PGA: Webb Simpson

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 and to constantly think about it. It has become a regular routine for Simpson.

At the 2012 U.S. Open in San Francisco, he chose a portion by 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 U.S. Open.
