You never really know when you might meet someone who will change your life. Golf's Sacred Journey is a story about a 'chance' meeting between a fictitious golf professional and his unorthodox mentor. As the story unfolds, we---along with the pro---learn lessons about golf and life that we never expected to learn in places we never expected to learn them. Many have picked up Golf's Sacred Journey looking for the secret to a better game but instead found the secret to a meaningful life.

If you ever want to learn how to better control your emotions on and off the course, this book is a must read. I enjoyed getting lumps in my throat listening to this book as the examples and lessons can be profound yet simply stated. I'm ready to take my game and my life to the next level of understanding and compassion. I'm no longer trapped by my score or how many birdies I make, but free to enjoy the game for what it is. I can't wait to play!
Read it even if you don't play golf. It's about a new way to look at life. THe golf tips are a plus. I bought the putter. It works!
One of the top
The point where I buried the lies clouding my life.
A friendly voice in the dark.
Great story, to change you're life
Speaks to life in general in the format of a golfer is time of difficulty. Inspiring, accurate, and valuable thoughts for all ages. Well presented and in terms that all should be able to appreciate if they think about the content and not just the example. Excellent to read and reread.
If you’re an avid golfer and understand the importance of the mental game then buy this audio book and listen until you get to the 7th day. Until that point the book lays out some useful material and helps you put the game into prospective. It puts forth some tangible techniques for the mental game mixed with a charming story. Now you should continue with the 7th day if you are a born again Christian or if you feel the need to be saved. The rest of the book is boundless preaching to help you find your way to Jesus. If you are of that mind then you will enjoy this book until the end; if you are not but have a thirst for the mental side of the game then the book is worth your time. The narrator is not a very good. I think he is new; this is the only book he has done on Audible and it shows. Minus 2 for the narrator and minus 1 for the 7th day; 3 stars.
This book will not only change the way you think about and play golf, it will change the way you think about life. While most golf psychology books repeat the same basic fundamentals, David Cook takes the reader through a journey that will leave you with a new perspective on golf allowing you to play more freely and to live life with greater purpose. Once you begin this compelling book, you will not be able to stop listening.
Was disappointed in that I thought this was a sappy religious book that really didn't have any redeeming golf wisdom in it. If you want a religious book then you'll probably love it.
