For centuries, the game of golf has captivated everyone from the poor working class to the upper crust of society. There is something enigmatic about the game that sets it apart from all other sports. Rife with strict rules on etiquette, yet often played in solitude, golf truly tests the body, mind and spirit. In this collection of 18 short stories, The Guru of Golf celebrates perhaps one of the most widely popular of athletic pursuits. Thomas Moore shows us how golf can be a perfect metaphor for life itself - endlessly mysterious, joyful and fascinating; while at times frustrating, infuriating and unbearable. From the tee to the green, Moore intertwines modern and classical tales that illustrate the challenges players face-both on and off the course. Humorous and insightful, The Guru of Golf captures the range of emotions associated with its players' ardent determination; searches for meaning behind quiet moments; and reveals the struggles that try our patience, as well as the victories that make the game - and life - worthwhile.
