Golf in the Kingdom
The bestselling classic novel about an American traveler’s spiritual journey into the world of golf When Michael Murphy first meets golf pro Shivas Irons on one of the most beautiful courses in Scotland, he doesn’t know that his life—and his golf game—will change forever. But with the first swing of the Scotsman’s club Murphy realizes he is in for a most extraordinary day.

This story delves into the transformative power of golf and reveals a unique and unforgettable approach to the game.

Proof that you can never go back. I read this over twenty years ago, and thought it was brilliant, "it changed my life", etc. This time round, I found it trite and badly written. Ah well, I guess reading has as much to do with the reader as with the book. Read full review

This book offers a view of golf in a more philosophical and even mystical light. This 25th-anniversary edition includes additional reflections by Murphy. Though golf is definitely a fanatic's game, half of this is written for laughs. Read full review
