Scandinavian Masters – Bro Hof Stott GC – Stockholm May 31 – June 03, 2016
Well there’s always a week or two in the season when things, travel wise, don’t go smoothly, this was that week >>> I won’t bore you with the details, but three consecutive 4am rises were required and lots of re-arranging , ducking and diving ensued …. But, I’m there and back again ….
This week was a flashback in time to those days on the Challenge tour when no believers were around, as with the loss of Jake Roos and JB Kruger who didn’t retain their playing rights and with no Hennie due to injury and no Alex the caddie who has parted from his player [an all to common occurrence on Tour] it was a let’s see what and who turns up in Stockholm …
You’ll recall our old friend “the caddie” with whom I’ve had several discussions and who has ‘retired’ from the job, well it’s difficult to retire from a way of life and when you have had a successful career as he had with several wins, guess who was back for a two week role with a new upcoming player, Matt Wallace, you got it first time, “the caddie” in full flow …. He made his normal b-line for me and put on the old record again …. But, instead of our usual 10-15 minute rant from him followed by his retreat and considered victory, we had a half hour open chat followed later that day with another half hour talk, he even listened??
One of the things he constantly brings up is the physical proof and as he sees it factual need to ‘see’ things and he insists that the Egyptian world was here before Adam and Eve and can point to graves where they were buried and he said if I could show him Jesus’ grave then he’d believe, I informed him I couldn’t show him Jesus grave, as he isn’t dead, he’s alive!
“He is not here; he has risen! Remember how he told you, while he was still with you in Galilee:” Luke 24:6
As ever we parted on the best and friendliest of terms despite the light years between us …
Next Week; Austrian Open at Atzenbrugg near Vienna
