Golf is an individual's game. Although people strive to beat each other, they do not do so as team (pace the Ryder Cup itself). Team sports, as the previous Conservative government recognised, have the benefit of instilling a group spirit as well as encouraging individual performance and enjoyment. We all have to learn to work with each other, to excuse each other's shortcomings. Winning and losing do not come naturally to youngsters.
