Patrick McCormick has written a short but deep look into playing disc golf, practicing a Zen mindset, and tapping into the potential to become the best possible “you.” McCormick’s words are like syrup, they hold such thick value that sometimes it takes a little while to digest them fully, but when those words do finally sink in, it is truly an enlightenment. Suddenly, everything makes sense and things that may have been cloudy before are now perfectly clear…
Although I am a relatively new disc golfer, I come from a background of playing regular golf for most of my life and struggling with the mental side of playing at a competitive level. In fact, several years ago I played regular golf competitively in college in Southern California, but became very frustrated, depressed, and ultimately burnt out from my tireless efforts to elevate my game to the next level. I WISH I would have had McCormick’s book at that stage of my life. Nevertheless, I’m very glad I have this book now. I have read it cover to cover several times, and always keep it close by if I feel the need to refresh myself before I go play, or even go take on the day.
Reading “Zen and the Art of Disc Golf” has made me appreciate the time, effort, skills, and enjoyment that comes from playing and participating in all the sports I play, and even my occupation as a middle school mathematics teacher. I now have a renewed interest in getting the absolute most enjoyment I can from my work and leisure time activities, challenging myself to constantly improve my game and myself, and even enter competitive tournaments again.
Thanks Patrick. Your book is truly awesome and profound!
