Webb Simpson: Golf and the Bible

In 2011, Webb Simpson won his first two PGA tournaments! But it was his mentor, golfer Stewart Cink, who set him on a course he’s never forgotten!

Cink encouraged Simpson to select a Bible verse for each tournament, to consistently think about it. It has become a regular routine for Simpson. At the 2012 US Open in San Francisco he chose a portion from the apostle Paul in 2 Corinthians 12:9: “My grace is sufficient for you, for my power is made perfect in weakness. Therefore I will boast all the more gladly about my weaknesses, so that Christ’s power may rest on me” . . . telling CNN afterward that he felt weak on the back nine and felt he had a huge mountain to climb to beat the field at the US Open.
