This is the first joint event for Club 808. The Greater China Inc (GCI) has many really good players as its employees. Mr. Ben Zhang, the President of GCI who is also our club member won the Longest drive and his group won the 2nd place of the tournament. Congratulations to Ben!

The best group title went to Group 4A where 3 PGA pro joined in. They played incredible 15 birdies with total score 56. Club 808 Group led by Steven Lou won the third place. From this event, we realized that Club 808 still has long way to go in improving its golf average skill levels. Post Game 19th hole was exciting, good social interaction for our members.

昨天的高球比赛很尽兴,我们常被赞助公司Greater China员工精湛的球艺感叹、开眼,他们HCP scatch, 2和4的球手多得很。我们后面一组GC的球手甚是厉害,据说是Pebble Beach的驻堂教练,现在是Ben Zhang手下百万年薪的推销员。他的开杆大摡有300 到320码,我们站在400码开外的果岭上,他的开杆距我们也就60码左右。第十九洞Social 比打球更精彩!

在general gathering 结束之后,Ben 和他的几个超级Sales persons和女伴,与我们聚会在一个圆桌上,幽默的笑话,诙谐的故事让我们时而捧腹大笑,时而碰杯欢呼。故事太多,我略举二个向大家汇报。Ben 讲道有一年江泽民访问西雅图,Ben 花了$5000买了一张歺票到比尔盖茨家做客。其间他见到了江泽民。大家都知道江泽民有些特殊习惯,江用英语对Ben 说,“I am the President of China, who are you? What are you doing?”, Ben 答到,“I am the President of Greater China.” 江泽民没听懂,问了身后的翻译。“对不起,江主席,我翻不出来”。翻译无助地回答道。哈哈哈,还有比江泽民更逗的!

Ben是一个非常平易近人的老板。他向我们介绍了在座的一位员工John. 他说John加入我们公司是一个很偶然的机会。John当时是Aldera 私人球场的工作人员,有一次Ben去Aldera 打球,John 向他推荐球场,邀请Ben加入Aldera. Ben 说我己经是两个私人球场的会员,我不可能打这么多球。婉言谢绝了他。但是,过后的一年中,John又给他打了四次电话邀请加入。最后一次,Ben 看到John 这么persistence 就终于加入了!几个月后John 走进Ben 的办公室,手拿招工广告,问Ben, 你的推销员年薪有$250,000?Ben说,“那是低端工资,年收入百万也有可能!”,“那你为什么不宣传百万年薪呢?”,“我不想要IRS找我麻烦”。因为John非常Persistence, Ben当场就决定录用他。但Ben 还是按招工程序考察他。在人事部门的考核上,John的persistence 一项是全公司最高的,97.2分!不难想象,几年后John的销售业绩勇冠全公司,很快迈入百万年薪的行列…..

从这段故事中,我们可以看到美国公司主管的用人之道和这么一个浅显的道理,即任何一个ordinary 的人都可以成为一个extraordinary, 只要你多那么一点extra. 这是否会对我们那些!想进入百万年收入或进入千万年收入的会员有些启发?会否对我们教育子女开启他们新的人生有些启发?会否对我们打高尔夫有些启发?锲而不舍,水滳石穿就是persistence 的精华所在。如果我们用这种精神去打球,还愁不破100,破90,破80?

19th Social 是我们Jason会长竭力倡议和支持的。其核心价值就是要以球会友,加强会员多层次交流,互动,以达到思想交流,互通有无,共同促进的目的。对Jason 会长的支持,也就是对会员个人健康,生活,事业的支持!我们在19th 洞的Social, 决不是时间上的消耗,而是生活品质的提升。

告诉大家一个消息,玉红,Lisa 这些美丽、热情、好客的天府MM, 想用她们的风辣川味搞一次聚歺,Ben Zhang 是她们的第一位客人,Hugh 是第二位客人,我想得到Jason 会长的支持和批准,请更多的808会员来聚餐,各种风味都欢迎,时间地点另定,不知大家意下如何?

“I was there and second what Roger said”, Steven Yang said, “Many good stories were told last night. The ‘3rd Hole in One’ story of Ben’s was even better. I would say the gathering after game was the best part of yesterday’s event. Thanks to Ben and company, Jason and team for putting this together. We are not going to be professional players. Let us enjoy the process, especially the 19th hole social! Happy Labor Day everyone!”
