Instructor and blogger give tips on mixing business with the game

Green adds that you want to familiarize yourself with the golf facility. Start off with the basic fundamentals: the right grip, the right stance and posture. Don’t go out there if you don’t know what you doing. Don’t go out there wearing clothes that you shouldn’t wear, don’t go out there if you haven’t played before.”

Fitzgerald agrees. “You should know the rules. And you should know the basic golf etiquette. When you’re playing for business people expect you to know the rules and the etiquette of the game. That’s just basic.”

She also stresses that whenever you get out on the green to shoot a few holes with potential business partners it’s important to realize that you are being carefully scrutinized. Your business partner or interest is watching to see, whether you can hit a bad shot and let it impact your next move. “How strategic are you?” she adds. “How are you going to play this hole? Are you a sore loser? Are you a bad winner? You can make a pretty good assessment about how well you know that person in the aspect of how will you do business with them or how will they do business with you.”
