Seven Days in Utopia

Golf's Sacred Journey


Golfers and non-golfers alike will be moved by the powerful transformation that takes place in Seven Days in Utopia: Golf's Sacred Journey.


This book is about influence. The story is based on thousands of athletes Dr. Cook has counseled, and the great mentors and teachers from whom he has learned, told through the lives of two characters—a rancher with a passion for teaching truth and a young golf professional at the end of his rope. They represent each of us in the various stages of growth. In life we must be willing to coach and be coached, for either one alone will leave us empty.


Dr. Cook discusses "See it, feel it, trust it" and Seven Days In Utopia on the 700 Club

Read it. Devour it. Keep it as a reference book. You’ll be glad you did. Golf’s Sacred Journey is a remarkable and encouraging story with an entirely different approach on how to succeed in your golf game.
— Zig Ziglar, leading motivational expert and bestselling author
This book is full of wisdom that will enhance your game and I believe it just may change your life.
— David Robinson, NBA MVP, 1992 Olympic Gold Medalist, Two Time World Champion

Author David L. Cook's best-selling novel Seven Days in Utopia: Golf's Sacred Journey comes to the big screen in this inspirational sports drama starring Lucas Black and Robert Duvall. Luke Chisolm (Black) has the drive to become a professional golfer. Just when he's on the verge of going pro, however, he buckles under the pressure. In the aftermath of that crushing disappointment, Luke vanishes from the spotlight, uncertain if he'll ever return to the game again. Luke is driving through Texas when he crashes his car in the town of Utopia, and strikes up a friendship with Johnny Crawford (Duvall), a rancher who knows more about the game of golf than the troubled young visitor realizes. Now, the more time Luke spends with Johnny, the more he begins to see life from a new perspective -- a perspective that will not only help Luke to make sense of where he's been in life, but where he's headed as well. Oscar winner Melissa Leo and True Blood's Deborah Ann Woll co-star. [Synopsis by Jason Buchanan for Rovi, as seen on Fandango.]
