Books Review: Seven Days in Utopia, Golf’s Sacred Journey and The Sequel

18 Feb

We saw the movie.  I knew I needed to read the book, bonus found the sequel.

The movie starring Robert DuVall and Lucas Black is warm, genuine and inspiring.  In my youth, I took golf lessons and followed tournament play.  As an adult, I played in a golf league after work.  I’m fond of movies about baseball…Field of Dreams, A League of Their Own, The Natural…  Frankly, it never occurred to me that there were great stories and lessons to be told about golf.  (I don’t count Caddy Shack.)

Seven Days in Utopia narrative differs between the movie and the book.  (Both are equally time well spent.)  The book has more details on honing technical golf skills.  There is an opportunity loss, if practice is dominated by driving range parameters.   Improving skills means practicing with up and downhill lies, behind trees, bare ground, deep grass…and more…

What is extraordinary about the lessons?  The originality, experiential and spiritual nature of the situations.  Watch or read for yourself.

Don’t let the advice to “follow rules” deter you from admiring the photos of these dream closets.  Sam Ferris does us a service providing basic measurements for clothing (folded and hanging).
