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-

Host Allan Phillips joins top ranked Speedgolfer Mack McLain to recap his maiden victory on the modern Speedgolf tour at the New York Speedgolf Open. Speed is undoubtedly the name of Mack's game, which makes him hard to beat when his short game is on the money. As for the upcoming US National Champs in December, let's just say Mack isn't leaving anything to chance. 

Topics:

NYSGO Round Recap

What's In The Bag

Training Regimen

Speedgolf philosophy and strategy

USSGO preparations

2017 Washington State Speedgolf Champion Steve Vancil

It has been a few months since our last podcast episode. Longer than we'd planned – but not because we were being lazy, so get excited because we're back!

When we started the podcast in 2015 we made a bold prediction about the revolutionary transformation the game of golf was going to undergo in the next decade. Well, it's clear to see the train has officially left the station, and there's no stopping golf's advance into the 21st Century. And that means we can't stop here at the Pace Of Change Golf Podcast! More to come on the POC, but for now...

We had Steve Vancil on the phone with Allan Phillips and Chris Hundausen to talk about his recent win at the inaugural Washington State Speedgolf Championships. Steve took down the reigning world champ Jamie Young, a former world champion in Eri Crum, the #1 world-ranked Speedgolfer in Wes Cupp , and an otherwise very strong field to earn his maiden victory in the modern speedgolf era.

So the question for today is: Who is Steve Vancil?

Topics Discussed:

Golfing and Running history

Speedgolf history

What's In The Bag

How Steve trains for Speedgolf

WSSG Championship round recap

Today's guest is impossible to pin down in one or two descriptive words. Dynamic is close enough.

Hailing from Iceland, he's a former semi-pro soccer player, a former contestant on the Golf Channel reality competition series Altered Course, an international entrepreneur creating innovative 360 wins in the telecom industry, the founder of Speedgolf Iceland. And – oh yeah, he lives on an old Dutch military ship. Enjoy Part I. Stay tuned for Part II.

"Great golf is at the heart of speedgolf. And I think that’s what makes it such an interesting, new cross-discipline sport." - Pam Painter

Speedgolf is:

1) Great for fitness.

2) A sport that has its roots in fun

3) Invigorating, you get a thrill from doing it

4) Lends itself to our time-poor 21st century lifestyle

"I think really the involvement has come from a grown passion about the sport. I’m absolutely passionate to see that Speedgolf succeeds. So really you’re looking to use any vehicles you can to spread the word, and to get Speedgolf out there to as many people as possible." - Pam Painter

"Whether you want to play competitively, or just get out there, there’s something in Speedgolf for everybody." - Pam Painter

There are a few key milestones and innovations that must occur before Speedgolf can truly reach the masses. None are as important as what we are about to announce in this episode.

It's time to let the (app) out of the bag!
 
That's right. the POC is excited to announce plans for the development of a 1st generation Speedgolf Tournament Scoring System & Personal Tracking App. Talk about a game changer!
 
In this episode, Chris Hundhausen, Allan Phillips, and host Scott Dawley break the announcement, and give listeners just enough scoop to send their minds racing with ideas. We can't wait to hear all of them!

Today we welcome back our first returning guest to the podcast. Episode 009 guest, and now 2-time Olympic Medalist, Nick Willis is back with us on the POC. 

Nick had just returned stateside after the long trek from New Zealand back to Michigan, so we appreciate him taking the time to recap last weekend's tournament.

Beyond the event, we ask Nick his opinion on why NZ Golf has been so successful at growing participation in Speedgolf, and discuss other ways we can get more people involved in the sport. 

We also ask Nick about a new training program he has launched with his wife Sierra since returning from Rio. It's called MilerMethod.com. It's a one month training program to help you run your fastest mile ever. New sesssions starting soon. Check it out at MilerMethod.com

“Andy was a world beater during his junior and college golf days,” Walker told PGATour.com. “(Lucas) Glover, (Charles) Warren and (Jonathan) Byrd, all these guys playing on Tour, were the names I heard growing up, and Andy Sanders was right up there with them.” 

Really special guest on today. I played college golf with Andy at University of Houston. We were roommates actually. He introduced me to my wife back in 2000. He was a groomsmen at our wedding in 2003. Andy was also the #1 player on our team, and was blazing a path to the PGA Tour, when a series crazy events forever changed his life.

We see each other once a year now, each time he and Jimmy Walker roll through town for the Shell Houston Open. This year, if they play the SHO, they will do it with Jimmy as reigning PGA champion, which is also how they will enter the next week at Augusta for the first major since Baltusrol back in late July: The Masters.    

Topics Include:

-Andy's Story -> http://bit.ly/2ko6V8v & http://bit.ly/2knXWEr

- Butch Harmon & yearly goals for his stable of Tour players

- The Masters

- Tiger Woods 

- PGA Championship

- PGA Tour Shot Tracker 

- The double edged sword of statistics

- The importance of a good team

- Winning the '16 PGA Championship

- Playing Speedgolf at Tiger's event in the Bahamas

Matt Tausig has been getting a lot of attention from the golf media in the last few weeks. He’s a seasoned pga professional, and the DOG at a resort in Missouri. What his courses have begun offering is being described as diabolical and devious, if not genius, by national golf publications.

So, what’s the deal with pay by the hour rates? I’m glad I reached out to Matt, and I think he is too. This is his chance to tell the whole story behind time-based green fees, a story that can’t be fully told or understood in a 300 word article. So, let’s get right into it.

Welcome back to the POC! As usual, we are broadcasting the evolution of Golf in the 21st century. In order to accomplish our mission, we profile and interview the pioneers, entrepreneurs, innovators, yes the game changers in and around the golf industry.

We've talked about FootGolf with the founders of the AFGL, interviewed the creator of FlingGolf, and covered the Speedgolf World Championships. Entrepreneurs, tech innovators, human performance experts, and world class athletes have been on the show. To sum it up, we turn on the mic and let the future of Golf come out.    

When you really get down to it, how and when the game practically evolves hinges one very important group of gatekeepers. It's their collective worldview and mindset that ultimately determines the world's view and mindset of what can happen when you spend time (and money) at a golf facility. Our guest today once surveyed 500 golfers, asking them to provide one word descriptions of Golf. One person out of five hundred, 1/500, wrote FUN. 

Hopefully the POC has revealed there is no shortage of new and exciting alternatives, or cutting edge technologies, or game changing products and services tailored to meet the demands of the busy, modern day lifestyle. The possibilities are endless!

But in the end, the buck stops with the golf course owners and operators. They are the real industry 'sharks' that decides to adopt or dismiss, to invite or decline. They are in control of the pace of change!

Recently I've been getting more and more messages, emails, and phone calls from golf course operators ready to begin offering strategic blocks of time on the tee sheet to attract 'faster' golfers. Josh Heptig, manager of 3 golf courses in San Luis Obispo, CA, contacted the POC after hearing about Speedgolf USA on Babbittville radio.   

Side note - I fondly remember a time (ha ha - like a year ago) when I would call a golf course and have to explain that playing fast has actually become 'a thing', a real sport called Speedgolf. To be fair, every GM and golf professional I've talked to has responded with openness and curiosity, even if Speedgolf wasn't a feasible option because of capacity issues, pricing, prohibitive terrain, or some other reasonable restraint. Not one has rejected it outright. 

This podcast is a little different than others. I decided to record my return phone call with Josh, with his permission of course, and give listeners the chance to hear an unscripted conversation with a forward thinking course operator. The audio quality is diminished, but I'm hoping the quality of our organic conversation more than makes up for it.

Josh and I have a request for you. If you liked what you heard, share this episode with the operators of the golf courses where you play. Thank you in advance, and here's to faster golf in 2017!
