Don't worry about the sabbath day thing Tony. It's only one of the ten
commandments. Just keep the other nine and you'll be fine. Besides in the
church today we've fallen so much in love with the praise of the world and
trying to create good PR for the church that your being a Mormon golfer on TV is
more valued and important than keeping the 4th commandment.
"Great man! I'm inspired by the fact that he has chosen to not play
golf on the Sabbath"What? where'd you get that? The good
news is Tony is playing golf on most Sundays. It's the only way you get
paid. Professional golfers don't get paid for playing on Thur. and
Friday.Point the article missed is Tony was voted 2nd most likeable
player on the tour last year, a testament to his upbringing and character. Truly a credit to his family and himself.
I always appreciate learning about other LDS athletes. Great story.
Great man! I'm inspired by the fact that he has chosen to not play golf on
the sabbath. In the world of professional golf, that is not an easy sacrifice to
make. I'm confident that the Lord will see his faithfulness and bless him
and his family.
I thoroughly enjoyed reading your article on Tony Finau. What a blessing it is
to have such an amazing role model for our children! Thank you Tony and Alayna
for your sacrifices and examples for not only Polynesian youth but for our
Church youth and adults as well! There is no shortage with successful “
LDS Utahns” I always have an admiration for those who become successful
who are also able to uphold a strong belief system and foundation! Who realize
and accept there role as a “role model” for aspiring athletes! May
the Lord continue to bless you and your family with great success! I’m a
new fan! Thank you!
I've had the opportunity to visit with Tony a couple of times. Once on the
golf range while I admired his amazing talent, and once in a restaurant where we
had a brief conversation. Tony is as respectful and courteous as anyone I know
and a great representative of the Church, our State and the Polynesian
culture.Best wishes for a long and successful career.
Always nice to see locals doing well and Tony's story is very
inspirational. What a journey from buying clubs at the D.I. to the PGA Tour!
God bless you Tony
