The idea behind eTONGGOLF comes from a goal that I had before I started my first year of university – create a catalyst for change. GOLF is what it is but for me, it also means so much more than what most would think. G.O.L.F. stands for two phrases that have helped me become the person I am today – Go On and Live Fiercely AND God Offers Life Forever. eTONGGOLF is so much more than just a medium for me to showcase my golf career, but also a medium for me to entertain, aide and inspire others golf-wise, spiritually and in many other dimensions of life.
Young, old, short, tall, slow, fast. Anyone can play. Anyone can have fun. It's the greatest test of patience and self-control you will ever face, and you are the only one in the driver's seat. It's a great way to socialize and exercise and frankly, you've got to know a little math too. But there's nothing more fascinating than knowing that all of this comes from basically walking around a field of grass in order to hit a small round ball into a tiny cup in as few strokes as possible. I've seen smiles to the moon and back, but also frustration and tears from those (even myself) who play this crazy game. So why do we keep coming back? Who knows. All I can say is that this game is gold. And I'm glad I found it.
Go On and Live Fiercely
There's nothing to lose if you go on with your life and live it fiercely so that you can walk away from each day knowing that you have made the most of every opportunity you have been given. Everyone gets lazy, has flaws and makes mistakes, so perfection is not your goal. But if you can finish each day and say "I did something right, but I can do better tomorrow", then there's no reason not to live fiercely tomorrow.
God Offers Life Forever
When I was at Bridlegrove Day Camp as a youngster, there were these Christian bracelets with acronyms that were extremely popular -- W.W.J.D. (What Would Jesus Do), F.R.O.G. (Fully Reliant On God), P.U.S.H. (Pray Until Something Happens). I loved the idea of them and the message behind each one of them. One day one of my friends said that she found the perfect acronym for me, and I was so excited. You've probably already guessed it, but it was G.O.L.F. -- God Offers Life Forever. Those 4 words have literally guided my life. God is my Saviour and best friend. Through everything, He has been there. Because of Him I can say that my life is in service to His will and I have never felt better.
