Inspirational Tales From The World's Greatest Game

Richard Allen
Delves into the rich folklore of the world's greatest game and recounts inspirational life stories from courses around the world.
Golfers the world over know their game is a microcosm of life.

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 reward and demand the making of hard decisions. In both, we must learn to deal with triumph and disaster. In this updated edition of The Spirit of Golf and How It Applies to Life Richard Allen adds to the hilarious and inspirational stories that are part of life on the links. He documents golfer's concerns with rabbits, appropriate hair styles and club meals, reminds us of the unique friendships formed on the greens and tells the amazing story of the 22-year-old unprofessional lad who hit 42 holes in one.

But above all he reminds us it is important not to take the game—or life—too seriously.
