Overview

Golfers and non-golfers alike will be moved by the powerful transformation that takes place in Golf’s Sacred Journey.

“Read it. Devour it. Keep it as a reference book. You’ll be glad you did. Golf’s Sacred Journey is a remarkable and encouraging story with an entirely different approach on how to succeed in your golf game.”
—Zig Ziglar, leading motivational expert and bestselling author

“This book is full of wisdom that will enhance your game and I believe it just may change your life.”
—David Robinson, NBA MVP, 1992 Olympic Gold Medalist, Two Time World Champion

This book is about influence. The story is based on thousands of athletes the author has counseled, and the great mentors and teachers from whom he has learned, told through the lives of two characters—a rancher with a passion for teaching truth and a young golf professional at the end of his rope.

They represent each of us in the various stages of growth. In life we must be willing to coach and be coached, for either one alone will leave us empty.

I purchased this book and read it at the suggestion of a good friend, despite knowing absolutely nothing about golf. It reads surprisingly like an autobiography, yet it is a novel whose author had a very poignant agenda in writing. The story unfolds by a pro-golfer who earns the distinction of the hightest score in a professional tournament. Needing to refocus his game and skills he take a week out to do so at a small golf course in Utopia, Texas. There he meets a coach that helped him find his game again, probably better than before his embarrassing tragedy. Each day was full of completely different experience that helps him transform not only his golf game but his priorities and life. I could not put this short book down.

The first interest in this book was some of the chapter themes on golfing, fishing, painting, flying. It was more than just a collection of stories of doing "guy" stuff or things that help one escape from the mundane activities of life. It is a story of soul searching...coming to the end of one's rope and knowing there has to be more to life than what I do. What will be the significance of the life I have lived? Is it a list of accomplishments, awards, recognition or will it be pouring into another person's life so they can do the same for another. If you are just looking for some golf tips then this may not be the book for you, but if you are seeking to find a purpose or vision then start the journey to Utopia.
