My name is William McDaniel. I put a lot of thought into my idea for senior project and wanted to choose something that would truly benefit my future. This is why learning how to golf was a great decision and challenge. Golf can be more than just a game if looked at from a business perspective. My goal for the future is to pursue a degree in business and enter the field of business. Golf can now be an important tool I can use in the business world for gaining clients, closing deals, and making connections.
My research paper was based on golf’s strong connection with the business world. I always knew that businessmen went golfing but not exactly how many. After reading several articles on the topic, I realized that golf really is more than a sport. It is a great way to form connections while having a great time. I also surveyed fifty random golfers at Towne Lake Hills Clubhouse. I asked: Do you golf for business, leisure, or both? Over half of the participants golfed strictly for business. This helped me confirm the strong correlation between golf and business.
My final product is a before and after video of me golfing. The improvement is very clear, and I could not be more proud. My project facilitator, Bill Murchison, helped me overcome extreme frustration and become a decent golfer. If I was repeating the same mistakes, he would always know the perfect drill to fix the problem. The video includes several different swings from a variety of clubs.
I have learned many things about golf, business, and myself through this project. I plan on getting a degree in business at Georgia Southern University and playing golf often in my future career. The sport will be a big factor when it comes to forming connections and might even be a deal breaker in some scenarios! I never thought I could learn how to play such a complicated game at such a late age. Overcoming the adversity has made me a more confident and determined person.
At first, I thought Senior Project would not have any impact on my future whatsoever. Now I know that the skills I have obtained can create great opportunities. Thank you for your time, judges!
