Thoughts And Prayers For Van.

Some of you may know Dr. Lyman "Van" Slyke from past Society events.  If not, let us introduce you to a pillar of the Society, someone whose efforts well pre-date the 1992 birth of The Shivas Irons Society.  

In addition to being a close and personal friend to SIS Founder Steve Cohen, Van was an early advocate and supporter of Steve's vision that golf could be a vehicle for an examined life, a place where one could learn about him/herself as learner, golfer and human being.  

Van is a charter and advisory board member, has been a board member, a Society writer and a driving creative force behind the creation of The Journal of the Shivas Irons Society.   He is a passionate learner, lover of all aspects of the game, and even a club-fitting hobbyist.  He is a distinguished teacher, author and historian of Modern China at Stanford University, someone who has generously shared his knowledge on Society trips to destinations such as Bhutan.

Above all, Van is a friend who is currently facing health challenges so we ask that you keep him in your thoughts and prayers.

In gowf ye see the essence of what the world itself demands.
