    Speedgolf Southern California Founder Garlin Smith - Part II


    For this historic episode we brought in one of the great ambassadors of Speedgolf since he discovered it in 2013.


    As a successful brand marketing and advertising executive, Garlin Smith knows what it will take for Speedgolf to reach the masses. It's what he's doing with that knowledge that runs counter to many people's ideas about how this slow-to-develop, faster version of the traditional game will reach its tipping point.


    Enjoy Part II with the Founder and Director of Speedgolf Southern California. Next up, Part I.

    Luke Willett the Iron Golfer - Part II


    "The secret trick for me is...just believe, man. Just believe in yourself. You don't need to say, "I'm gonna do this," over and over again. Simply trust in the journey. And once you set off on your journey, don't think how you're gonna make it. Don't keep looking at the fuel gauge. Just keep going until it runs out, and see what happens." - Luke Willett


    Topics Include:

    Willett's 'secret' to success

    The Iron Golfer's Training regimen

    Luke Willett the Iron Golfer - Part I


    "People are so quick these days to ask ‘how’ or ‘why’. A better question is ‘why not’? You can figure out the details along the way. It sounds crazy. I get that. All of this sounds crazy. But try it. You might just like what you discover.” - Luke Willett, the Iron Golfer

    World Ranked Speedgolfer, PGA Member Garrett Holt


    For Garrett Holt, a PGA Head Pro in Springfield, Missouri – Speedgolf makes perfect sense. When he first came across the young sport in the winter of 2014, not only did he find it personally appealing (Holt's a competitor in both golf and running), but he also understood the benefits Speedgolf possessed for the open-minded golf course owner/operator.


    Garrett carries a quiet passion for Speedgolf and for life in general. He's been a tremendous addition to the Speedgolf community, growing participation in his local market, hosting multiple Tour events throughout the year, and playing his way onto the SGPR, where he currently sits at #20 in the World. Enjoy!

    Pioneering Time-Priced Green Fees with Matt Tausig


    In 2017, today's POC guest held a Guinness World Record in each hand. The first was Fastest 10k on crutches, a peculiar record he still holds today. You could say that one was by accident, but Brad Luiten's second record was for something he feels belongs to him, and him alone: Most Holes Played On Foot In 12 Hours.


    The problem is, it's a popular Speedgolf record. And it continues to be broken year after year. Speedgoat Karl Meltzer played 231 holes in 2016, Brad Luiten 237 in 2017, and last year former Oakland A's outfielder Eric Byrnes pushed the 12 hour envelope over 240....to 245 holes.


    In part 1, Brad breaks down his training regimen and highlights his most fascinating record attempts. Enjoy and stay tuned for Part II at a later date.

    Today we have some exciting announcements to make on the podcast. The first is our decision to relaunch the POC in 2019 as the world's first weekly podcast devoted exclusively to the sport of Speedgolf! This represents one small step for the POC, and one giant leap for the sport of Speedgolf.

    2018 Speedgolf World Champion Mikko Rantanen - Part I


    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!"

    How do they do it? Where do these ‘old guys’ focus their improvement efforts? Well, there isn’t one way when you’re talking about a biathlon sport. Let’s get into it. Dude, Chris, thanks for hosting, Larry, Brian, thanks for coming on. [Part II below.]

    Vegas Extreme Speedgolf Challenge Recap w/ Jamie Young


    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!

    2017 Washington State SpeedGolf Champion Steve Vancil


    When we started the podcast in 2015 we made a bold prediction about the revolutionary transformation the game of golf was going to undergo in the next decade. Well, it's clear to see the train has officially left the station, and there's no stopping golf's advance into the 21st Century. And that means we can't stop here at the Pace Of Change Golf Podcast! More to come on the POC, but for now...


    We had Steve Vancil on the phone with Allan Phillips and Chris Hundausen to talk about his recent win at the inaugural Washington State Speedgolf Championships. Steve took down the reigning world champ Jamie Young, a former world champion in Eri Crum, the #1 world-ranked Speedgolfer in Wes Cupp , and an otherwise very strong field to earn his maiden victory in the modern speedgolf era.

    Pam Painter British Speedgolf Founder


    "Great golf is at the heart of speedgolf. And I think that’s what makes it such an interesting, new cross-discipline sport." - Pam Painter


    Speedgolf is:

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.

    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.
