More Golf Analogies for Entrepreneurs - by Ravi Patel

 

 

As I play and watch golf, I am constantly amazed by the analogies between golf and business.

 

On a macro level, course management is extremely important to professional golfers. Days before a tournament, pro golfers and their caddies study a course, especially a new one, to evaluate the layout, the challenges, the distances and so on. Entrepreneurs should be doing the same things - evaluating the market, understanding the layout, their own SWOT analysis and how it fits in the market landscape and so on. Preparing ahead of time is a contributor to success.

 

Playing from behind and winning, or beingĀ in the lead and finishing first in golf requires unique strategies by pro golfers. It is fascinating to watch these plans unfold as someone like Tiger is playing on the final day. Similarly in business, Entrepreneurs need to develop unique strategies for either playing from behind in the competitive marketplace or constantly maintaining the lead.

 

Golf and business - lots in common!
