McHugh, a former executive with General Motors and Owens-Illinois, believes that golf is a perfect analogy for the corporate boardroom game. By transferring the strategies that work on the course to the office, chances are one will be able to stand out as a leader. The best golfers are passionate about the game and are willing to put in hours of practice. Similarly, according to the author, effective leaders are zealous in their convictions that their behavior will motivate and help others to succeed as well. The chapters - for each of 18-holes of a round of golf - feature leadership principles such as 'Focus,' 'Courage,' 'Responsibility' and 'Recognize Positive Results.' Each chapter, offers numerous anecdotes about both golf and the business world. The book does not attempt to teach or train people to be leaders. The focus instead is to help you in your efforts to learn how to lead more effectively.
