Now I believe God slowed down the ball in time but everyone else did not see the ball slow down thus its likely was me and the ball. Now it would be like you could walk while everyone else was like not moving or something like that too them time is moving forward but to me in that instant time seemed to stand near still, etc...

That's just adrenaline kicking in during the emergency reaction.

Ya, but the initial avoidance of the golf ball was mediated by your reflex arc (which bypasses directed thought and moves you automatically).

You move fast and get a fright at which point adrenaline kicks in and gives you (among other things):

'[a]feeling as though time has slowed down'

'difficulty in thinking clearly'

You don't think it could be your recall of the event that led you to perceive time as being 'slowed down' rather than your god taking a direct hand in altering the speed in which you travelled through time?
