This is the story of a person like any one of us who moves on from sports like cricket and hockey to golf, getting delight from the game; wins the long drive as a beginner and starts practice with just two balls and a club which help him in his accuracy and precision. A must read for the millions of persons interested in golf.
Long ago, during the Cretaceous period (when dinosaurs roamed), I taught golf in a rural region of Quebec, Canada, where no self-respecting pro would waste his/her time. I quite enjoyed the experience, and my students lowered their handicaps, so when my body got to the point where it couldn't execute golf shots no more (and yes, I know about double negatives), I wrote this short book to assist my students after I went over to the other side of the grass (local expression for "died"). I hope it helps your game, but if not ... not my fault! This book basically teaches the game in a dozen lessons, and I use humour (or "humor" if you're American, or you just can't spell) to amuse the reader along the way."
Golf has come a long way from the Highlands of Scotland. It has grown to become a multibillion dollar a year industry and has captivated the interest of people of all ages, all over the world. Also, the concept of using common activities to teach valuable principles for living isn't new. The many parables Jesus Christ taught used metaphors that were common to life. This isn't the first book written to draw analogies between the game of golf and the game of life, but it is unique in that the author has included some of his own stories and experiences. During the time he worked on a beautiful golf course as it was being built, he felt prompted to write down some of the insights and comparisons to life, from a Christian perspective, that God was showing him. This little book is simply meant to be a vehicle to direct heart and mind from earthly things to things above. Jesus is still speaking to the hearts of people today. Read on and see what He is saying to you! About the Author: C. D. Wood has also written the first two volumes of The Jasharian Chronicles (Jashar and Eshek). He has also illustrated a children's book called The Quiggely Quee. This is his first non-fiction book. He and his wife currently live in Shelburne, Ontario.
