If you’re a corporate executive of a company, you’ve got to read this…if you’re a women who thinks golf is for men, you’ve got to read this…and if you’re just a Joe-blow golfer, you’ll enjoy it too. In India..golf is finally getting its place in society as a business tool, a women’s avenue to escape the “anti-kitty” crowd and a non-intimidating “stress-buster” game for the average business person.
WHAT???…okay…Golf is a fabulous business tool (I agree, and so does Mr. Business Golf, who teaches us how to use golf as a tool to better perform in business), and it’s a great tool for women to break out of the mold and network with friends and fellow golfers (male or female)…but to say that golf is a non-intimidating stress-buster game, is just too ridiculous for words. There is nothing…absolutely nothing more stressful and intimidating than golf – nothing!! Nada…..nothing…no way…no how!!!!
Golf is THE most stressful and intimidating sport in the whole world BECAUSE you play against yourself. How many times have you heard celebrities and the world’s best golfers say that they “need to get out of their own way”. There’s a good reason for that…Golf is the biggest challenge you will ever personally face in the arena of sport. Ask the greatest sports figures of their time…Wayne Gretzky and Michael Jordon … the world’s best athletes perhaps that ever lived, except in golf… and they’ll tell you that golf is a cruel master and one that we’ll gladly lay down our egos to play again and again and again…just because…it’s more addictive than alcohol and drugs…
It’s almost ironic that golf is introducing drug testing into the sport, because golf IS a drug – an addictive and cruel drug that keeps us coming back again and again to rid our demons of past slices, hooks and, dare I say, sh__ks to prove that we are worthy.
ha ha…I had to share this story from India’s Economics Times because it proves that we still haven’t learned…In golf, like in casinos…the only winner, is the “house/course”.
But in the infamous words of Oliver Twist, let us say together…”Please Sir, can I have some more???”
Hit me… 🙂
