Provincials is underway this weekend in Kelowna, and we’d like to wish everyone good golf and good luck. Although we’re not on-site this weekend, we are a major event sponsor with a noticeable on course presence.
Find our tee-sign and snap a picture with it to be entered into a draw! Post it to Twitter, Facebook or Instagram and tag us so we know it’s there.
We’d also like to give a special shout out to the Team Disc Cellar members competing this weekend: Wes Eccleston, Derek Wintermans and Jordan Moens.
When I really committed myself to disc golf in the fall of 2010, I was a sponge for disc related footage on YouTube. Unfortunately six years ago good coverage was hard to find. Since then there’s been an explosion of the sport on-line with what seems like unlimited tournaments, interviews and video clinics. My subscription bar always seems to have new videos every day. So I thought I’d share some of my favourite, frequently updated channels and break them down in to a few categories:
Major Tournament Coverage
- The Spin TV – Innova’s channel, tournaments, interviews, lifestyle
- Prodigy Disc – formerly McFlySoHigh, tournaments, team and disc info
- McFlySoHigh Video – very high quality coverage from many major past events, not updated since 2015
- The Disc Golf Guy – mix of tournament and blog updates, interviews
- SmashboxxTV – featuring The Disc Golf Guy: live tournament coverage, live tournament recap shows, regular Tuesday night live podcasts
- Jomez Productions – very high quality, Southern US focus
- Disc Golf Pro Tour – new this year, live coverage of some very big events
- Central Coast Disc Golf – best commentary in disc golf, focus on West Coast events, in the bag, “Ask Me Anything” with top pros, Champ vs Chumps
Regional Tournament Coverage
Touring Pro Channels
- Best Disc Golf Discs – Tutorials on the science behind disc flight, very easy to follow
- Trent Nicholl – Booom disc clothing, tournaments, promos
- Dude – Australian clothing company with many top pros
There are many other channels out there that are worth watching, please share your favourites and why in the comments.
My personal channel is djwinter77. I don’t post disc golf videos, but you can view who I follow to click their links for easy access.
Derek Wintermans is a member of Team Disc Cellar and made the trip to Amateur World’s in both 2014 & 2015 before turning Pro.
This announcement is long overdue, but we’d like to welcome Derek Wintermans (#53408) to Team Disc Cellar (he’s been a member for over a year)!
Derek has a long history of competing at a high level and we’re happy to be able to help support him as he applies that competitive spirit to Disc Golf. Check out Derek’s Bio for more of his history, and what’s in his bag.
We’ll have more sponsorship announcements in the next few weeks, and even though this one is old news you should congratulate him. We’re lucky to have him!
