I was raised in a Christian environment. My mother and father were Christians, and they went to church regularly, and let me go regularly, although sometimes as a kid I guess you don't want to go. I always went. We went Sunday morning and Sunday night and did all of the stuff. It was a very good family environment.
Even so, I didn't really come to be a Christian until a long time after that. I thought that I was; I had gone down front and joined the church when I was 12 but it wasn't until quite a bit later in life – in 1967, and I was born in 1937 – that I became a Christian.
I did that by going to a Tour Bible study with my wife Judy, and my brother Rik and his wife, Cindy. Dave Regan was speaking that night. He explained what you had *to do to become a Christian, and that we were all sinners and that Jesus died on the cross for our sins. At that point, I realized that I had not accepted Christ. And that very night I admitted that I was a sinner, and I invited Him into my life.
It was an instant change. One of the things I had had trouble with was bad language. I cussed – a lot. After the Bible study, I was playing in the Houston Open. I'd barely qualified to get in. This Bible study was on Wednesday night. And so I went out and played on Thursday. I was playing along, and I had some good holes and some bad holes. After about ten or twelve holes, I realized that something was missing. I hadn't said a cuss word all day! Since that time – and we all slip from time to time – the Lord has taken that bad language away from me. That was quite an experience in my life.
