Bryson DeChambeau: A Cross and a Bible Verse

In 2014 champion golfer Bryson DeChambeau was about ready to give up golf entirely!

He said, “I saw that I’d made my golf score the center of my life.”

He determined from that point on to set a new course citing Colossians 3:23 as his favorite passage from the Bible: “Whatever you do, work heartily, as for the Lord and not for men!”

These days when Bryson DeChambeau drives the ball, it’s not one you’ll likely find in most golf bags!

He says, “I mark my Bridgestone B330S golf ball with a cross and a Bible verse [from Colossians 3:23] for motivation....It also helps my aim!”

In 2015, the 23-year old golfer became only the fifth player, following greats like Jack Nicklaus and Tiger Woods, to win the NCAA and U.S. Amateur championship in the same year!
