Varun Chadha’s passion for golf started almost two decades ago and for the COO of Tirun Travel Marketing, it’s not just a game, but also teaches him business lessons.

He tells ETPanache, “Golf is a great leveler; you are as good as your last shot. Apply this to business, don’t let the highs get to your head and the lows pull you down. Focus on what is on hand.”

Chadha plays a few games a month and finds it surprising that the less he plays a week, the better he actually is. He says with a laugh, “That is the toss up!”

While the course he uses the most is the ITC Classic Golf Resort, he also likes to play different courses with the Augusta National Golf Club on his bucket list. And who would he love to have a round with? “Herb Kelleher, the chairman of South West Airlines — I would love to pick his brain.”
