Robert Hogan is the 2022 British Open Speedgolf champion after firing two incredible scores at a frantic pace at The Springs club in Oxfordshire.
Speedgolf combines strokes played and the time taken to complete the round with players using a maximum of six clubs. Each shot is 60 seconds and the total number of shots is added to the time it takes a player to complete his round. So, a 73 gross score plus 40 minutes of playing time gives an overall score of 113.
With that in mind, Hogan arrived fresh off winning the Irish Speedgolf Open at Dundrum House in Tipperary and managed to break 80 twice; his first round 79 completed in 35 minutes, 37 seconds before a second round 75 was signed for in just 34 minutes, 47 seconds.

All-told, Hogan’s -26:36 score to par proved untouchable with the Galway-based speedster, who has plied his trade in the United States on his way to becoming Speedgolf’s only multiple world champion, once again setting the bar in the Speedgolf stakes.
