FROM ONE OF MY MANY FANS…who originally penned this is UNKNOWN
Arnie, Jack and Tiger find themselves together at the throne of God.
God asks Arnie first: “What do you believe?” Arnie thinks long and
hard, looks God in the eye, and says, “I believe in hard work, and in
staying true to family and friends. I believe in giving. I was lucky,
but I always tried to do right by my fans.” God can’t help but see
the essential goodness of Palmer, and offers him a seat to his left.
Then God turns to Nicklaus and says, “What do you believe?” Jack says
“I believe passion, discipline, courage and honor are the
fundamentals Of life.
I, too, have been lucky, but win or lose, I’ve always tried to be a
true sportsman, both on and off the playing fields.'”
God is greatly moved by Jack’s high-pitched eloquence, and he offers
him a seat to his right.
Finally, God turns to Woods: “And you, Tiger, what do you believe?”
Tiger replies, “I believe you’re in my seat.”
