These above proportions demonstrate that golf is one of the most attractive sports for businessmen today.
1. ENHANCE HEALTH - STRENGTHEN WILLPOWER
After the hustle and bustle at the office with stressful duties, most businessmen opt to relax at the golf course. Simply because they are able to immerse themselves in nature which is an open, airy, and tranquil space. This is not straightforward to find in skyscrapers. Additionally, walking an 18-hole round of golf with a variety of terrain helps players burn up to 2000 calories, and have a lot of time to get their thoughts centered. Besides enhancing health, when it comes to golf, they must focus their mind and spirit and eliminate all distractions to create the perfect swings. Therefore, this ultimate sport also aids businessmen to strengthen their willpower, strong mentality, and ability to analyze and evaluate situations through each shot to make the most informed decisions.
2. SEIZE OPPORTUNITIES - BUILD RELATIONSHIPS
Golfers spend an average of more than 4-5 hours on a round of 18 holes. This is considered one of the sports with the longest playing times. Hence, the golf course becomes the focal point of attention for interesting successful businessmen since the quality time provides the golden opportunity to get to know partners, connect with them, have conversations, and gradually build long-lasting relationships that the office environment can hardly obtain.
3. FIGURE OUT OPPONENT - PROPOSE COLLABORATION
In the novel called The Pothunters by P. G. Wodehouse wrote that ''To find a man's true character, play golf with him''. Whether you want it to or not, observing behavior and the different situations that arise on the course show that he/she is most likely a confident and calm person or a hot-tempered one. Moreover, the way golfers react to missed shots mirrors how they react to success, frustration, and pressure in the business. These are all premises to evaluate whether to cooperate together to make million-dollar deals or not.
