The U.S. Open
For many years I attended a Presbyterian General Assembly on the annual week of the U.S. Open Golf Tourney. I remember watching Hale Irwin win one year, and this weekend he was watching his son play as a talented amateur.
The traditions of golf include honor and fairplay and the inner test of mental strength that this sport requires, and the young man who won seems to epitomize all that is good about the game.
God must see things a bit this way, as generations follow one another and fathers teach sons how to play, as rules stay the same when fashions and equipment change. The proud father hugs the winning son and says, well done.
I want that from my heavenly Father one day, about the game of life.
