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-

Our guest today, Rob O’Loughlin, has played a major role in revolutionizing the way we play golf. Not once, but twice, and as you’re about to discover, he’s not finished yet. So who is Rob O’Loughlin?

Well, you may have heard of the company he used to run, it’s called Softspikes. Yes, the makers of the plastic cleats that go on the bottom of nearly every golf shoe made for the last 20 years. He’s also the owner of laser link golf, the original makers of hand held laser range finders for golf. Much like our former guest, Bret Blakely of OnCoreGolf, Rob endured a 5 year battle with golf’s governing bodies to allow the use of range finders for amateur and recreational play. We'll get into his history, the ways he revolutionized the game, and then take a look into the future through his eyes.

As a special offer to our listeners, Rob is offering an amazing 25% off all products on his website. Just find what you're interested in, and enter “PACEOFCHANGE” (under Coupon Code) to get 25% off the listed price.

What's up golfer's everywhere! And runners if you're listening in. You just heard our special guest this week: non-golfer, cardiac education specialist by day, and elite ultra running champion by day and night, cause she runs so far, Kirstin Bull. Kirstin recently became the new Australian record holder in the 100km distance. She broke the previous record by running the equivalent of a 7:22 mile pace for...62 miles.

That's like running the better part of Long Island, or the LA coastline from Santa Monica to Newport Beach, or San Francisco to San Jose. And all she had to do was run about 1 second faster per mile than her predecessor. Another case where we find it's the little things done repeatedly over long distances or periods of time that separate the champion from the pack, or you from your next personal best result!  

There is no doubt elite ultra running champion Kirstin Bull is an inspiration to many in her sport, but I know what you may be thinking. This is a golf-themed podcast. Aren't we supposed to be discussing Golf? Where in the world does Golf fit into the runner's story? 

Here's the truth, golfers out there. Kirstin is a non-golfer...and it would probably stay that way permanently if it weren't for a unique style of play she recently discovered that actually complements the runner's lifestyle. It's called Speedgolf. Let's find out more about it. Are you ready? We do it fast, we make it fun, so turn it up and enjoy episode 20 with elite ultra running champion, Australian Kirstin Bull.

Virginia Deigan is the Founder of Speedgolf Australia. She's also a close friend and trusted colleague in our common mission to grow the sport of Speedgolf, and more broadly, to grow participation in the game of golf.

Golf, that is, as it is currently defined. But is that changing? We discuss Virginia's journey from beginner golfer in her 30's to Founder of Speedgolf Australia in 2013. But we also talk about the increasing necessity for golf course operators to open their property to non-traditional golf activities.

To that end she has forged a close relationship with Australia's preeminent Golf body, Golf Australia, and is already beginning to work with golf courses throughout the country to implement Speedgolf into their operation.

Always a pleasure to speak with Virginia, and a very special guest that we hope to also have on the podcast soon. Turn it up and enjoy episode 19 with the Founder of Speedgolf Australia, Virginia Deigan.

Get ready for today’s guest, Dave Shultz! Dave is the embodiment of a life permanently altered by asking questions like, “If I knew I couldn’t fail what would I do? Or this one, “If money were no object, what would I create or build?” And “How will I leave my mark on the world?” Sure, we have all answered those question for ourselves in our minds. But Dave Shultz, as you’re about to find out, KNOWS he can’t fail with his new golfing concept, RealiTee Golf.

Just 14 months into the process, this concept, this tech savvy, beginner friendly, business appropriate, multi-use indoor/outdoor hybrid golf facility is what he would build if money were no object.

What’s up golfers, everywhere? Welcome back to episode 17 of The Pace Of Change Golf Podcast where we are broadcasting the evolution of golf in the 21st century.  

This is a critical episode for us. Why? Because up until now we’ve been highlighting the 21st golf century entrepreneur. Those on the fringe, working tirelessly to bring their innovative ideas, services, and products into the mainstream. But what about the gatekeepers, those within the industry? We haven’t heard a ping response. We know what entrepreneurs want to bring to the game, but do we know how the leaders in the industry are responding?  

Well, now we do. This is the crossover episode. Not only is our guest today, Jay Karen, CEO of the NCGOA, hard at work on the ground, building strong relationships with and serving his 3,000+ owner operator members, his position earns him a seat at golf’s biggest, most influential tables. You can imagine who else is sitting around them. Most importantly, golfers, Jay is one of us.  Are you ready? We do it fast, we make it fun, turn it up and enjoy our conversation with NGCOA Chief Executive Officer - Jay Karen.
