Theology meets golf today. On the BBC website, Robbo Robson shares his thoughts
about Zach Johnson, the recent Masters Golf champion, and his thanking God in his prize winning speech.
Robbo first notes: ‘Now I always feel a bit unsettled when sportsmen give the Big Fella the credit. God’s a busy bloke’. However, picking up on theodicy related matters he rightly asks ‘if God gave Zach the gumption to chip it to a foot on the 72nd, was he also responsible for the tree that whacked Rose's drive on the 17th even further off into No Man's Land?’!
His tight logical argument ends:
‘Nah, Mr Johnson, it looked to me like you won ‘cos you practised hard, not ‘cos you prayed hard. As a Boro fan and an Englishman, I can assure you that when it comes to sport, the power of prayer is well overrated’!
OK, maybe I didn't need to make the picture of this golfer quite so big. I think her posture looks technically rather perfect however. Especially the legs.
