Toby Mac and PGA Golf?

When you think of Pro Golf, you might picture silent applause, goofy pants & pristine grass fields...now, add in the thought of Toby Mac swinging a 9 iron!

Excited to report that Toby got an invite to play in the PGA AT&T Pebble Beach National Pro-Am Golf Tournament this February.  Check out the video he made for you!

 

Other celebrities on the list: New England Patriots quarter back Tom Brady, actor Josh Duhamel, actor Bill Murray, and comedian Ray Romano.

I wonder if we could get Toby Mac to wear these?!

Dealing and using meth daily to loosing custody of my kids to wanting to die! 2 felony convictions later, God revealed Himself to me as I cried cursed and screamed out to Him...today I am chosen and dearly loved...I just bought my 1st house at the age of 36 and I have been clean over 7 years...PRAISE HIS NAME! I have joint custody of my girls and I work as a recovery coach to others who are walking in my old shoes....He is faithful!"
