Golf Tip Tuesday: Manners

It is both polite and shows good sportsmanship to compliment an opponent if the hit is exceptional. 

Golf is supposed to be the "gentlemen's sport" -- which means that manners matter. Of course, show up on any golf course at any time, and you can probably find your share of cursing and bad manners. At least quietly.

But one of my favorite parts of golf are that people tell you when you've done something well. And you always know the serious players by their good manners.

That's one of the things my husband loves about the game! He comes home glowing when he gets a compliment from a good player in his group :)

Are you suggesting I compliment you if you publish first? But wait, we're not competitors :P

Kristine Asselin said...

LOL, Jon! And I will absolutely compliment you if you publish first. Not that we're competitors. :)

By the way, I love your blog.

Lovely! What a nice sport. Haven't ever played it, though. Ha, and yes, let's be just as complimentary when our fellow writers get an agent, get published, and win all sorts of awards for their books!!
