Dr. Eri Crum in the 2015 Speedgolf Championship.
As a participant in the past three World Speedgolf
Championship events, Eri Crum, D.C., San Jose
’04, has completed three rounds of golf in the time
that it typically takes the average player to complete
three holes. Dr. Crum won the 2014 Speedgolf
Championship by shooting a four-over-par 76 at
the Bandon Dunes Resort—in just 46 minutes!
He fell short in defending his world-champion title
at the Speedgolf World Championship in October
2015 at the Glen Club in Chicago, but Dr. Crum
garnered national media coverage (including a feature
profile in the Chicago Tribune, as well as an interview
on ESPN’s “Sports Medicine Weekly”
program), by discussing and demonstrating the
sport at a pre-tournament promotion event.
In addition to talking about the sport of speedgolf
(which determines the player’s score by combining
their time and total to complete 18 holes—with just
a small bag of clubs), the media blitz also provided
Dr. Crum with an opportunity to talk about his primary
career as a chiropractor.
“I’ve always had the dream of marrying chiropractic
with golf,” adds Dr. Crum. He just celebrated a
decade in practice at the Boise Spine Center in
Idaho, where he combines his love for golf with his
passion for patient care. “Having played golf at a
high level, golfers in need of a chiropractor trust my
opinion when it comes to getting them out of pain,
and helping with some golf biomechanics.”
