Golfers the world over know their game is a microcosm of life. Both golf and life require patience and courage, persistence and honesty, focus and self-belief. They present similar challenges, involve the weighing up of risk and the making of hard decisions. In both golf and life, we must learn to deal with triumph and disaster. Golf teaches us about ego and resilience. It implores us to meet challenges and put disappointments into perspective. Crucially, we realise we should not take the game - or life - too seriously. The Spirit of Golf and How It Applies to Life delves into the rich folklore of the world's greatest game, and recounts inspirational life stories from courses around the world.

MEDIA REVIEWS
"The real charm and effectiveness of this book is in the sparse, elegant prose that recalls some of the great moments of the game and casts them in a refreshing new light. It's very well-written, and easily dipped into given its vignette style." --Inside Sport
"In his latest book, Allen delves into golf's spirit and its application in life, citing inspirational life stories from golf courses the world over and its participants." --Australian Golf Digest
"A fantastic read that features incredibly detailed research interwoven with Allen's well-crafted words that leave you without any doubt he knows his subject and has a passion for the game." --Golf Australia
"Allen writes in an easy style and the result is great stories worthy of retelling at the 19th hole." --Sydney Morning Herald
