According to a 2009 study, CEOs who don’t play golf are paid 17% less (on average) than those who do! Golf has long been considered a favorite sport of business professionals, buy why? Julian Small, CEO of Wentworth Golf Club in London, has a few ideas. First, golf is a sport that accommodates players of every age – even frail 65-year old bosses can get it on the action without taking health risks. Secondly, thanks to the handicap system, players at different skill levels can still enjoy competitive matches against each other without embarrassment. The third reason, and maybe the most important, is that golf isn’t exactly the most action-packed sport in the world. This means in a four-hour game, most of the time can be spent talking business, with short breaks to actually, you know – play the game.
Small also thinks that golf can be a good judge of a person’s character. The best players are those who perform well under pressure, stay even-tempered, and think strategically.
