Why golf and chemicals go together


The perennial topic of golf and chemicals is given another airing by my colleague Ivan Lerner in our New York office, in a humorous article in this week’s ICIS Chemical Business: “Skip the First 18 Holes.”

He espouses the theory that “the time-honored tradition of petchem deals and camaraderie over nine or 18 holes is down to the work of comedian and actor Bill Murray.”
In the Blog’s last golf special, on the occasion of the 2008 Ryder Cup in September, the Blog was full of admiration for the sporting attitude of chemical industry players in the US, where “some of the players are complete beginners and turn out in the most unflattering shorts. You’d never catch Europeans being so inclusive or so relaxed about appearances.”
