The Community of Disc Golfers and About All Things Disc Golf

Every now and then I substitute my thrice-weekly 3-5 mile run with a bit of speed golf. At Black Mouse DGC, a short but very mountainous track, it's a great workout. My habit there, if time allows, is to play the course twice and aim for a time of less than an hour. Today I finished the first round in 26:26, and the the entire 36 holes in 53:05. If my math is correct, that means that the second 18 holes took 13 seconds longer than the first 18. I thought that was kinda cool, that the time it took to finish each round of 18 was so similar.

Reflecting on this bit of arcane information got me to thinking, though, about the relationship in speed golf between speed of play and score. Although it seems like a person could go faster if they were not concerned with score,

I would love to hold a speed golf tournament at De La or Morley. Participants start at 1 minute intervals and etiquette is almost completely disregarded (slower players yield to faster players and that's about it). Of course the course must be closed to regular golf so maybe a less crowded course would be better.

I was playing disc golf. When I kept score it was ball golf. I take about 25 min to run nine holes of ball golf with a score of 44-46 and the winner of this tourney shot 76 in 45 minutes. Those guys were marathoners. I can't run nearly as fast as they can. Also, I've never broken 90 on a champ layout. That's why I play disc golf. I can at least compete.

So what was the winner's actual time, and what was his actual score in that tourney? Gimme the math! It sounds like you coulda won easily!

I had the privilege of being an official scorekeeper in the inaugural speed golf tourney here in San Diego a few years ago. My player finished 18 holes in 45 minutes with a score of 86. the winner had the same time with a score of 76 so score + time is a great way to count. I have played speed golf with both balls and discs. At Morley I only count under-par rounds and my best is 16:21 AT 1 under par.

As far as hurrying goes, 18 minutes for 18 holes with a score of par means that each shot takes an average of 20 seconds. Therefore when you hurry and miss a 10 foot putt instead of taking 15 seconds to make it properly, you have cost yourself 5 seconds by hurrying. Make sense? Not that I have ever ruminated on this ;o))
