A Golfer's Honor
by Rick Boxx

Golf needed a boost of integrity, when Brian Davis surfaced. According to the Associated Press, Mr. Davis was in a PGA playoff on the 18th hole when it appeared he was headed to victory.
While chipping out of a difficult spot he noticed something move. Rather than ignore the movement he asked to see a replay. After viewing his stroke in slow motion he discovered he had moved a reed. He called a two stroke penalty on himself, and lost his desired PGA victory.
Psalm 15:1-2 answers the question, "Who may live on your holy hill? He whose walk is blameless and who does what is righteous, who speaks the truth from his heart."
Brian Davis reminded the world that integrity is doing the right thing, even when no one else notices.
