Golf Between The Ears
The story follows three thousand meditators who moved, literally en masse, to a small farm town in Iowa. They bought a vacant college campus, started a private high school and began to competein their high school golf conference.
The parents lost control of their sons who had been bit by the golf bug. They blamed it on the school’s golf coach, Ed Hipp who struggles to overcome his doubts about himself, his marriage, his vision of bringing yoga golf to competition. Hipp’s 16 year old golf phenomenon, Erik Joven, aself-proclaimed loner, moves through the crippling grip of his inner critic, eventually breaking free from the self-inflicted prison of scorn for his game, his self.
