Golfing for God
April 10, 2007
Zach Johnson on winning the Masters:
I don’t even know what I shot, but I know that I had a lot of people giving me some good words of wisdom over the last week. My coaches clearly, our Tour chaplain, and being Easter Sunday, I felt like there was certainly another power that was walking with me and guiding me . . . Today, the only thing different was the fact that it was Easter. I felt like regardless of what happened today, my responsibility was to glorify God and hopefully He thinks I did.
Good to know that Mr. God Almighty, Esq., maker of the heavens and the earth, ruler of the cosmos and master of the universe, was making sure Zach Johnson didn’t land in the rough.
You notice how often it is that these protestations of faith and humility come off as insufferably arrogant and egotistical? What’s he going to call his autobiography — God Is My Caddy?
