The story of 2-time Speedgolf World Champion Rob Hogan is one sprinkled with imperfections, failures, and knowledge gaps. And Rob is more than willing to talk about the struggles and obstacles that have defined his golfing career. There is a lot Rob will admit he doesn’t know or have an opinion about. But it quickly becomes apparent that it is precisely this state of not knowing, this yielding of control, that both fascinates and drives Hogan towards the limits of what most people believe is possible in the world of golf: the coveted Speedgolf score score of 99. The equivalent of the 4 minute mile in track and field, or the elusive score of 59 in golf.

Since 2013, Hogan has either won or finished 2nd in every Speedgolf event he’s played in. And he keeps getting better every year. He is the reigning, two-time Speedgolf World Champion, the reigning British Speedgolf Champion, 2-time Eastern Speedgolf Open Champion, and has multiple 18 hole championship Speedgolf rounds under 40 minutes.

How Rob Hogan from the little town of Bray, Ireland becomes Speedgolf Rob, the fastest golfer in the world, is a story as much about passion as it is Providence. It’s the story of a young man who emerges from the difficult plot twists in life without losing grasp of the awe and boundless potential he had going in. Ultimately, it’s a story about courageously yet light-heartedly entrusting our dreams, and the results of our efforts, to the mysterious and unknowable forces that shape and forge our destiny.

Rain

Looking out to the rain, falling into the puddles, into the grass, onto the stones. The drops to the grass disapearing, joining the earth. The drops to the puddles jumping up, together with a group of other drops, a small height, and then back to the puddles and then to the earth. The drops to … Continue reading

On my bike!

A mood modifying morning spent mostly modernising masterfully made muted mocha milled mind maps. Feelings are familiar. Flippin’ feelings forcefully fragrantly fifth dimensionally floating freely finding fallacies facts forget. So I get on my bike and I cycle up a hill. Hastily so my heart happily harbours hopes of hacking history.
