The “We” of Team Spieth

In my day, golf was an individual sport. Not so for Jordan Spieth, the world's number 1 professional golfer. In media interviews, he constantly relates what "we" did not the golf course rather than what "I" did. In doing so, he refers to himself as well as all of the people who assist him regularly in his pursuit winning professional golf championships. That includes his caddie, his swing instructor, family members, etc.This is Masters week. Just minutes from now, Jordan Spieth will begin … [Read more...]

Tony Finau Wins his First PGA Tour Tournament

YEAH FOR TONY FINAU. Today, he won the PGA Tour's Puerto Rico Open, defeating Steve Marino on the third hole in sudden death. Both men were vying for their first PGA Tour victory. Tony was leading by two shots in the back nine today and then lost his lead but hung in there to get in a playoff. Now he's got a two-year exemption for winning. He doesn't have to worry about staying exempt. That's a big load off a player's back.I've been pulling for tall Tony Finau ever since he came on the PGA … [Read more...]

Adam Scott Wins Two in a Row

Australian pro golfer and PGA Tour player Adam Scott just won the WGC-Cadillac Championship at Doral in Miami today by one stroke to make it two wins in a row. He had won the Honda Classic last week in West Pam Beach. This guy is on a roll.Adam Scott comes across as a really nice guy. He's handsome, 35 years old, and recently became a father. Plus, he's got an absolutely terrific golf swing. I almost never see a Tour pro's swing that I can't find something to criticize. Not so with this … [Read more...]

Vaughn Taylor Wins AT&T

This is a good story. Vaughn Taylor shot a 7-under par 65 today for a 17-under 270 total to beat Phil Mickelson by one stroke to win the PGA Tour's AT&T Championship at Pebble Beach Golf Links. Taylor was 447th in World Sony rankings and therefore wasn't even an exempt player on the big Tour. He had been competing on the Web.com Tour and got an alternate spot in this tournament at the last moment. I'd say Taylor was on the brink of considering giving up professional golf. But he says he … [Read more...]

Matsuyama Wins the Greatest Game on Grass

The Phoenix Thunderbirds, sponsor of the¬†Waste Management Phoenix Open on the PGA Tour, call the tournament "the greatest game on grass" partly because of its amazing attendance records. This year they broke their previous record with over 618,000 people in attendance for four days of the tournament. And yesterday's 201,000+ attendance beat the previous one-day attendance set last year on Saturday by about 12,000 people. The no-clouds weather was perfect for both days with little wind and about … [Read more...]

Jordan Spieth Still Dominates

Twenty-two year old pro golf phenomenon Jordan Spieth won the Hyundai Tournament of Champions yesterday at Kapalua, Hawaai. He leapfrogged the stellar field of all of the PGA Tour tournament winners last year, winning by eight whopping strokes. He joined Tiger Woods as the only two players since WWII who have won seven PGA Tour tournaments by the age of twenty-two, yet two of those wins for Spieth were majors. Thus, the pro golf analysts are beginning to compare Jordan Spieth with Tiger Woods. … [Read more...]

Hal Lindsey and Rock’n Rollen Stewart

Hal LindseyHal Lindsey and I come from the same church in Houston, Texas. It is an independent Bible church called Berachah Church. (Berachah is the Hebrew word for "blessing.") In my first year in college, at eighteen years of age, I attended a Campus Crusade for Christ (CCC) retreat for college students. The pastor of my new church, Robert B. Thieme Jr., and Hal Lindsey were the two keynote speakers. (At that time, Lindsey was a traveling speaker for CCC.) When Lindsey spoke that first … [Read more...]
