Book Excerpt

"Golf is more than a game. It is a reflection of who we are as human beings, how we interact with each other, and a measure of character. Golf is a challenge and the golf course is a good place to check your ego as you pull into the parking lot. No matter how good you think you are, there are literally thousands of people who are better than you.
