Golf lovers prepare yourselves.
For many of us golf is more than just a sport, or hobby, or something we watch on TV. Golf is something else; it’s a part of life, part of the rhythm of business and a functional aspect of working in a relationship-driven industry. For the month of August I’m going to talk about golf. A lot. In today’s post I’ve selected a few great articles that speak to the business side of golf and in coming weeks you’ll see more on the science and art of the sport, and some just-for-fun-content.
I’d also like to invite you to connect with me on Linkedin where for the entire month of August I’ll be posting some of the most inspirational, humorous, and spot-on golf quotes, every few days.
