Jordan Spieth Is a Christian

In case you are a prepper who has been hanging out in the back country this year--maybe in some cave waiting for the apocalypse to happen so that you don't know what's been going on in the world as of late--the PGA Tour has a new superstar this year. He's 22-year old Jordan Spieth from Dallas, Texas, and he is refreshing. Whether or not he will take over Tiger Woods' previous domination of the world of professional golf remains to be seen. But so far this golfing phenom--who has such a blessed … [Read more...]

Zach Johnson Wins the 2015 British Open

Congratulations Zach Johnson. He won the British Open yesterday in a four-hole aggregate playoff against Marc Leishman and Louis Oosthuizen at the home of golf--the Old Course at St. Andrews, Scotland. It doesn't get any better than that for such a great finish. Thirty-nine year old Zach Johnson thus added this to his other major win--The Masters in 2007. Now Zach has won a total of 12 PGA Tour tournaments, with this British Open win included. He has certainly established himself as one of the … [Read more...]

Bubba Watson Wins the Masters Again

Yesterday, PGA Tour pro golfer Bubba Watson won the Masters again. It was his second Masters victory in the past three years. He is 33 years old, handsome with brown hair, stands six feet, three inches tall, and weighs 180 pounds. So, he is tall and slender for golf. And he seems to have long arms, which gives him a wide arc for hitting long. And, like Phil Mickelson, Bubba plays golf left-handed. Bubba Watson has now won seven tournaments on the PGA Tour in eight years of competition … [Read more...]

The Purpose of Most of these Golf Posts on Mondays through at least 2013

Posts about professional golf are made on this blog on Mondays. Throughout 2013 and perhaps into 2014, these posts will represent brief chapters of a book I'm writing entitled Christ on the PGA TOUR. It will be about the influence Christianity has had especially on the regular PGA TOUR and its Champions Tour (formerly Senior Tour), but perhaps other pro golf tours as well. Most of these posts will be stories about (1) Touring pros who believe in Jesus Christ and (2) incidents that happened to … [Read more...]

The Masters, April 13, 2013

The Masters is again providing excitement. After three rounds, several outstanding players have a reasonable chance to win it tomorrow. Angel Cabrera and Brandt Snedeker are leading at 7 under par. Adam Scott is one back. I think all three of those guys have terrific golf swings. Cabrera has sure proved it, with two majors to his credit. Jason Day was leading in the back nine and fell behind two shots. That's two Aussies among the top five leaders. No Australian has ever won the Masters, yet … [Read more...]
