Golf saved Drew Millard’s life, and he wants it to save yours, too.

At its core, golf is about developing new skills, honing them through practice, and then contemplating the moment and figuring out which skill fits the circumstances. It’s like therapy, just minus the therapist—plus cooler gear and beer. Golf offers camaraderie, time in nature, and a prism through which to view the world. It can genuinely help people live better and more fulfilling lives.

Author Drew Millard writes from experience: When a doctor prescribed exercise to help with depression, golf gave him the tools to recenter himself. For him, “sucking at golf was a calling,” one that helped him find a sense of balance and rhythm—both on the course and in his own mind.

Brimming with personality, accessibility, and a freewheeling spirit, How Golf Can Save Your Life is a celebration of the sport and an examination of all it offers: the pleasures, benefits, personal growth, and friendships, as well as an appreciation for the land, ourselves, and our time. This book will cause you to fall in love with golf, whether for the first time or all over again.

Drew Millard is a writer from North Carolina. His work has appeared in VICE, GQ, The Nation, The Believer, and the New York Times Sunday Magazine. He lives in Philadelphia and has a handicap that hovers between ten and 14.
