A US golfing magazine recorded the golfing skills of 51 Chief Executives and compared their results,
with the three year stock market performance of their companies. The 11 bosses with the best
handicaps (average 12.4) were from companies with the best share performance. The 11 poorest
golfers (average 17.2) belonged to the worst performing companies. The Sunday Times revealed a similar
pattern for the UK. Jack Welch former Chairman and CEO of GE is a case in point. A 2 handicap golfer
who ran the largest company in the world for 20 years with a compound share price growth of 20%. Just
how do you perform that well over two decades, and also play such amazing golf?
Experts agree that golf is anything up to 95% 'mental' and is a powerful metaphor for learning valuable
lessons, like; achieving focused goals, managing anxiety and fear, confidence, concentration, dispelling
disappointment, discipline, competitiveness and remaining calm under pressure.
Who Would Benefit?
All directors, executives, managers, sales, HR and other professionals who play, or are merely interested,
and want to discover how excelling at golf, or other sports for that matter, can enhance their personal,
career and professional performance.

lower your scores and handicap in golf, whilst improving business success.
