Linder believes and shows that those annoying, frustrating, or at-the-time tragic situations on the golf course can reveal life's great truths and foster spiritual development. Whether it is a perfect drive by a novice, a duffer sinking an impossible putt, or a miraculous chip shot, these totally unpredicable occurrences reveal a mystery that, if explored with patience and alertness, can, like religion, lead a person to deeper, ineffable truths. Through humorous anecdotes and accounts of personal experiences, Linder shows how these truths learned in the game can be applied in our lives, off the course as well as on.
