About this title

Synopsis:

While on his way to India, Michael Murphy, founder of the Esalen Institute, stopped in Scotland to play a round of golf at the famous Burningbush course. There he met Shivas Irons, golf pro and mystic, and in a single day and night he had his life -- and his game -- transformed. In the two decades since it was first published, Golf in the Kingdom has been recognized as a classic on the deeper mysteries of golf, a gospel for those who suspect, or know, that golf is more than a mere pastime.

Review:

Esalen Institute founder Michael Murphy's divine meditation on the royal and ancient game defied categorization when it was first published in 1972, and it still does. Instantly hailed as a classic, it is part novel, part philosophy, part myth, part mysticism, part enchantment, part golf instructional, and is altogether unique. This confluence of sports and the supernatural looks at both life and golf from the inside out. The book's central character is a wily Scotsman named Shivas Irons, a golf professional by vocation, and a shaman by design, who Murphy, as participant in his own novel, meets on the links of Burningbush, in 1956 Fife. The story of their round of golf together culminates in a wild night of whiskey and wisdom where their golf quite literally takes on a metaphysical glow as Shivas explains how the swing reflects the soul. It alters not only Murphy's game, it also radically alters his mind and inner vision--and it's truly unforgettable. For a golfer, Golf in the Kingdom is as essential as a set of clubs.
