Gone Too Far

Romans 1:28 And even as they did not like to retain God in their knowledge, God gave them over to a reprobate mind, to do those things which are not convenient; Lee Trevino was quoted to say, "you can talk to a fade, but a hook won't listen." A fade is a gently curving shot path to…

Left A Bunch Out There

Matthew 9:37 Then saith he unto his disciples, The harvest truly is plenteous, but the labourers are few; Every Saturday when we exit the ninth green and go past a group about to tee off, someone invariably tells the group "we left a bunch of birdies out there for you!" The same can be said for Christians - "we've left…

Full of It

John 15:11 These things have I spoken unto you, that my joy might remain in you, and that your joy might be full. Earthly happiness is easy it is to find if we are compromising enough or have sufficient financing. The world is full of things to make us happy: new cars, new phones, new boats, new…

Making a Splash

Ecclesiastes 9:12 For man also knoweth not his time: as the fishes that are taken in an evil net, and as the birds that are caught in the snare; so are the sons of men snared in an evil time, when it falleth suddenly upon them. The "crisply" struck iron shot is headed directly toward the front…

“A Fire Ate My Homework”

1 Corinthians 3:15 If any man's work shall be burned, he shall suffer loss: but he himself shall be saved; yet so as by fire. Your score is your score. However, we all invariably catch ourselves being that guy with the score followed by the "if I hadn't missed a three footer for birdie on…

Make a Decision

1 Kings 18:21 Elijah came near to all the people and said, "How long will you hesitate between two opinions? If the LORD is God, follow Him; but if Baal, follow him." But the people did not answer him a word. When 75, 128, 142, 169, 188 pops up on our range finders, confusion ensues.…

Trust

Isaiah 12:2 Behold, God is my salvation; I will trust, and will not be afraid; for the Lord God is my strength and my song, and he has become my salvation. We have a golf swing, in fact many golf swings. We have that swing when everything feels great, the swing when body and mind are misaligned and…

Early and Often

Ecclesiastes 12:1 Remember now thy Creator in the days of thy youth, while the evil days come not, nor the years draw nigh, when thou shalt say, I have no pleasure in them; One of the best things I've seen all summer is the number of youth who have joined our home course. They didn't…

Walking In Wisdom

Colossians 4:5 Walk in wisdom toward them that are without, redeeming the time. It never fails a couple of times every summer, a group waiting to tee off on the first hole will ask us how many miles we walked as they see us exit off the ninth green. I always say it is about…

You’re Not My Boss

1 Peter 2:13-14 Submit yourselves to every ordinance of man for the Lord's sake: whether it be to the king, as supreme; Or unto governors, as unto them that are sent by him for the punishment of evildoers, and for the praise of them that do well. Reverence is something our society lacks. Society in…
