The Faith Behind The Man

Since entering into a personal companionship with God during my senior year at the University of Florida, it has been my passion to use this wonderful game of golf as a tool to introduce people to the love of God. Through the many metaphors and analogies that golf provides, I love to relate the game of golf to one’s relationship with Jesus.

I have been so blessed to have traveled around the world and taught golf and shared my personal faith in Christ.


Here is a talk I gave about my faith journey at a men’s ministry called Iron Men of God, in January 2017
