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.
