Golf’s Three Noble Truths: The Fine Art of Playing Awake is a book of brief essays, in which the author focuses on total growth. Few golfers ever achieve their full potential, or ultimately attain peace of mind, he says, despite expending enormous amounts of energy, time, and money. Ragonnet has applied the classic teachings of the Buddha to the game and presents three core truths to explore and master: awareness, balance, and unity. Each chapter guides the reader to become not only the best golfer but also the best person possible.
James Ragonnet, Ph.D. ’81, is a professor of English and former assistant coach for men’s varsity golf at Springfield College.
