The game of golf links with alchemy and Jesus

Thomas Moore has contributed an Afterword to a book about ritualistic activities associated with alchemical elements: Golf's Three Noble Truths: Lessons on Growth by James L. Ragonnet. Moore says the book, available in March 2007, "has wisdom that will help both your game and your life." Iron is one of the seven metals of alchemy - its symbol represents "Man" and the planet Mars in astrology. About.com introduces neophytes to irons and their uses while answering questions about golf practices for the uninitiated. The game's settings may remind us of sacred sites, as representations of alchemy’s green tablet, but also golf links directly with Jesus through his disciple Andrew.
