The Pace Of Change Speedgolf Podcast: Broadcasting The Evolution of Speedgolf In The 21st Century

After attending the Speedgolf World Championships in 2015, Scott Dawley (@scottdawleygolf) and Dude Spellings (@dudespellings) decided it was time to start a podcast. The game of golf was already in the beginning stages of major transformation, and we wanted to document the revolutionary change as it was happening...in real time! In 2015-16 there just wasn't enough Speedgolf action to cover on a weekly podcast. So we spoke with forward thinking guests from around the world of golf about where they saw the game headed. Then, in 2017-18 we witnessed such a dramatic explosion in Speedgolf activity that most of our coverage began to revolve around developments in our sport. As we surpass our 100th episode, I'm proud of what we have been able to share with our listeners and fans. Our content is truly unique in the world of golf. The entire POC library of past episodes is available at PaceOfChange.com, and will always be free to download and enjoy. Starting in 2019, the POC will exclusively focus on the developing sport of Speedgolf! We will profile and interview the pioneers, innovators, entrepreneurs, athletes, and record breakers – the change agents in and around the game of Speedgolf. With the help of our guests, the POC will shed light on the ways in which Speedgolf is growing and evolving to keep pace with the demands of the modern world: Faster. Cheaper, More Fun! We invite you, the listener, to join us on this incredible journey the game of Speedgolf is on. Subscribe on your favorite podcast platform like Spotify or iTunes today and get notified when we release a new episode. Until then, pick up the pace, play from your heart. -Scott Dawley-

What separates the best in the world from the runner-ups? “I don’t know,” is not a phrase you expect to hear often from someone who has made it to the top of their sport, or their academic field, or their chosen profession. Whatever the case, whether passion or Providence, we expect world champions and world-class performers, once crowned, to have the answer to that question and all the others we have related to it.

Maybe that fact betrays our deeply flawed beliefs about optimal performance: that being the best at something must require the attainment of perfection.

The story of 2-time Speedgolf World Champion Rob Hogan is one sprinkled with imperfections, failures, and knowledge gaps. And Rob is more than willing to talk about the struggles and obstacles that have defined his golfing career. There is a lot Rob will admit he doesn’t know or have an opinion about. But it quickly becomes apparent that it is precisely this state of not knowing, this yielding of control, that both fascinates and drives Hogan towards the limits of what most people believe is possible in the world of golf: the coveted Speedgolf score score of 99. The equivalent of the 4 minute mile in track and field, or the elusive score of 59 in golf.

Since 2013, Hogan has either won or finished 2nd in every Speedgolf event he’s played in. And he keeps getting better every year. He is the reigning, two-time Speedgolf World Champion, the reigning British Speedgolf Champion, 2-time Eastern Speedgolf Open Champion, and has multiple 18 hole championship Speedgolf rounds under 40 minutes.

How Rob Hogan from the little town of Bray, Ireland becomes Speedgolf Rob, the fastest golfer in the world, is a story as much about passion as it is Providence. It’s the story of a young man who emerges from the difficult plot twists in life without losing grasp of the awe and boundless potential he had going in. Ultimately, it’s a story about courageously yet light-heartedly entrusting our dreams, and the results of our efforts, to the mysterious and unknowable forces that shape and forge our destiny.

Have you played Speedgolf yet? If not, take Rob's advice, take our advice, and go give it a try. The chances are overwhelming that you’ll really enjoy it, and that it will have a positive impact on your game. Who knows, maybe there’s a breakthrough waiting for you out there?

Rob mentioned he’s on his way to New Zealand, in fact, he’s already there as of the release of this episode to participate in the New Zealand Speedgolf Open 23 Jan - 24 Jan 2016. Be sure to follow him on Facebook and Twitter, as he sets his sights on capturing another national championship.

Here's the deal. The concept of Speedgolf is not as foreign as you may first believe. If you're a golfer, chances are you've played Speedgolf. Most of us have teed off late in the evening in a race against the setting sun, charging ahead for a quick 9 before the daylight fades. Those rounds are some of the most memorable, aren't they? That's the essence of Speedgolf. Though it may be less common these days, if you’ve played quickly through the group ahead waving you through, you’ve played Speedgolf. And let's be honest, we all feel good when our pace of play leads to playing through the group in front of us. 

Thanks for tuning in to The Pace Of Change Golf Podcast, where we’re broadcasting the evolution of Golf in the 21st Century. Last week we spoke with Human Performance Specialist Allan Phillips, a man with sufficient accolades and credentials to warrant our best attention when it comes to strength and conditioning, peak performance training, and all around athletic fitness.

This week, as promised, we are leaving all pretense behind, and getting down to business! It’s no secret Speedgolf is a shared passion, and for the next hour we dive deep into this sleeping giant of a sport, it’s training applications as it relates to traditional golf, what Speedgolf needs to reach the masses, the creation of a sport specific set of rules, and the development of a variety of alternative formats within the sport of Speedgolf itself, such as the Speedgolf 100 yard dash.

If you don’t know anything about Speedgolf, this episode is for you. If you’re busy blazing a Speedgolf trail wherever you are in the world, this episode is for you.

Hello golfers all over the world, and welcome to episode 5 of The Pace Of Change Golf Podcast. In this two-part interview we introduce you to Allan Phillips, Human Performance Specialist, Top World Ranked Speedgolfer, Titleist Performance Institute certified golf fitness instructor, and the list goes on and on and on:

-Certified Strength and Conditioning Specialist

-Co-owner of Pike Athletics

-USA Triathlon Level I Coach

-Level II Coach with the American Swimming Coaches Association.

-National Strength and Conditioning Association, Certified Strength and Conditioning Specialist (CSCS) and Tactical Strength and Conditioning Facilitator (TSAC-F)

Allan is a beast, and I’m not just referring to his prolific athletic abilities.

There’s some really good nuggets in here, and I think no matter where you are on the fitness spectrum this episode has something for you today. I hope you enjoy getting to know Allan Phillips and learning about where athletic training and performance currently stands, and where it’s headed in the future.
