How Billionaires Play Golf – What to Expect

No matter who you play golf with, the expectations are the same. Each person has a different skillset and ability when it comes to golf, but the only thing that everyone has in common is their wish to have some fun. The same applies to the most professional of golfers as well as those who know nothing at all when it comes to the sport. Playing golf is fun, especially when you play with another friend. Playing golf with a billionaire is known to be quite taxing. This is due to many stereotypes and expectations of others. Included in the list below are some of the behavior and playing styles and more, that is usually expected when you are playing with or against a billionaire.

Be Friendly

The first and most common mistake made by those when playing against a billionaire is acting awkward or causing discomfort. When playing a game of golf it is important to start off with creating a good relationship with your partner, regardless of their abilities and personality. So if you are playing with a billionaire, it is essential to ensure that they are comfortable, and so are you. If you are dealing with a billionaire who is known for many sycophants plying him for his money and riches, it may be an welcome release if you act the opposite. Trading good-natured insults can help in relieving any stress of the situation and also help the individuals to kick back and have some fun.

Betting

Making wagers on scores and strokes of your play may seem immensely fun, but it is also important that you realize that you are playing with a billionaire. Although no one can get more testy about money and betting than a billionaire, it is suggested that you do not try it. Making small wagers, like paying for the next round of drinks or making a ten dollar bet, can also be fun to try out for the group. It not only makes everyone work harder; it also makes everyone look forward to the outcome of the game.

Golf Tips

By far, one of the most important of expectations in this list is the tips for playing golf. Although there are many ways of playing golf, there are also many tips for improving your stroke and accuracy. However, it is essential that you avoid the use and spreading of tips. Though it may help a player immensely, it can also backfire horribly. However, that can sometimes happen only when the player doesn’t execute the tip properly. A suggestion that should be used on the playing field with a billionaire, however, is the swing tempo. By whispering a name to time their back and downswings, a player can efficiently time their strokes. However, those names must have more than four syllables; otherwise the tempo of the swing will increase. Not only will this help improve your swing, but it can also be amusing as to deciding whose name to utter.
