What is the World’s Most Common Golfer Stereotype?

Share Article

A new quiz released from Golfplan looks to find an answer to 'what is the world's most common golfer stereotype?'

Golf has many characters and many stereotypes that are often discussed over a round of drinks. But which is the most common?

The staff at golf insurance provider, Golfplan Insurance, are hoping to produce an answer to this with a light-hearted quiz based on insight and data.

This quiz proposes nine different scenarios that pretty much every golfer will have experienced at some point or another. For each scenario there are four possible outcomes, each adding to a certain profile. At the conclusion of the round of nine scenarios, a result is punched out.

Golf is like most sports, or indeed professions, in that it brings together a myriad of different people from all walks of life.

However, golf is unique in that it lets the golfer’s personality take centre stage. Perhaps because it is an individual sport or it could be something to do with the extended periods of play.

Whatever the reason, golf is a game that it lets ones personality shine through.

This is why, the people at Golfplan have done some data capture for all countries in the world and are hoping, from this, to discover more about the most popular stereotype.

Having conducted research and analysis, Golfplan have created not just authentic profiles, but also scenarios that most golfers can relate to.

For anyone wanting to take the quiz to find out what golfing profile they fit and perhaps friends too: golfplan.co.uk/golf-quiz
