This book is an experiential diary of a journey into the heart and soul of golf. I have mentioned humorously that single figure golfers don’t have many friends. Actually, this is pretty close to the truth of the matter because the unrelenting demand of golf at the pointy end can leave little time for relationships. Golf can be a vortex into which the seeker disappears in search of perfection.

Who Wrote The Golf Book?

Robert Sudha Hamilton is a writer and historian. He has spent many years studying the goings on in the pages of ancient history in the hope of making some sense about our world. Playing golf sometimes kept him sane, striding out there on the golf course in all kinds of weather. Swinging a club made him feel alive, amid the triumphs and disasters during a round. The physical pursuit of golf is accompanied by our hopes and fears. Alexander the Great was a short Macedonian who conquered half the world, with sword in hand on the back of Bucephalus. A mighty round of golf can sometimes feel like you have done battle and come out the other side on top. The modern life is depressingly sedentary and all about pressing buttons. Golf has all these clubs and is played in the great outdoors. Competing at golf keeps some of us from becoming blunted. Devoting our energies into getting better at the game of golf sharpens our edge. Holding a club in hand and preparing for a shot can be exciting. The danger of risk reward gets the heart beating.

Golf involves strategy and psychology. You really get to know yourself out on the course. How you deal with perceived pressure or don’t. Golf becomes a microcosm for how you live your life. The Golf Book: Green Cathedral Dreams elucidates this territory and provides solutions. Entertaining and challenging it dares to go where not many golf books have ever gone before. 251 pages in paperback. Also available as an ebook for your convenience.
