Finding entertainment from the disc world on YouTube

It’s been a while since we’ve run a post full of YouTube videos.

Originally, the YouTube feature was supposed to be a regular thing on Rattling Chains. Though it hasn’t worked out that way, it’s nice to do some surfing on occasion to see what’s out there.

The turn of the year is usually a good time to check things out as many people seem to upload trick shots or compilations of aces and things like that as a year-end sort of thing.

These videos are always pretty entertaining.

While it’s true that most of these people probably take multiple shots to get the result, it’s still pretty impressive they get the shot done at all.

Either way, they are still entertaining.

So sit back, enjoy your day and hopefully you have the time to check out some of these videos as they are quite fun to watch!

Discmasters TV — looking at a disc golf’s first variety show

By Jack Trageser — Rattling Chains staff

Most of you who read Rattling Chains or the School of Disc Golf blog know I run School of Disc Golf as a side-gig, mainly because I thoroughly enjoy getting new players hooked on the game and helping those already addicted get better.

You’ve likely read, at some point, that I used to play in as many tournaments I could, topped out at a 999 player rating (so close!) and, for a time, was an officer of the DeLaveaga Disc Golf Club.

discmasters_logorevWhat I don’t think I’ve ever mentioned in this space before is another off-and-on project of mine — Discmasters TV. Since the first new episode in quite a while just hit YouTube, it made sense to take a little time to tell you about the show and its origins.

It started when I came across a YouTube video that covered a Santa Cruz tournament called the Faultline Classic. I thought the video was well-produced, given the obviously limited technical resources. I decided to approach the person who posted the video with an idea I had been tossing around for some time. The concept was for a lighter side of disc golf-type variety show, incorporating instruction, interviews and cheesy — and badly acted — comedy. It should be no surprise the last part came naturally.

Searching the Tube for DG

It has been a while since I went surfing YouTube for disc golf videos.

Though I enjoy the instruction videos in the hopes of getting better, I usually look for entertaining ones. So on this Friday, I give to you five videos I’ve recently discovered.

It’s possibly you’ve already seen them all. If so, I hope you enjoy them again.

“Disc golf”

This is pretty entertaining, right here. Using a human basket, a three-hole series of disc golf. Good times.

“Disc golf rap”

Good beat here. It might not be a Grammy-winning song, but it’s entertaining at least.
