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-

Welcome back to The Pace Of Change Golf Podcast. Over the last couple of years we have seen a vast increase in the amount of Speedgolf content available on social media and the web.

When we started the POC that wasn't the case, so we focused on 21st century innovation in the game of golf and sought to interview the game changers in and around the industry. 

Now that Speedgolf has gained significant traction, we're excited for the opportunity to shift our focus primarily to the emerging sport of Speedgolf, something we are not only passionate about covering, but also actively growing.  

Today we're talking with Jamie Young, the reigning 2016 Speedgolf World Champion. On April 22nd, 7 of the top 15 world ranked players, along with a handful of courageous amateurs took on Cascata Golf Course outside of Las Vegas in the inaugural Vegas Extreme Speedgolf Challenge presented by Audi Henderson. 

The course played 6,200 yards from the tees, but covered nearly 7 miles in length on foot. That translates to an additional 5,000 yards of running between holes. In addition, we played at an elevation of 2,500 feet above sea level, and endured a triple digit elevation gain - almost 1,200 feet of UP from the 1st tee to the 18th green. 

Needless to say it was the most grueling Speedgolf event to date, yet every single competitor finished their round! 

World Ranked #1, Mack McLain took home his 3rd consecutive tournament win with an impressive run of 65 minutes, and 87 strokes.

But the real story revolves around the play of Jamie Young, who shot an mind-blowing 1 over par 73 in 84 minutes. By comparison, the next closest golf score was 81, and behind that were three 87's. 

Jamie's round will go down as one of the best Speedgolf appearances in the modern history (circa 2012) of our sport. Enjoy!
