While playing with someone you form a bond — you talk about families, your children, your dogs. You get to know them quickly and get a sense of their personality in a way you could never do in the boardroom, or at a cocktail party.” Colette Phillips, CEO Phillips Communications Inc., Golf for Women Magazine, 2004
