About the Book

Who controls every bounce, gust of wind and subtle break on the golf course? It’s Ti Ming and Tem Po, the mystical golf gods, of course! Ti Ming and Tem Po are the guardians of the game. They know all, see all and control the fate of everything in golf. Those who dishonor or disbelieve in the golf gods do so at their own peril. In the first book from Texas golf writer Mark Button, “Finding Ti Ming & Tem Po, Legend of the golf gods,” believers young and old benefit from their trust in the golf gods. Disguised as small wooden statues, Ti Ming and Tem Po come alive in the dream world and teach their students to love, respect and master the game. All the while, the golf gods impart the life lessons and virtues the game instills, such as confidence, honesty, judgment, respect and perseverance. Their amazing journey touches the lives of many. Among them are Jack, a curious young boy seeking confidence; Anna, a cocky tomboy with a strained relationship with her father; and Tommy, a once-promising amateur golfer whose life is derailed by bad decisions. With the help of Ti Ming and Tem Po, things change dramatically for all who believe. Good fortunes on the golf course await all who believe, including you. If you believe in Ti Ming and Tem Po, anything is possible. Long live the golf gods! Visit for more information.
