Do you remember your best golf game ever? Chances are it wasn’t out on the green while trying to impress your boss.

And indeed, some old-school employers take the number of strokes a bit too seriously when everyone shuffles back into the office.
Try to imagine yourself as a fresh-faced account manager setting up your cubicle on your first day. You might have golfed a bunch of times throughout high school and college, and you may have even spent some serious time during childhood learning to play golf at the request of your parents.
