This reflective look at golf emphasizes the mental and spiritual elements of the game, "written in an engaging and anecdotal style" (Tom Bedell). Golf is a Zen sport. If you leave the present moment, you will likely feel the immediate karmic consequences like a hammer hitting your thumb. In The Mindful Golfer, Stephen Altschuler helps you nail it right-hard and true and into another level of skill, surrender, and self-awareness. Using the tools of Zen, Altschuler raises the game several notches on the ladder of consciousness. This book discusses the state of golf today, some of its more illustrious players, its glories, and its challenges. The author of five books, including The Mindful Hiker: On the Trail to Find the Path, Altschuler has been a student of Buddhism for four decades and a golfer for five. In this book, he covers some of his own struggles with golf, and some moments of achievement-if only fleeting. "Packed with plenty of examples from the author's own travails and the trials and triumphs of touring pros . . . And for that, Altschuler earns the sound of two hands clapping." -Tom Bedell, The A Position
