KLM Dutch Open Spijk GC Rotterdam Netherlands Sept 6 – 8, 2016
I informed you last week that the SAs would be gone for the rest of the season, but what do I know … Out of the blue, Dean Burmeister received an invite, he was back in SA, but made his way to Holland with his dad [believer] on the bag, then Jake Roos who was 28th reserve at the weekend and ready to go home, decided to hang on and lo and behold got in at the last minute on the first day as the current Dutch Open champion, Thomas Pieters, had to withdraw … Had JB Kruger hung around he’d have got a game too, but he’d returned to SA to play in a Sunshine Tour tournament at his home course ….
We had a super little study on the porch of the Players Lounge, and as well as those mentioned above, Mark came along … You’ll be well aware of the journey with Mark and this was the first time he’s dipped his toe in the water of a study, so that was terrific … An interesting sideline is that because the area we met in was so busy a couple of caddies and players mentioned to me the next day that they were nearly in the bible study by mistake, and proceeded to chat about God and the bible, so I shall keep them in mind for further ‘impromptu discussions??’
I managed to spend a couple of hours with Mark on the Wednesday evening also and he recognises there is clearly something missing in life, as yet he doesn’t see who, more of a what, do keep on bringing him before God ….
Been a good few weeks in Europe with the SAs and studies each week … Next week I see Ashun Wu is returning and Nick will be on duty with the Courtesy Cars, so do ask God for openings there ….
