Alfred Dunhill Championship Leopard Creek South Africa
23 – 30 November 2015
One season ends, as the European tour did last week, so the last week in November 2016 begins the new Tour season …. And just to complicate matters this event is the last on the SA Sunshine Tour [with which it’s co-sanctioned] for 2015 … Following me? Who says you can’t tell the difference between the seasons these days ….
Anyway, Leopard Creek is a unique event with the presence of all sorts of wildlife within the Kruger National Park where the tournament is held …. I avoided all contact with crocodiles and poisonous snakes >>>>
As ever the Bible Study when in SA was on Wednesday morning at 7am and had ‘only’ 8 in attendance, normally we are well into double figures and the reason for this is that this season has seen a shift of the tournament proceeding Pro-Ams from the set Tuesday, to on occasion a Wednesday and a new innovation that includes a pro-am spread over both days … This has meant that the set Wednesday 7am has become a moveable time which has caused a little bit of juggling, and hasn’t always worked out well .. Do pray that the believers will look a little further ahead and seek to plan out their meetings and get the word of where and when the study is happening out in advance >>>> they are aware they need to do this…
I was able to meet up with a couple of others [player/media man] for 1 to 1 studies, which was great ….
Our old friend “the caddy” is retiring from caddying and he made a ‘B line’ for me to ‘put me right’ once and for all with his Astro-theology …. Although he considers God, Jesus and the bible to be a myth, he used Job chapter 9 and Amos chapter 5 to back up his argument?? And hankered back to his old adage that Egypt and its writings were around 10,000 years before the claimed existence of Adam and Eve … As always when someone is seeking to disprove the fact of God and all that comes with Him, they dig themselves into a hole, and so I asked him if God didn’t create Adam and Eve then who created his Egyptians who existed 10,000 years before the bibles claim … A silence ensued, then his answer … “They came from outer space!”
I informed him there was a name for that, at which he perked up awaiting vindication ….. It’s ‘Science Fiction’
I’ll miss him ….
Next events are;
January 4 to 16 in SA again; Sth African Open in Joburg followed by the Joburg Open which strangely is also in Joburg …
Merry Christmas and Happy New Year to you all …. Keep praying
‘He who made the Pleiades and Orion, who turns midnight into dawn and darkens day into night, who calls for the waters of the sea and pours them out over the face of the land– THE LORD IS HIS NAME.’ Amos 5:8
