Flatts Golf With Tim Tebow

| April 28, 2012

A few months ago, Rascal Flatts met NFL Quarterback Tim Tebow.  At the time, Tim was with the Denver Broncos, and the band was performing a concert in the Mile High City.  Two weeks ago, the group reunited with the newest member of the New York Jets at his annual Tim Tebow Charity Golf Tournament at TPC Sawgrass in Jacksonville Florida.  Among the other participants was new Masters Champion Bubba Watson.  They talked about it with Lon Helton on Country Countdown USA: “He’s a heck of a nice guy.  He didn’t wear his green jacket, I was surprised.  He came in with a plaid shirt and sleeves rolled up.  I’d have worn that championship jacket everywhere.  He played in the group right behind us.  I’d just watch him play.  It was unbelievable.  He committed to doing the event before he won the Masters and kept the commitment.”

Who else was there? “Fred Durst from Limp Bizkit, Prime Time was there, a bunch of football players. Christian Ponder from the Minnesota Vikings.  He’s a Florida State alum, so he got a lot of kidding that night, because there was a bunch of Gators in the house.  Tim said, ‘One of our best players, Christian Ponder, thanks for throwing the interceptions, we couldn’t have done it without you!”

So what are your thoughts about Tim Tebow? “He’s just 24 , and he has hospitals all over for kids.  To be such a great spirit.  He’s a man of God that doesn’t waver.  He’s used his platform for the greatest things.  He spends so much time with kids, his time is to serve, that’s what he feels he needs to do.  His whole speech that night was making moments.  Not in our lives, but make a moment in someone else’s life.”
