Professional golfer Stewart Cink credited Jesus Christ following his most recent PGA Tour win last April 18.
On Sunday, Stewart Cink won the RBC Heritage in Hilton Head, S. C., with a four-round total of 19-under par, four strokes ahead of second-place Harold Varner III. It is his second PGA Tour event win for the year 2021. Stewart’s win placed him to No. 3 from No. 26 in the FedEx Cup standings.
In an interview following the 47-year-old golfer’s victory, he shared that his peace and joy come from his faith in Jesus Christ.
“The thing about me and my family with the peace and joy we experience, it’s not something that we wait for the circumstances to line up like the planets or some signs or tea leaves or something. We install our own peace and joy because of our faith in Jesus Christ, and that is the number one tenant of my life,” Stewart said.
“And it enables me to feel peaceful and joyful even when the golf ball is not agreeing with my clubface and not going in the hole. I don’t seek peace and joy out of golf, because I know I can never depend on it to fully sustain that kind of peace and joy that I’m looking for, and it’s too low of a target.”
Stewart has now 8 PGA Tour wins from 1997 until his most recent win.
“The joy and peace I feel on the golf course – it’s something that stems from something far different than golf, and golf happens to benefit from it,” he said. “But golf is not the end goal for me. I love playing and winning. And having a week like this is just amazing, but the peace and joy that we experience and – it’s available to everybody – is something that you don’t have to wait for the circumstances – the worm to turn, so to speak – it’s there and that’s what we choose to go for.”
