“A mystical tale from tee to green” New York Times
En route to India in 1956, a young American philosophy student, Michael Murphy (Mason Gamble, Rushmore), takes a detour to the legendary Links of Burningbush. Seeking to enjoy one last round before giving up his beloved game, he is unexpectedly paired with the mysterious, mischievous golf pro Shivas Irons (David O’Hara, Braveheart, The Departed). The wild adventure he shares with his enigmatic teacher over the next 24 hours will change Murphy’s perception of golf and life indelibly.
GOLF IN THE KINGDOM, with original music from musician Dame Evelyn Glennie (Touch the Sound), is adapted from Michael Murphy’s 1972 classic novel, the best-selling work of fiction ever written about the game, deemed “a masterpiece on the mysticism of golf” by the San Francisco Chronicle.
