This year’s Masters was another amazing edition of one of the world’s most-watched golf tournaments. Seeing a 21-year-old player display poise beyond his years and smash all sorts of records en route to his first major championship was inspiring. It was awesome to see great performances from some of the veteran champions, too. Watching the Masters this year reinforced for me the idea that there are parallel skills in golf and business.
One of the most important of those skills is the recovery shot. The best golfers in the world all seem to have an uncanny ability to follow up a bad shot with a really good one. That is as important in the business world as it is in championship golf.
