Zen Disc Golf



51wt5Wc3srL._SX326_BO1,204,203,200_Disc Golf is more than a game, Patrick D. McCormick carefully argues, it can be a window that shows us how we interact with the world. The way we play is the way we live.

This book is about the sport of Disc Golf, but it also is about so much more than throwing a disc at a basket. For the passionate practitioner, Disc Golf becomes a meditation, and practicing not only has the potential to make us better players, but better people as we begin to focus on what we are doing on the course that is working or not working versus what we are doing at home or in the office.

“Zen and the Art of Disc Golf” is about becoming the best players we can be and in turn becoming the best possible version of ourselves through cultivation of attitude, focus, determination, and mental strength. It is about mastering the mind, body, and spirit in such a way that we score better and live better.


After creating a movement in the disc golf world with his cultural classic, Zen & the Art of Disc Golf, author Patrick McCormick returns with Discs & Zen, a more in depth look at how disc golf can be seen as a microcosm of life. New and old fans alike will love McCormick’s clever use of insight and humor in hopes to make you never see disc golf the same way again. Discs & Zen is destined to sit along side Zen & the Art of Disc Golf as a treatise on self-growth and personal potential seen through the eyes of a disc golfer. Discs & Zen also contains a forward written by the one and only Tim Steward of Mind Body Disc, The Zen Disc Golf Podcast, and The Disc Golf Answer Man Podcast.





Author and Disc Golfer, Patrick McCormick, takes the reader on journey of mental and psychological calibration using Disc Golf as a tool to help us find more effective ways of thinking on and off the course in his first two books: “Zen & The Art of Disc Golf” and “Discs & Zen.” Finally, these two treatise on Disc Golf and sports psychology are now available in one complete master volume: “The Complete Zen Disc Golf.” McCormick has also equipped us further with an additional bonus chapter: “I Thought I Might Never Play Again,” recounting his near brush with death and having to relearn to throw from scratch.
