European Open 2017 Quick Links
It’s already time for the 3rd stop of the Disc Golf World Tour 2017 season here at Nokia, Finland! The course looks stunning as always and we are ready to witness the best players in the world battle out the sole European PDGA of the year over 4 rounds from Thursday to Sunday. In this article we’ve gathered links and information on how to follow the event online.
Naturally the best way to follow the action is to come see it for yourself. If, however, you’re unable to make the trip to the beautiful Nokia DiscGolfPark, much deservedly coined “The Beast”, there’s plenty of ways you can follow the event online.
Live Scoring & Metrix
We will be providing live scoring from each tournament round for both the DGWT Open and FPO divisions. The scores of each group will be posted online after holes 3, 8, 11, 15 and 18. In addition to traditional scoring, we’re also collecting Disc Golf Metrix data for the DGWT Open Division players from all rounds. As a new feature for the 2017 season, all Metrix data is now available without registration to the DGWT website. Make sure not to miss the play-by-play instagram videos on the live scoring page – just click the tiny camera icons in the hole-by-hole view to watch!
The scores and Metrix data of the FPO field will not be found on the DGWT live scoring page, but can be conveniently found from DiscGolfMetrix.
The round results and preliminary ratings for both DGWT Open and Female Pro Open divisions can also be found at pdga.com after the rounds.
Please note: The scoring page will be updated with round 1 groups before the round starts.
The SpinTV in cooperation with Jomez Productions will be producing DGWT Open division lead card Play-by-Play videos from all tournament rounds. In addition to this, the first round feature card action will be captured on film, as well as DGWT Open division chase card rounds 3 and 4 and the FPO division’s final round.
Disclaimer: The video plan is tentative and is subject to change.
We will have our staff on the field doing active social media posting throughout the tournament week. Our main social media channels are Facebook and Instagram, so make sure to give us a follow! Since there will be no actual live broadcast available from the event, we’ll make sure to give the social media audience an extensive coverage of happenings on the field in the form of photos and videos. Just like at our past events, many of these videos will also be integrated to the live scoring page, so you can see how some of the players wound up to their scores on select holes, almost in real time!
The official hashtags for the 2017 European Open are #DGWT, #EO2017, #OpenDiscGolf, #EuropeanOpen and #DiscGolf. We encourage all players and followers to use these hashtags in their social media posts about the event.
DGWT Live Reports on Facebook
We’re happy to have our field reporter extraordinaire & disc golf world champion Avery Jenkins joining our media team at the European Open. Avery will be covering the event through a series of facebook live broadcasts daily. There is no specific schedule for the live broadcasts, but we aim to cover at least a little bit of tournament play by the DGWT Open division feature/lead card each day, as well as bringing you live interviews from hot players after each round. Make sure to follow us on facebook to catch us live throughout the tournament week!
Our media team will once again bring you media rich wrap up articles after each round for you to recap to the action from. You’ll find round recaps after each tournament round, as well as emerging stories as they appear. We also recommend following PDGA.com and UltiWorld for top notch online coverage of the Disc Golf World Tour.
We’re proud to have the highly talented Mr. Eino Ansio working behind the lens to capture the event. Make sure to check out the photo galleries after each tournament day at discgolfworldtour.com/photos
