With the Socially Powerful family growing bigger every day, we thought it was time to get to know one another and celebrate one of our own – Nikol Chrenkova, a professional golf player. With a dose of healthy (and not-so-healthy) competition we headed over to Top Golf to learn from a pro and separate the powerful from the pretenders.
First up, we needed to decide the most important thing – who was in each team. With help from a lovely (and patient) lady, the teams were decided…:
Captain: Majid – Natasha, Nick, Paula, and James.
Captain: Neil – Nikol, Coralie, Bran and Chrissie.
… and, after a motivating pep-talk from James, “You’d better f*cking win”, and the expert guidance of Nikol, “You need to pose to make it look good,” the Socially Powerful Open began.
At this point I would love to say that we all aced every shot and did Nikol’s teachings proud – unfortunately, I would be lying. Playing golf turned out to be just as Nikol stated; nerve-wracking, exciting, inconsistent, needing patience and SOCIAL!
Throughout the day we learnt a lot about each other, bonding over our mutual uselessness (none of us will ever be professional golfers - sorry Nikol!) and learning that, although we are Socially Powerful, our skill-set doesn’t necessarily translate over to Top Golf!
We tried our best, and at the end of the day the best team (I may be slightly biased) won.
