Three faith-based stories on Masters champions

“Just because our plan is easier doesn’t mean anything because His plan is best. We may struggle, but what’s really a struggle when you know you are going to heaven? If I never won a golf tournament or if I never made the PGA Tour and still made it to heaven—that’s the most important thing.”
– Two-time Masters champion Bubba Watson (2012, 2014)

“I’ve said it 100 times and I’ll say it again, I feel like I’m an instrument of God’s work out here. God works through me, and I went with it. I get a little ahead of myself at times, and I go back to what got me here (God). I mean, I leaned on Him and it was great.”
2007 Masters champion Zach Johnson

“My priorities have changed a lot since that day (that I won the Masters) in 1985. No. 1 is God, No. 2 is my family, and No. 3 is my job. It is hard to maintain this order, and sometimes I slip, but I believe and know when you have your priorities right, everything is much easier in life.”
– Two-time Masters champion Bernhard Langer (1985, 1993)
