Bernhard Langer in Tyler
Bernhard Langer is a noted golf ball-thumper and Bible-thumper. He's also a noted nice guy. This article in the Tyler newspaper tells the story of Langer passing through town to attend a Christian retreat, getting into a conversation in a restaurant, then taking an interest in a young boy struggling with his golf game. Athletes who constantly invoke God, as if the Big Guy is sitting up there in the sky taking sides in some silly athletic contest, are one of my pet peeves. But there's no doubting Langer's sincerity, or his generosity.
