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-

As a multisport pioneer and media mogul, and someone who popularized Speedgolf in the 90’s, Bob Babbitt is somebody I'm trying to become like. So if you’ve listened to previous podcasts, this episode will feel a bit different in nature. First of all, Bob called me from his radio station, so even though I was technically doing the interview, it sounds like he’s the host and I’m the guest on the line.

I usually try to keep the listener in mind during a podcast, and a list of relevant questions to ask, but with Bob, all that went out the window. It quickly became a personal phone call, a mentoring session in a way, that we forgot we were recording. From someone who’s already done it, to someone who wants to do it, this episode contains a blueprint for growing golf in the 21st century by doing what he said in the intro: changing perceptions. Namely, Golf is a fitness sport.

Golf suffered a setback on Sunday with the rules decision by the USGA to penalize Dustin Johnson one stroke when his ball inadvertently moved as he prepared to putt. It was a decision that has been unanimously unpopular by Dustin’s fellow PGA Tour players, and golf fans all over the world.  


We’ll break that down today, but more importantly, we want to take this opportunity to move beyond the negative talk, and use this situation as a way to encourage all golfers everywhere that golf is a sport like many others that can be played in a variety of forms and formats. Like any other game, as long as the players can agree on a set of rules, those rules DO NOT have to align perfectly with the sports competitive governing body, ie the USGA or R&A.

 

Topics Include:

US Open

PGA Tour

USGA

Dustin Johnson

Jason Day

Steve Lowry

Brad Faxon

Fox Sports

We all 'know' Golf is 90% mental. Nobody questions that cliche.... But is it, really? A sports psychologist will argue that all day long, but if you ask a child, or a beginner, do you think they would agree?

That’s not what I remember Golf being like when I was growing up. I sucked at golf, my swing was long, way across the line at the top, but I didn’t know it, and honestly I didn’t really care. I just couldn’t wait for the next swing when I made perfect contact, and felt that indescribable feeling we’ve all experienced.

So, is it possible the heart of the game has been sacrificed at the altar of the mind. The mystery of performance at the altar of science?

Steve didn’t know why he loved Speedgolf after finishing his first round, sweating, heart beating a mile a minute, out of breath...useless even. I’ll tell you why. Steve was playing from the heart, and golf is a sport that is meant to be played from the heart. Just like life is meant to be lived from the heart.

It’s why I play Speedgolf, it’s the main reason we started this podcast. It’s not about success, or metrics, or money. It’s about love. And love is not 90% mental, it’s all heart.

In the next 5 to 10 years the game of golf is going to undergo some major transformations. In fact, it’s already happening, and every week we’re bringing you guests like Brad Powers, who you just heard. Like most of us, Brad has had enough. But instead of complain about the state of the game, Brad founded a startup venture called Hozl.com, a remote golf lesson platform that makes swing instruction easy, time efficient, and most importantly, affordable. But that’s just step 1 of Brad’s master plan to speed up play, lower the financial barriers to entry, and make Golf more fun and exciting in the process.
