Take in "Golf's Sacred Journey" with new book
The story behind the book, “Golf’s Sacred Journey, Seven Days at the Links of Utopia” is almost as inspiring as the story inside it.
Dr. David Cook, a respected mental guru, watched his self-published book sell more than 65,000 copies, mostly by word of mouth, before selling the story to a major publisher (Zondervan) last August.
Golf stars like Tom Lehman and Larry Mize have looked to the book for wisdom and inspiration about a game so complex that no one, not even Tiger Woods, has yet mastered it. Cook, who has 30 years of experience working with PGA, NBA, MLB and NFL athletes, crafted a fictional account of a struggling golf pro who meets a small-town rancher who delivers uncommon insight. The setting of the story really exists, a “goat ranch” golf course surrounded by a cemetery in the tiny Texas town of Utopia, 80 miles west of San Antonio.
Cook even holds real-world retreats to the Texas Hill Country to help everyday golfers rediscover the faith in their games, and maybe even, the meaning behind their lives. The hard cover book is available for $16.99.
