Publisher's Description

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.

    Golf is a game I'm not very good at nor do I like watching it on TV necessarily, but I do like playing it anyhow on occasion with my Dad; my late grandfather loved golf and was good at it. I was inspired to read this book, because of a friend on Twitter as well as the new Seven Days in Utopia movie coming to theaters September 2nd, 2011. The movie looked good in the trailer so I wanted to read the book first and see how this would be.

    Golf's Sacred Journey is a story, written by David L. Cook, which concerns a young PGA golfer who is getting frustrated by a spell of poor gameplay. To unwind, he drives around and finds a town called Utopia, Texas. In that small town he meets an older, experienced golfer named Johnny. Johnny knows there is potential in this young golfer and offers to teach him; some of what is taught is more than just simple swinging techniques.

    I like the fact this is easy to read due to the amount of pages and the vocabulary used, because I feel most people within their tweens or older should be able to read this book without getting too confused. Though I'd have to reread this and test out some of the stuff Johnny talks about, I can tell by the descriptive language that Mr. Cook has a good share of golfing experience under his belt. I don't know why, but in some ways this story reminded me of a mixture between Cars and The Karate Kid a little bit, only this story about golf and has a hint of Christian theology attached to it. Some readers might feel chapter 6 is offensive due to Johnny and his student participating in a gambling game; I wasn't offended for those curious. In the grand scheme of things, I thought this was a pretty good book. As I first admitted, I'm not the best golfer out there and probably don't have as much passion for the game as others out there, but I liked it and figure those who like to play golf might like to read this story as well; hope the movie is as good as the book.

    David Cook deftly portrays the sad pitfalls resulting from self-centeredness, personal pride and the strong need for total control over one's life experiences. Releasing oneself from the bonds of these prisons comes from truly loving God and others. Then true liberation, personal fulfillment, emotional wellbeing and success can come from an outward life focus, not an inward life focus. God = target!
