Champions Know the Value of Preparation

posted in: business | 0

I spent the past few weeks watching some great golf in the Sandhills of North Carolina. The U.S. Open and U.S. Women’s Open were played on consecutive weeks on Pinehurst Resort’s No. 2 Course. It’s the first time the two championships have been played back-to-back at the same site.

The U.S. Open was great, but it didn’t have much suspense as Martin Kaymer won easily. The U.S. Women’s Open was more exciting as Michelle Wie won her first major when she made a crucial putt on the next-to-last hole.

I watched Wie during one of the practice rounds before the tournament started. When she got to each green, she spent a lot of time trying shots from every angle. Other players took practice shots around the green, but I didn’t see any women or men who practiced on the greens like Wie.

If you know anything about Pinehurst No. 2, it’s known for it’s difficult greens. During the championship, Wie’s preparation paid off. She never took more than two putts on any green on her way to the title.

Similar preparation pays off in business. It pays to have a system that gets you ready for any situation.
