Yaw, I know, the golf season started in January and the PGA Tour players have been working hard to get in shape for the first major of the year. Or, should I say most of the PGA Tour players have been working really hard to get ready for the first Major..or heck, even get a chance to play in it. Those players who only meander through the first three months of the golf season and then set up housekeeping at the Augusta National two weeks before the event keep me asking.. Why? I’ll leave that for you to answer since the top players in the world picking and choosing what events they want to play really does not help the events they choose not to play.
But, we are at the first Major Event, The Masters, and the Cream of Crop of professional golf are out there
sucking up pollen playing serious golf in Augusta. So lets get this show on the road, shall we?
Masters Starts Business Golf Season
Need I remind you that the Business Golf season also has started. Well, in reality, business golf season never ends once you start it, but when the Masters gets here..the Business Golf fever is at a favored pitch around the country. Just something about this event that gets the business people out on the course to play with customers, employees or vendors…and of course, with me.
For the past month the #1 topic of conversation on the golf course has been “Whose favored for the Masters”, “What ya think Tiger is going to say at the Masters”, “I wonder how much fertilizer they use at Augusta National to get that place so Green for the Masters”. Yes, I have entertained a large number of thoughts with business people about the Masters on the golf course as part of a round of Business Golf. I am not complaining since this is GOOD.
Good Start for Business Golf Season
I am rather encouraged with the increase in the number of people who formerly turned down golf as a form of business development now calling me to say..”Hey, tell me more about this Business Golf thing”. It seems the Masters plays a large part in the lives of the people they want to do business with so they come to me to get pointers on how to use golf as a business tool. Their questions about the Masters sometimes fills my list of things to research for them when I get to my office.
It really is fun and invigorating to set people straight on the do’s and don’ts of business golf. Hopefully, my efforts will help not just business golf but a number of issues related to the issues golf has in general. I can only hope.
Enjoy your Masters week and let me know how I can help.
