Synopsis

Golfers the world over know their game is a microcosm of life. Both golf and life require patience and courage, persistence and honesty, focus and self-belief. They present similar challenges, involve the weighing up of risk and the making of hard decisions. In both golf and life, we must learn to deal with triumph and disaster. Golf teaches us about ego and resilience. It implores us to meet challenges and put disappointments into perspective. Crucially, we realise we should not take the game-or life-too seriously. The Spirit of Golf and How It Applies to Life delves into the rich folklore of the world's greatest game, and recounts inspirational stories from around the world.
