Congratulations to Jamie Young who becomes the 2016 World Speedgolf Champion in a thrilling and fast two day championship at The Glen Club, near Chicago, USA. 29 players from as far afield as Japan, Ireland, England and Australia competed for the World Title. The Championship was run over two days, with players completing two 18 hole Speedgolf rounds. Jamie is 52 from Kenosha, Wisconsin, USA. Over the two days his combined Speedgolf Score was 254:28 demonstrating a solid golf performance and consistently fast times just over 50 minutes in both rounds!
Aside from the Elite field, others from across the globe competed in the amateur and age range classes and the dedicated women’s division. Most completed their 18 holes in under 70 minutes with the best in the field shooting just a few strokes over PAR. More news from the World Speedgolf Championships to follow shortly…
