Did Henry Picard work independently or with a team on his projects?

Henry Picard, well-known as a professional golfer, would have had a support system typical for athletes of his time, but the nature of golf is predominantly individual. However, for his training and competition preparation, he likely collaborated with a variety of coaches, caddies, and possibly other staff members. These collaborations, though crucial, would not constitute a "team" in the same sense as team sports. Instead, these relationships were focused on improving his individual performance and skill set.

How did Henry Picard's work influence modern technology?

Henry Picard was a professional golfer, not a technologist or inventor, so he did not directly influence modern technology in the conventional sense relating to science and tech innovations. His career was centered around the sport of golf, where he was successful during the 1930s and 1940s. Considering technology within the realm of golf, however, professionals like Picard helped popularize the sport and brought attention to it, which subsequently could have indirectly influenced advancements in golf equipment and techniques. However, directly attributing modern technological advancements to Picard's work in golf would be inaccurate.

What was one of Henry Picard's failed projects and what was learned from it?

Henry Picard was a professional golfer, not widely known for "failed projects" in the traditional business or scientific sense, as his career primarily revolved around playing and teaching golf. Most of his professional undertakings were successes, contributing to his reputation as a leading golfer during the 1930s and 1940s and later as a respected golf instructor. If your question pertains to any specific aspect of his career, such as a significant loss or a learning moment during a tournament, I could certainly explore that. However, in terms of business-like "projects" or ventures that failed, there isn't a noted history directly related to him in that context.
