Tour Stars on Golf and God

With the U.S. Open this week, I thought you might find this video from CNN interesting. It includes 2012 U.S.Open Champion, Webb Simpson, 2009 British Open Champion, Stewart Cink, and fellow PGA Tour players Keven Streelman, Ben Crane, and Aaron Baddeley speak about how their faith in Christ impacts them as professional golfers.

I especially like what Ben Crane said – “It is not like a Jedi mind trick that if I act like ‘Hey this (my golf game) is for God.’ then I will play better, but in actuality if my heart is right I am more at peace and life certainly works better from there.”

He makes it clear that what is important is the status of my heart in answer to the question – “Am I here to bring glory to me or to God?”
