Madeira Island Open Santo Serra GC Funchal March 17-21

The local Madeira cake is great, the weather not so … Yet again delays abounded at Santo Serra GC, but we got there eventually, mind you it gave us a lot of time to feast on the local Madeira cake that’s much better than our version …

This is a co-sanctioned event which means that half the field is from the Challenge Tour (Division 2) and the other half from the main tour, but in reality only those on the main tour who “need” to take part do so as this is not a big money tournament.

Madeira always gives the chance to meet many players that I have come across in the last few years and who have dropped off the big tour and are looking to make their way back; the competition is such in Europe that your level of golf has to be maintained with little or no room for a dip in form …

Spiritually, sadly there was little to report although with the delays there was plenty sitting and waiting around and I had the opportunity to remind one of the caddies, of the occasion when he came up to me at 6am on the range at the Italian Open in Turin, still pitch black, showed me a photo on his phone he had taken of Philippians 4:6-7 and he asked has how can you do this?  He still hasn’t got there yet.

I know many of you keep a list of players etc I have mentioned over the years and although I don’t see a lot of these players on the tour now, still remember them before God, as I came across a number this week that stopped for a chat…. You never know what God is doing …

Next week it’s Morocco where hopefully the weather will be a lot better, although their cake won’t be as good as Madeira’s …
