“This could be read as a handbook to learn or improve one’s golf game, but it is so much more. It is refreshing in the way the author weaves the techniques of the game of golf, humor,and the game of life together. This serves as a metaphor for the Christian walk.” – Ruth Elain, Amazon Review.

Self-publishing and book marketing company ReadersMagnet displayed the religion and spirituality book “Golf Is Not What You Think: A satirical, informative comedy about the greatest individual game ever created” by Philip Ripley Ward at the Los Angeles Times Festival of Books 2023. The literary festival took place on April 22-23, 2023, at the University of Southern California, Los Angeles, USA.

Ward invites readers to join him on his journey as a professional golfer and instructor. However, this is no ordinary golf book. Ward’s profound insights shed light on the deeper layers of the game, illustrating that golf is more than the mere act of hitting a ball into a hole.

Through his own compelling narrative and rich experiences, Ward reveals the complexities and challenges inherent in golf, transcending the boundaries of physical skill. He emphasizes the importance of focus, dedication, and the willingness to let go of overthinking to truly excel in the course.

The author delves into the notion that humans often strive to improve upon the perfect balance and harmony found in nature, inadvertently inviting unnecessary stress and anxiety into their lives.

Instead, Ward suggests that by surrendering to a higher power and embracing relaxation, individuals can find ease in all aspects of their lives, including the game of golf.

While “Golf Is Not What You Think” is a must-read for avid golfers seeking to enhance their skills, it offers much more than that. Its powerful Christian life metaphor gives readers a unique perspective on approaching challenges in their journeys.
