of coverage from outside the disc golf community. The Charlotte Observer, which has the largest circulation in Charlotte and all of South Carolina, and it’s partner Rock Hill Herald have been covering the tournament since the opening round.
Rock Hill TV station CN2 has been on site and has included the USDGC in their nightly sportscast. They, along with YC Magazine, have been regulars in recent years and we’re glad to have them on board again in 2015.
South Carolina Living is also at Winthrop Gold writing a feature article on Ricky Wysocki as he competes for his first USDGC title. Even the Santa Cruz Sentinel included the USDGC as the lead story in their sports roundup Friday night.
We are very thankful for all the media in attendance or covering the event from afar. Don’t miss the exciting final round of the 2015 USDGC.
