2006 Marshall Street
Disc Golf Championship DVD

Posted 05-09-07

With their newest release, the 2006 MSDGC DVD, Marshall Street shows once again why their videos rank amongst the best disc golf videos ever made. This year's release, which is a 2-disk set, treats viewers with an incredible level of fast-paced disc golf action from some of the game's top pros. The footage focuses on the top cards from the open men and women and still includes many of your favorite extras from their previous releases such as the skins event, bloopers, big putts, heartbreakers.

A nice change with the 2006 DVD is the presentation of the men's open division. Departing from the standard play by play per card format, the 2006 DVD focuses much more on the individual players with brief bios and highlights of the top 20 pros as well as a few others. The first three rounds are displayed in a similar fashion, showing footage of each player from the top card (as well as several from lower cards that are making pushes) in segments spanning several holes. I personally like this change as it improves the flow of the video (it feels less like watching televised golf) and it gives viewers a great opportunity to key in on a specific player's form, making this video a great educational tool. The final round coverage returns to more of a standard presentation format with the action focusing on the players in contention to win and builds up to a "shootout" type feel between the players on the top card. The open women are displayed in more of a standard format similar to their previous videos.

From a production standpoint, the 2006 DVD does a great job of showing the entirety of a player's throwing form and the disc's flight without too many jump cuts that tend to detach the watcher from the actual throw. The video quality falls somewhere between the 2004 and 2005 MSDGC DVD's in quality (with the 2005 being the best) but maintains itself as a very real and down to earth representation of disc golf. The audio quality on the commentary on the 2006 DVD is a definite step up from year's past and is again loaded with humorous and candid remarks during the play by play.

I can say that the 2006 MSDGC DVD is a definite "must have" for the hardcore disc golfer and ranks amongst the top disc golf videos available.
