    Great book tying golf and leadership lessons together

    I love golf and bought this book with a golf read in mind, but ended up liking the leadership ideas gleaned from it the best. I'm an avid reader and this was one of the best books I've read in a while. If you like golf and want to expand upon your leadership skills this one won't disappoint.
