Pat Russo's Handicap

4:30 PM -- Trivia time. As I mentioned earlier, Light and Heavy Readers alike are hitting the links today in our annual golf tourney at Heavy Reading's Links Executive Summit 2006.

Now it's time to answer our golf trivia questions:

  • 1) Name the three public communications (or communications equipment) company CEOs with the lowest golf handicaps.

    Answer: According to Golf Digest, here are the communications CEOs who came out in top of their ranking of the best CEO golfers in 2006: 1) Brian L. Roberts, CEO, Comcast Corp. (Nasdaq: CMCSA, CMCSK) (6.7); 2) Ed Whitacre, Chairman and CEO, AT&T Inc. (NYSE: T) (7.4); 3) Patricia Russo, Chairman and CEO, Lucent Technologies Inc. (NYSE: LU) (12.9).

    Hopefully none of them cooked the books!

  • 2) Which exclusive golf club is frequented by Cisco Systems Inc. (Nasdaq: CSCO) CEO John Chambers? Bonus question: What's his golf handicap?

    Answer: According to the Northern California Golf Association (NCGA) database, John T. Chambers regularly plays three clubs: The Corde Valle in San Martin, Calif.; the Tehama Golf Club, in Carmel, Calif; and the Nanea Golf Club in Kailua Kona, Hawaii. Pretty swank, eh?

    According to the scores inputed into the NCGA database, his handicap is a 14.1 as of today.

Curious as to where to look for this stuff? Well it's all online, here.

And now for the answer of the final question.

  • 3) Who won last year's Links golf tourney? What was his/her score?

    Answer: Our very own Dave Williams won the tournament. I'm still trying to locate the score!
Good luck to all of you out on the Golf Course right now!

re: Pat Russo's Handicap Geez, I was sure there would some snide comments about Pat's real handicap (hint: it has to do with her R&D organization). I guess that was too easy a target so no one bothered.
