Inhaltsangabe: Advice on golf and life from one of the great golfers of the modern age. If there were a Mount Rushmore of golf, Gary Player's face would be on it. Winner of more than 160 professional tournaments, Player—along with Jack Nicklaus and Arnold Palmer—is one of "The Big Three" who dominated professional golf in the 1960s and 1970s. But Player's influence goes far beyond the golf course. A businessman, a philanthropist, a family man, and an international ambassador of sport, he is respected around the world. In The Golfer's Guide to the Meaning of Life, Player reflects on the most important life lessons golf has taught him. Written for non-golfers, new golfers, and experienced golfers alike, this is not a book about hitting a ball into a cup, but about what a funny old game can teach you about living life with strength, purpose, and joy.

On the Nature of Champions
The most significant common intangible among the truly great is that they "enjoy adversity," They want to be put in fear-inducing situations because they know it is the ultimate test. The true prize is not the trophy. Rather, the prize is the knowledge that at precisely the right moment, one is able to exercise absolute self-control and precise judgment.
We who play the game know that sometimes we get pleasant and unexpected surprises, such as a hole-in-one or a ball that skips off the water and onto dry land. We also know we are equally likely to get a bad break-- a wild bounce of the ball, a sudden gust of wind. The game leaves us no choice but to accept the good with the bad and to move on to the next shot.
The game of golf challenges your mind anew every single day and presents you with the ultimate opponent: yourself. I've always been amazed that people can derive so much satisfaction out of beating others when they have never taken the ultimate test of battling themselves.
On the Role of Mind
The swing is not the thing. The professional tours were and still are loaded with people who can swing the golf club as gracefully as you please. That does not make them great players. The difference between being a good swinger of the club and a great player lies between the ears, in the mind. To keep your mind open to learning new things is to keep progressing forward in life.
