Golf in the Kingdom, is adapted from Michael Murphy’s 1972 classic novel. A blend of sport and mysticism, it tells the story of Michael, who in 1956 is bound for an ashram in India when he stops over in Scotland to play one last game on a renowned course named Burningbush. There he encounters Shivas Irons, a pro with a philosophical and metaphysical bent, who profoundly alters the young man’s perceptions of golf and life.
