is not to be mixed up with sportsmanship and is quite
the opposite - but not cheating !
subtle comments before tee off can rattle, distract
and confuse the oppositions. “My hands tend
to be a little swollen in the morning and my gloves
don’t fit” can get the opposition thinking
off whether his hands are swollen while he is teeing
off . Making a comment in front of the long hitter
of the opposition “ my doctor told me to be
careful and not overswing and sprain my back”
can cause the bloke who hits 300 yards on his tee
shot something to think off !
aren’t talking cheating here, Sportsmanship
and following the rules is a must.
generous and give the opposition just a little extra
leeway- just so that they do the same for you !
is the key to business success. Get the vibes right
not only with your partner but also with you caddy.
Make sure you have the right caddy and if you don’t
have a choice figure out before you start what he
is good at and at what he is not. Some caddies are
excellent at the “line of putting”, some
at sizing you and the wind direction up quickly and
helping you choose the right club . Check if they
are drunk and dump him, if he is. If you don’t
enjoy playing with the people you are playing with,
you can’t play well.
careful and considerate
careful of poorly guided missiles of others! and be
mindful of others on the course, both for safety and
say golf is a gentleman’s game. They also say
golf brings out your true character. I say golf changes
your character, sometimes for the better and sometimes
for the worse. Ops! have I opened a Pandora’s
in business succeed most who have the most fun. The
main purpose for me to be on the course is to have
fun and not to win or loose, I enjoy the exercise,
the openness of space, the birds – including
the two legged ones, and the company. I believe that
sharing a joke a hole is more important than getting
a stroke a hole!
