  • Learning leadership on the links

    I have been playing golf for nearly two decades and the one thing that echoes about the game is how much it can teach people. The course is not only a great place to connect, converse, sell or network but also one where heads go home with strict lessons in leadership.

  • For this avid golfer, banking is a fairway

    Many bankers love golf but here is a golfer who turned a banker. Golf flows in Arvind Sethi's blood -- he may well have been a pro.

  • Tiger Woods feasts on burgers, kebabs

    He stuck to grills the night before tee-off. Just a hamburger and a kebab platter from Bukhara at the Sheraton in the national capital. This layered him up to take on the cold morning at a narrow and challenging Lodhi Course at the Delhi Golf Club. But even before he got to the first tee box, Tiger...
