The game of golf that we recognize today has a history stretching back nearly 600 years. People young and old, from cultures around the world, all play the game. Anything that endures to such an extent has to resonate with human nature. A BETTER LIE compares the game to common life situations that we all encounter. In the rough? Face your demons. A long drive? Be comfortable with the outcome of a calculated risk. A better lie? Know when you just need to do the right thing.
Golf is a game of etiquette, dress codes, ethics and integrity. The way someone plays speaks volumes about who he or she is as a person. A BETTER LIE reflects on the game as it parallels a golfer’s life in general, or rather, a life well played.
Whether a wonderful gift for the golfer in your world, or a personal way to contemplate your own game and life, A BETTER LIE is a thoughtful and enjoyable read for golfers of all ages.
Chapters include: A Better Lie (Know when you just need to do the right thing), Club Selection (Analyze your options, then go with your gut), Laying Up (Know your limits and have the courage to acknowledge them), In the Rough (Face your demons), and The Long Drive (Be comfortable with the outcome of a calculated risk).
