It may soon be necessary for Malaysian Undergraduates to complete golfing lessons as part of their study modules prior to graduation. This will ensure that our undergraduates have the necessary skills to play golf, which is widely known to be the sport that clinches many a business deal. In fact, a report today states that Xiamen University in China has made it compulsory for law and business students to take golf lessons with the aim to help the students find good jobs.

Considering the high number of unemployed graduates in the country, the Higher Education Ministry should seriously look into the Chinese approach. After all, many of the universities in China are ranked higher than our local universities and what better way than to learn from those who are "better" than us?

Besides being equipped with an added "business negotiation skill" and being able to enhance one's networking vide golf buddies, who knows? We might be able to unearth some hidden talents amongst our undergraduates whom we can send to tournaments to represent Malaysia. We have not much glory in the golfing arena todate. Moreover, this compulsory classes will ensure that our numerous golf courses be utilised to the maximum rather than stare at the sun in waste. More jobs would be created and this should stir up the economy a bit. And of course, our undergraduates will have a healthy sport to indulge into rather than spend time, er....blogging?

Practical? Impractical? Serious? Joke? You may your own conclusions.
