South African Open Ernie Els
The opening event of the year in sunny SA, the Tour here is called the ‘Sunshine Tour’ and how appropriate that is …. Temps up in the 30s >>>

Although the 2016 season began in November, there is always the feeling that after the four-week gap over Christmas, this is the real season opener and you sense that from all who are involved …  I came across players, caddies and officials long before I ever reached the course, all of them buzzing …

Bible Study
As you know there are several Believers in SA and our Wednesday morning study had 10 in attendance as we started a study on that great book James which everyone freely participate in … It was good to see players, wives. caddies and father’s of such come along

A Caddy
Now for really Good News; When I was at Leopard Creek I got a hint that something had been happening with one of the caddies, who is a man in his late fifties and only caddies in SA …. I made a point of meeting up with him 1 – 1 and he gave me his story which the short version of is that he was saved over this winter … He, as he puts it, was a real rough diamond and knew from attending the studies and talking to me and others that his life wasn’t right … The wonderful thing was that he went home one day recently and his son was there and simply handed him a bible, saying ‘Dad, you need to read this’ when he opened it God just spoke to him and he found Jesus …

As I say he doesn’t caddy in Europe, but he has a player, who is employing him for the season, so he will be at the European based events and he is raring to go, it is always great to see God taking over in someone’s life and the change with him is so visible … Is that Good News or Good News?

Next Week; Tour stays in Johannesburg for the Joburg Open
