Golf in the Kingdom by Michael Murphy (1972)

“A round of golf partakes of the journey, and the journey is one of the central myths and signs of Western man . . . If it is a journey, it is also a round: it always leads back to the place where you started from . . . Golf is always a trip back to the first tee, the more you play the more you realize you are staying where you are. By playing golf you reenact that secret of the journey. You may even get to enjoy it.”

In the spirit of Michael Murphy’s 1972 novel “Golf In The Kingdom,” the original inspiration for the Shivas Irons Society and one of the best selling and most influential golf books of all time.The Shivas Irons Society is a nonprofit dedicated to furthering golf as a mindful pursuit and as a tool for personal growth and development. We inspire, connect and support all who are interested in exploring the transformational aspects of the game.

Our supporters believe that golf is a better, more rewarding game when played in a way that’s intentionally conscious and respectful of its core roots and values – a style of play that Shivas Irons himself would recognize and endorse, and one that is often at odds with much of what the modern game has become.

The following golfers all extol his virtues from tee to green: Arnold Palmer, Tom Watson, Paul Azinger, Phil Mickelson, Judy Rankin, Byron Nelson, and Chi Chi Rodriguez.
