2008 Olympic silver medallist Nick Willis struggled today on day two of the 2013 World Speed Golf Championships at the Bandon Dunes Golf Resort in Oregon. Willis, who was in sixth after day 1 of the 2 day event thanks to an 86 in 44:20 minutes of play, only shot 97 on day two but did improve his time to 43:07.

His two day total score (strokes plus time) of 270.27 ended up placing Willis exactly in the middle of the 25 person field as he finished 13th.

Day 1 leader Rob Hogan of Ireland, who recently ran 30:12 in a 5 mile race, wasn’t quite as good on day 2 (79 strokes, 41:24) but he still ended up the champion. Willis’ fellow Olympic medallist at 1500, Bernard Lagat, started day 2 on last and ended up last although he did lower his stroke total from 118 to 110 on day 2.
