SPEEDGOLF: THIS GOLFER IS NOT ONLY GOOD - HE'S FAST, TOO!

A tee shot over water was no problem for Eri Crum on the Glen Club's 18th hole.
By Len Ziehm
Eri Crum arrived at Stanford University in 1994, the same year that Tiger Woods did. They were teammates on the school's golf team for two years, before Woods started his legendary career as a touring pro. 

Crum stayed at Stanford, earning his letter in golf his final two seasons, and now he's still involved in his sport as a professional. His role is a bit different than Woods', however. Crum has discovered Speedgolf, and he'll defend his title in the Speedgolf World Championship at The Glen Club in Glenview on Oct. 19-20. 

In Speedgolf you're judged on both your score and pace around the course.
