The Speed Golf World Championships will air on CBS on April 13 (Masters Saturday) this year. The video above of somebody breaking 70 in 54 minutes is just mesmerizing.

Seriously, I can't stop watching it.

Golf WRX explains what the experience of speed golf is like:

For those not familiar with the sport, speed golf combines your normal golf score with the amount of time that it takes you to finish the round. For example, if you shoot 85 in 75 minutes, your speed golf score would be 160.
The rules of speed golf are basically the same as regular golf except you are allowed to putt with the flagstick in the hole to save time, and lost balls or out-of-bounds balls are treated more or less as lateral hazards.

My only question is whether or not you have to be in marathonlike condition to haul around the course in under an hour with a set of clubs.

Maybe the Tour should implement this to solve its slow play issues.
