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-

Dude Spelling and Scott Dawley sit down to discuss the recent 2 day gathering in St. Andrews to ponder the results of the R&A's Attitudes Towards Pace Of Play Global Survey conducted from the Fall of 2014 through the Spring of 2015. Leaders from all golf's major associations were present. Surprisingly, the survey findings cut sharply across last year's USGA Symposium on Pace Of Play, where results indicated Golf Course Management practices as the primary driver of slow play. The R&A survey, culled primarily from golf club members close to home in Great Britain and Ireland, indicated something quite different, namely, that reasons cited for slow play revolved around player education, performance, and personal golfing habits. 

Regardless of reason, the facts are that golf is losing relevancy in the 21st century as a realistic means of recreation, due to the time commitment required to participate. Work and family commitments, along with the cost of participation are listed across the board as the primary reasons for leaving the game and choosing alternative means of recreation.

New formats like Speedgolf inherently address each of these issues and efforts are underway to standardize Speedgolf play across the States and globally in the coming years.
