This weekend, Latter-day Saint pro golfer Tony Finau, who is currently the No. 14 golfer in the world, will play in the PGA Championship. But it was something Finau said in response to a seemingly generic question that caught the attention of ESPN College Gameday’s Kirk Herbstreit on Wednesday. “Love this answer,” the well-known sports analyst said. 

The question came from another sports reporter, Marty Smith. 

“What your purpose?” 

The answer?  

“It’s to be a light in the world. It’s to have so much joy emanating from me, coming out of me, that everyone in my midst can’t help but feel it,” Finau replied.
