In an article that appeared in the recent edition of Asian Golf Business magazine, Bruce Charlton, ASGCA commented on the similarities between the game of golf and soccer, or “football.”

Charlton writes that golf has the same kind of powerful worldwide influence, just on a smaller scale. He credits its smaller appeal to the fact that golf is an individual sport, in which players almost exclusively compete without actual help from teammates. Charlton also says that golf is an international language, as players who don’t speak the same language are still able to understand words exclaimed in passion and excitement.

In the article, Charlton also indicates that the ideals shared by golf and soccer are the same: bring the diverse peoples of the world together through friendly competition. He writes, “Perhaps more than any sport on the planet, golf creates camaraderie even among competitors, and, as such, is very important on the international scene.”
