Hamilton College head men's and women's golf coach Lauren Cupp '07 recently set the world record for women's Speedgolf at a Speedgolf USA Tour Series tournament.

Cupp set the record during the 2021 Thirsty Owl New York Speedgolf Open Championship at Teugega Country Club in Rome, N.Y., on August 8. A player's Speedgolf score is the sum of their total shots and how many minutes it takes them to play 18 holes.

Cupp's record performance of 122:48 in the tournament's first round shattered the previous mark of 126:41 by New Zealand's Liz McKinnon at the 2018 British Speedgolf Open. Cupp carded a 1-under par 72 and completed the course in just 50 minutes and 48 seconds.

Cupp also would have broken McKinnon's record during the tournament's second day at Rome Country Club on August 9 as she posted another 72 and ran the course in 53:08 for a 125:08 total. Her two-day score of 247:56 would have put Cupp in third place in the tournament's Men's Professional Open Division if she played in it.

Cupp won the U.S. and World Speedgolf championships in 2018 and is currently the top-ranked woman in the world. She claimed another title at the 2019 Japan Speedgolf Open.
