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-

Mikko Rantanen, a former mini-tour professional, started playing Speedgolf in 2015. At first casually and then in October 2016 Rantanen took part in his first Speedgolf tournament: the 2016 Speedgolf World Championships in Chicago.

In 2017 - 2018 Mikko has organized a Speedgolf Tour in Finland (5 tournaments + National Championship) which has kept him playing competitively. 

"Speedgolf is a great way to improve my overall fitness level, allows me to play more golf because regular golf takes too long, and it also brings a new dimension & challenge to the game, which I really enjoy. I believe it has also helped to play better regular golf." - Mikko Rantanen 

During summertime Rantanen plays 2-3 rounds of Speedgolf each week, along with some interval running training as well as long distance training. Mikko even organized a Speedgolf triathlon and a Speedgolf marathon earlier this year, which were tough events and helped him get fit. 

If you want to improve your fitness level, play more golf and play better golf, Mikko says you should try Speedgolf.

His advice for first-timers? First you need to get out on the course and give it a try - early in the morning or late in the evening when there are no players in front. Take a pencil bag or junior bag with 6 clubs (for example driver or a 3 wood, irons 5, 7, 9 and sand wedge and a putter) and aim for 90 minutes by jogging from the tee to fairway and to the green, walk around the greens. Use running or trail running shoes rather that golf shoes.

"Keep you routines quick, but don't rush. Just look react & trust your instincts. You’ll be surprised by how well you can play. Enjoy the challenge!"
