San Jose alum sprints to the top in speedgolf

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.”
