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-

In the 2008 Beijing Olympics, running with an undiagnosed hip and knee injury, Nick Willis emerged from the pack down the home stretch of the 1500m finals, passed three runners, and earned a Silver Medal for his valiant effort. A few months later, after a well-deserved break from running, Nick discovered Speedgolf as a way to ease back into his training regimen, and he fell in love with the sport after an exceptional round of 79 in 44 minutes his first time out.

What you’re gonna find out about Nick Willis in the next hour is that he’s not just committed to being an exceptional athlete, at the expense of other areas of his life, like being a husband and father. On the contrary, Nick is committed to a much higher calling, that of being an exceptional human being. What we watch him accomplish on television is just the outpouring of a lifestyle he employs behind the scenes on a daily basis. It’s a lifestyle that emphasizes self-awareness, balance, gratitude, appreciation, trust, and support. For him, maximum energy is derived from a clean and balanced body, and maximum output is the result of a pure and clean conscience. Whether you’re a golfer, or a runner, we all stand to learn a lot from this Olympian who’s been through the ups and downs of sport and life, and has managed to find meaning in every moment, and has continued to ask the most of himself every single day. It was a real honor to have Nick on the podcast, so I hope you enjoy it.

To get you up to speed, Nick actually finished in a close second at the Wannamaker Mile this weekend, running a 3:51 and narrowly missing the win by less than a half second. It was riveting to watch, we’ve posted the video in the show notes (below). Show Nick your support by liking his athlete page on facebook, again that’s facebook.com/willisrunning. He’s definitely in the mix for a medal in the 1500m at the Olympic games this August in Rio.

LINKSRUN

This episode of the Pace of Change Golf Podcast is sponsored in part by LinksRun. Can you guess what Runner’s World rated as the #1 surface to run on? That’s right, golf course fairways. The same fairways that are off limits to runners. There were a record 18,000 timed foot races in the United States last year, and almost all of them were on roads. I wonder how many ran past golf courses and wished they could be on the other side of the fence? Well, LinksRun is making that a reality.

LinksRun is an innovative racing concept whose founders are passionate about running, and growing the game of golf in the 21st Century. Their vision is to build a bridge between two of the largest athletic communities in the world: golfers and runners, by hosting foot races on golf courses.

Welcome to Episode 8. Today we’re talking with Jaacob Bowden. It was actually hard to nail down an appropriate title for exactly what it is he does. Let’s just say, in the world of golf, he’s pretty much done it all. Jaacob is someone who understands the value of writing down his goals and plans, and then pursuing them step by step until achieved.

Take for example, his goal of becoming a professional golfer. You’d probably guess this was his childhood dream, something he fantasized about since he was a kid. Not exactly. Jaacob was 27 when he got started on this dream. And he was by no means a scratch golfer either. A 14 handicap, someone who admired the single digit player in his foursome. He was quite literally the average golfer. An average golfer with a superhuman belief system and a powerhouse work ethic.

His story blossoms from there into a beautiful picture of a late bloomer who falls in love with golf, and turns his love of the game into a budding entrepreneurial career. He’s an out of the box thinker, a swing speed teacher, an accomplished Speedgolfer, a senior writer for GolfWRX.com, and finally, with the recent release of Sterling Irons, a golf club innovator. Alright, I’ve said enough. Let’s catch up with Professional Golf Entrepreneur, (hopefully that sums it up), Jaacob Bowden.

I hope you enjoy our conversation with Jaacob Bowden. Definitely want to encourage you to check out his swing speed training program. Like he mentioned, most golfers have never done any swing speed training, and therefore can see massive gains in just a few weeks time. For his unique view on current topics and events in the world of golf, follow him on your social media platforms of choice: he’s on facebook, twitter, instagram, and youtube.
