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-

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!

05 - Wess Cupp | 04 - Mack McLain | 03 - Scott Dawley | 02 - Allan Phillips | 01 - Rob Hogan

We also breakdown the top 3 on the women's list:

03 - Catherine Marsot | 02 - Lauren Cupp | 01 - Gretchen Johnson

Feb 17, 2016

Welcome to Episode 8. Today we’re talking with Jaacob Bowden. It was actually hard to nail down an appropriate title for exactly what it is he does. Let’s just say, in the world of golf, he’s pretty much done it all. Jaacob is someone who understands the value of writing down his goals and plans, and then pursuing them step by step until achieved.

Take for example, his goal of becoming a professional golfer. You’d probably guess this was his childhood dream, something he fantasized about since he was a kid. Not exactly. Jaacob was 27 when he got started on this dream. And he was by no means a scratch golfer either. A 14 handicap, someone who admired the single digit player in his foursome. He was quite literally the average golfer. An average golfer with a superhuman belief system and a powerhouse work ethic.

His story blossoms from there into a beautiful picture of a late bloomer who falls in love with golf, and turns his love of the game into a budding entrepreneurial career. He’s an out of the box thinker, a swing speed teacher, an accomplished Speedgolfer, a senior writer for GolfWRX.com, and finally, with the recent release of Sterling Irons, a golf club innovator. Alright, I’ve said enough. Let’s catch up with Professional Golf Entrepreneur, (hopefully that sums it up), Jaacob Bowden.

I hope you enjoy our conversation with Jaacob Bowden. Definitely want to encourage you to check out his swing speed training program. Like he mentioned, most golfers have never done any swing speed training, and therefore can see massive gains in just a few weeks time. For his unique view on current topics and events in the world of golf, follow him on your social media platforms of choice: he’s on facebook, twitter, instagram, and youtube.

What separates the best in the world from the runner-ups? “I don’t know,” is not a phrase you expect to hear often from someone who has made it to the top of their sport, or their academic field, or their chosen profession. Whatever the case, whether passion or Providence, we expect world champions and world-class performers, once crowned, to have the answer to that question and all the others we have related to it.

Maybe that fact betrays our deeply flawed beliefs about optimal performance: that being the best at something must require the attainment of perfection.

The story of 2-time Speedgolf World Champion Rob Hogan is one sprinkled with imperfections, failures, and knowledge gaps. And Rob is more than willing to talk about the struggles and obstacles that have defined his golfing career. There is a lot Rob will admit he doesn’t know or have an opinion about. But it quickly becomes apparent that it is precisely this state of not knowing, this yielding of control, that both fascinates and drives Hogan towards the limits of what most people believe is possible in the world of golf: the coveted Speedgolf score score of 99. The equivalent of the 4 minute mile in track and field, or the elusive score of 59 in golf.

Since 2013, Hogan has either won or finished 2nd in every Speedgolf event he’s played in. And he keeps getting better every year. He is the reigning, two-time Speedgolf World Champion, the reigning British Speedgolf Champion, 2-time Eastern Speedgolf Open Champion, and has multiple 18 hole championship Speedgolf rounds under 40 minutes.

How Rob Hogan from the little town of Bray, Ireland becomes Speedgolf Rob, the fastest golfer in the world, is a story as much about passion as it is Providence. It’s the story of a young man who emerges from the difficult plot twists in life without losing grasp of the awe and boundless potential he had going in. Ultimately, it’s a story about courageously yet light-heartedly entrusting our dreams, and the results of our efforts, to the mysterious and unknowable forces that shape and forge our destiny.

Have you played Speedgolf yet? If not, take Rob's advice, take our advice, and go give it a try. The chances are overwhelming that you’ll really enjoy it, and that it will have a positive impact on your game. Who knows, maybe there’s a breakthrough waiting for you out there?

Rob mentioned he’s on his way to New Zealand, in fact, he’s already there as of the release of this episode to participate in the New Zealand Speedgolf Open 23 Jan - 24 Jan 2016. Be sure to follow him on Facebook and Twitter, as he sets his sights on capturing another national championship.

Here's the deal. The concept of Speedgolf is not as foreign as you may first believe. If you're a golfer, chances are you've played Speedgolf. Most of us have teed off late in the evening in a race against the setting sun, charging ahead for a quick 9 before the daylight fades. Those rounds are some of the most memorable, aren't they? That's the essence of Speedgolf. Though it may be less common these days, if you’ve played quickly through the group ahead waving you through, you’ve played Speedgolf. And let's be honest, we all feel good when our pace of play leads to playing through the group in front of us. 

Thanks for tuning in to The Pace Of Change Golf Podcast, where we’re broadcasting the evolution of Golf in the 21st Century. Last week we spoke with Human Performance Specialist Allan Phillips, a man with sufficient accolades and credentials to warrant our best attention when it comes to strength and conditioning, peak performance training, and all around athletic fitness.

This week, as promised, we are leaving all pretense behind, and getting down to business! It’s no secret Speedgolf is a shared passion, and for the next hour we dive deep into this sleeping giant of a sport, it’s training applications as it relates to traditional golf, what Speedgolf needs to reach the masses, the creation of a sport specific set of rules, and the development of a variety of alternative formats within the sport of Speedgolf itself, such as the Speedgolf 100 yard dash.

If you don’t know anything about Speedgolf, this episode is for you. If you’re busy blazing a Speedgolf trail wherever you are in the world, this episode is for you.

Welcome back to Part II of The Pioneer Life with AFGL Founders Laura and Roberto Balestrini. Last week we focused on the history of Footgolf leading up to Roberto’s auspicious discovery of this new and exciting hybrid sport while surfing the TV in 2011. Roberto seized the window of opportunity and jumped head first into his role as pioneer of Footgolf in the US. It hasn’t always been an easy road, and certainly the idea of giving up crossed Roberto’s mind more than once. But with his wife Laura by his side, Roberto focused on taking maximum advantage of the opportunities that presented themselves, and trusted the attraction to the sport would inevitably draw mass appeal.

Starting with 4 courses in 2012, Roberto tirelessly promoted the benefits of bringing Footgolf to golf course operations, and built strong relationships with course owners and operators as he invested every last penny traveling across the US introducing golf courses to Footgolf. As of the time of this interview in December of 2015, the AFGL has over 450 Affiliate courses in 49 States.

This week we face the future of Footgolf, from the upcoming World Cup in Argentina, to Footgolf Rules and Regulations, to some really exciting news about Footgolf and the AFGL in the upcoming year.

In this week’s episode, Dude and Scott are treated to a lengthy conversation with the Pioneer of Footgolf in the USA, the Founder of the American Footgolf League, the Godfather of Footgolf as he has been dubbed because of his passion, his magnanimous spirit, and his influence on the growth of this new hybrid sport, Roberto Balestrini. We asked Roberto for one hour of his time, knowing he’s a busy man. To our absolute delight, we spent almost 3 hours talking to him about all things Footgolf, what the pioneer life is like, the challenges and rewards of spearheading an entirely new sport in the United States and Internationally, and we even had the good fortune of his wife, Laura Balestrini, joining us mid way through the interview. Well, there was just too much good here for one 30 minute episode...so we’ve decided to bring you part 1 today, and part 2 next week.

This week we focus on the history of Footgolf leading up to Roberto’s auspicious discovery of this new and exciting hybrid sport while surfing the TV in 2011.

The podcast kicks off with Dude Spellings interviewing Scott Dawley about his experience at the 2015 Speedgolf World Championships. The 4th annual World Championship changed venues for the first time in 2015, and while leaving Bandon Dunes was a bitter pill to swallow, the Fazio designed venue in Chicago (The Glen Club) proved to be as picturesque and perhaps more challenging than Bandon.

Dawley's goal was a win this year, so he enrolled the help of a running coach and set up a 100 day training plan. In the midst of launching LinksRun, he spent 26 days of every month hammering away at his physical endurance, and honing his golf game, especially his putting. That translated to 100+ miles of running and 40+ hours of putting, short game, and full swing practice per month. There were lots of highs for Scott, like winning his first 10k trail race, and plenty of lows, like overtraining and physical exhaustion. Nevertheless, Dawley entered the 36-hole championship more prepared and full of confidence than ever before.

The weather on day 1 was reminiscent of last year's championship, with cool temps and wind gusts up to 40 mph. Employing a new piece of equipment, The Silo, Scott finished the first round with a 78 in 51 minutes, putting him in a familiar position at the world championships: 5th place, and 4 strokes behind the leader. Day 2 conditions were mild in comparison, and Scott knew this was his chance to mount a comeback. After a birdie on the 1st hole, and another on the 4th, he knew the day was going to be special. Scott finished the round with a world championship record-tying score of even par 72, in 48 minutes, and jumped 3 spots into 2nd place. His final round consisted of 6 birdies, and 1 eagle (a hole out from the fairway on a par 4), along with 2 bogeys and 3 double bogeys.
