Made in Denmark Aalborg August 23-26 2016
Another good week at the very popular Made in Denmark tournament, with has set itself up as a vibrant event with almost 90,000 spectators over the week …
The same suspects attended the study as last week; Jake, Dean, JB and I’m pleased to say Nick came along again …. We stayed with a similar theme as last in dwelling at Christ’s feet, this time going a little further and looking at meditating on His word and thinking on ….
‘Be holy, because I am holy’ 1 Peter 1:16, Leviticus 11:45 & 19:2, with the thought that this might help to concentrate the mind … The question was asked, “How holy is it possible for us to be?” Various answers came in, I think the answer is; as much as we allow the Holy Spirit to take over our lives …. Great to see everyone being very open with prayer request also, more good times …
Some of you may recall the player (a Scottish Professional) [I know there are many of you who prayerfully continue over the years to remember those God has laid on you]
He played on the Challenge Tour seven years ago when I was there for a season, he made it up to the ET where he spent two terms before falling back to the Challenge which is where he is still .. He has played these last two weeks and was telling me that his motivation for CT is waning, he’s only played 5/6 events this year and unless something turns dramatically then he is looking at buy into a fish business, or similar, in and around where he lives … He has a family with two children now and the expense of the second tier tour has drained those earnings from the ET dry … The quality on the CT is only a little below the top echelon (over half the field each week will has tasted main tour golf) and it is monetarily and travel wise a long way behind …. He is one of the many who way outnumber those few who can maintain the standard required to keep their playing rights….
I had a couple of other prolonged conversations with those who were reflecting on life on the, what appears from a distance, glamorous ET but in reality is still a place of uncertain employment for many ….
Next Week; the mountains of Switzerland
