Be a Rose and Balls Up!

Professional golfer Justin Rose called a one-stroke penalty on himself yesterday in Qatar. He addressed the ball on the green and the ball moved slightly. He saw it move, although no one else did.

I appreciate his honesty and would prefer to work with someone like him. Your clients and prospects probably feel the same way. I coached a single-digit golfer and FA. I reminded him to follow the Rules, especially since he's a good golfer. His playing partners will likely presume he knows the Rules because he's an accomplished golfer.

When he hit two balls consecutively out of bounds and had to walk back to the tee box after looking for the ball, he got a multi-million dollar client. His client later said when he saw him apply the Rules and took his bad shots so well, he knew he wanted to work with him. That's using the Rules to your advantage!
