Zen and the Art of Golf is a sports humor book regarding a round of golf played the Zen way. To play great Zen golf, you need to have good balance, great determination and sublime faith in your own ability. Of course you should also always keep your head down and your eye on the ball. The occurrences and performances indicated in the story contain certain truths. The events portrayed, however are semi-factual. Because the intent is more so to entertain rather than enlighten, any enlightenment that is obtained, while it may be viable, in truth is purely coincidental.
