George also came 2nd in last year’s US Open, achieving the lowest score in the 18 hole round and this year produced the fastest round in the same event. George, despite his young years, embodies the spirit and camaraderie of Speedgolf, always keen to share his knowledge and encourage others to give Speedgolf a go, whatever their ability and is simply a thoroughly nice bloke as anyone who has met him will testify.

A Speedgolf pioneer since the very first test event back in 2014, Steve took a leap of faith and entered to compete in the Inaugural British Speedgolf Championships and was completely hooked. As an enthusiastic amateur golfer and PE Teacher, Steve was intrigued with this sport combining golf with running. He soon discovered that Speedgolf was a great vehicle for fitness, as well as weight loss and to his surprise he also found that contrary to expectations, Speedgolf actually improved his golf game, enabling him to reduce his handicap for golf! Steve always likes a challenge and travelled to Chicago in 2016 to compete in the World Speedgolf Championships. This inspired him to set himself a massive personal goal of setting a Guinness World Record for the fastest hole of golf. He succeeded in 2017 by completing a 500-yard par-five hole in just 1 min 50.6 sec. As well as setting a bar for others to challenge, Steve successfully demonstrated the possibilities of a ‘hole in run’ and firmly put Speedgolf in the spotlight.
