If you are a golf writer and would like me to complete a golf book review for one of your books, please reach out to me and I’d love to talk.
As golfers, we’re all familiar with the successes and failures this great game brings to us. We also know how humbling the game can be when one day we go out and shoot the best score of our lives and the following day shoot the worst.
In a book written by Spencer Stephens, Church of Golf touches on all these emotions all of us as golfers experience when playing this game.
In the book , Donald Gibson goes from being a college football star at University of Maryland to becoming a successful salesman after college. But all these good fortunes would come to an end by his mid-forties, when he finds himself drunk, broke and struggling through life.
Donald is looking for anything that can get him going again and ends up inheriting a fourtune after the aunt who raised him passes away. But in order to get this money, there’s one catch – he must move to a small island in Hawaii and live on the island for at least three years.
After moving to the island he finds golf is treated like a religion within the village and the passion for golf grows for Donald.
I am not going to tell you how the book ends, you’ll have to read it on your own. Just know this personal story of redemption and second chances is something we have all experienced as golfers at some point.
Church of Golf was written by Spencer Stephens and can be found on Amazon. It’s really a great book!
