Dr. David Cook releases the book, Johnny's U.S. Open: Golf's Sacred Journey 2
I still haven’t seen the movie made in 2011, starring Robert Duvall, that tells the story of Dr. David Cook’s successful first book, Golf’s Sacred Journey, Seven Days at the Links of Utopia.
I reviewed the original book (read here) and of course wouldn’t dare pass up the chance to review his sequel, Johnny’s U.S. Open: Golf’s Sacred Journey 2, which published Aug. 5 by Sacred Journey Stories Publishers. The 164-page paperback, available at www.linksofutopia.com, retails for $24.95.
His first book left us with the putt to win the Texas Open rolling toward the hole without revealing if it went in. Turns out it did, but the point is this: “Does it really matter?”
This book spends more time in “Utopia” before a showdown at the U.S. Open, the ultimate test of mental fortitude and talent. I won’t reveal much more. Instead I’ll let Cook, a respected mental guru in golf circles, captivate his readers with another uplifting journey.
Cook uses his books to get golfers to think about life’s deeper meanings. He has relationships with many of game’s top players. Tom Lehman, a big fan, wrote the Foreword. If his words strike a chord with the game’s elite, surely they can inspire you and me.
“Once again, David Cook’s story telling ability is incredible,” Hal Sutton writes in an endorsement at the front of the book. “He creatively weaves together golf lessons and life lessons from a heavenly perspective. Fear is a common theme in our lives. Johnny’s U.S. Open coaches us to overcome fear’s grip and discover ‘freedom’ in the chaos.”
