The Hardest Course I've Ever Played: A testimonial of a handicapped child finding victory in life through The Power of the Cross (Paperback)
The Hardest Course I Ever Played is a true story of the author's life, using a theme of playing an extremely difficult golf course in a professional tournament to parallel with the challenges of living life, from birth, with a physical handicap. This journey takes the reader through all the many and different emotions experienced in each storyline while using scripture to provide hope and encouragement needed to overcome any challenges faced. From being born different and living with a physical handicap to overcoming loneliness, depression, bullying, and more, God's word provides the blueprint to conquer them all and be successful.
Although the title is "golf-themed," this golf professional turned inspirational author builds up The Hardest Course I've Ever Played to be the course of life. From dealing with the hardships and pain of living with birth defects, solitude, to a broken family, this unlikely story of success can be enjoyed and related to by golfers and nongolfers alike. The up-and-down emotions experienced by highly skilled golfers navigating a difficult course amid a competitive game of golf are not any different than the rollercoaster of emotions experienced by watching your favorite football team or watching your child grow or play in any sporting event. We also all share commonalities when it comes to navigating life, as we all will experience times of loneliness, depression, good times, and bad. For those navigating through life with a disability, however, there is a different level of challenge to the navigation. Whether you need hope to overcome a physical or mental disability, in a position to share a message of hope with someone facing challenges, or if you are searching for that peace and hope that only Jesus Christ can provide, The Hardest Course I've Ever Played is a true story to draw inspiration from and successfully navigate life.
