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.
And now for the answer of the final question.
