Book Description: 

Some of the finest players of the PGA share a year’s worth of brief and personal daily reflections on keeping the faith–both in the high-stakes world of professional sports and in life beyond the greens. Find out how Ben Crane, Lee Janzen, Davis Love III, Stewart Cink, Zach Johnson, Bubba Watson, Webb Simpson, and many more remain spiritually grounded as they prepare for PGA events. Their penetrating insights and practical examples will encourage and inspire you to apply God’s Word to your own life on and off the course. You’ll also hear from some PGA wives as they endeavor to maintain peace and contentment at home while navigating the ups and downs of family life with a top-level competitor.You’ll discover how you too can bring your “A game” to your home, work, and leisure activities–by wrapping them all in your relationship with God.


Athletes have a passion for sports that makes them unique, viewing life through a competitive lens. The desire to compete and their drive for success can mean seeing friends, family, church, and school as distractions. Usually the first to be sacrificed is their spiritual life. This book will help you to stay on track and put God in his rightful place in your life by sharing devotional insights by Christian players on the PGA tour.  There is a devotion for every day of the year that include a Scripture verse, short commentary, and applications on how to draw you into a closer relationship with God.   Makes a great book for golf enthusiasts or other athletes.
