It may seem strange to think of golf as a sport that goes beyond relaxation or fun and consider it as an incentive for business or developing productivity within a company. Curious, but yes it is. There is a relationship between golf and business, and it is fruitful.
How can this happen? According to experts, the practice of golf relaxes people and allows them to forget the worries of the office. A round of golf means being outside at least four or five hours, brisk walking at least six or seven miles, all of which are excellent for the health, both mental and physical, of an individual.
You can get to know someone better in four hours on the golf course than in countless meetings in an office. You are free from distractions and can focus on building business relationships.
Playing golf requires many skills that have parallels to business; focus, visualization (to see the effects of strokes, an ability to plan actions, the need to be constantly making decisions (club to use, body’s position, range of motion etc …), the need to make sense of what you do, and reactivity and correction of errors on the fly. All of these are actions that go hand in hand with management skills. If a golfer develops these capabilities, then it is logical to help in other areas of their life.
Passion and golf swing, precision in business
