When Dude Spellings and I set out to create The Pace Of Change Golf Podcast, we had a grand total of zero experience in media and podcasting. But we wanted to document and broadcast what we believed was a massive shift coming to the world of Golf. Regardless of the audience size, we committed to stick with it for 1 year. We have not been disappointed!
As we wrap up 2016, we are extremely proud to have produced over 60 hours of original content in 2016, (500+ hours of post-production), hosting some of the most innovative figures in the golf industry, and highlighting 21st century breakthroughs in alt golf movements, technology, and governing body reform. Our episodes have been downloaded thousands of times, and the growth of our audience continues to accelerate with each new episode.
Here are just a few of the topics we covered this year:
- The rise of FootGolf, with AFGL founders Laura and Roberto Balestrini
- Speedgolf World Champions Rob Hogan ('13,'15) and Jaime Young ('16)
- FlingGolf Founder Alex Van Alen
- 2-time Track & Field Olympic medalist Nick Willis
- Elite runners Brad Kearns, Kirstin Bull, and Mack McLain
- The Pace Of Change Speedgolf Power Rankings & World Championship Coverage
Innovators, Entrepreneurs, Industry Insiders

More Than A Podcast
Dude and I are grateful for all the success we've experienced in 2016. Beyond our weekly podcast, we instituted the first ever global Speedgolf Power Rankings, brought on 2 new content contributors, recently started the POC blog, and are hosting our own event in Austin, Tx on New Year's Eve: The Pace Of Play Challenge & Speedgolf Texas Pro-Am
We have some big plans for 2017, so stay tuned!
