Aberdeen Asset Management Scottish Open – July 2017

The Scottish Open – Dundonald Links Irvine July 11 – 13

The ‘Rolex Series’ moves onto its third event in a row [France, Irish >>] on the West coast of Scotland with another €7 million prize fund, rich pickings these three weeks, to be followed by the €10 million Open next week …. Money, money, money – lots of TV coverage and the ‘big guns’ out in force from the USA and all around the world …

These are the times when keeping it simple shines through and as we often look to do when on mainland Britain we had one of our Logos ‘Roadshows’ this week in the host town for the tournament, Irvine …

Fullarton Parish Church, all recently renovated and looking fresh and bright, put on an evening where we had two South African pros on the platform and the evening was hosted by Neil Urquhart, the minister, and I did the MC-ing. Both players enjoyed the chance to speak openly of their faith.

The Q&A time of the evening is always good, and people were able to ask ‘those’ questions of Christians on Tour that they’ve been bursting to know … I have to say these occasions are well received every time we do them and on this occasion there may well be a follow up from Bunkered magazine as Christian journalist, Kenny Crawford, was there taking notes …. Good times!!

Next Week; it’s THE Open – those outside of Britain find it amusing that with all the Open tournaments there are, there’s only one alluded to as THE Open!!

As you know the big tournaments are not Logos friendly as a rule, but who knows what God will surprise us with – I am doing an evening at Leyland GC [home club of Keith Macintosh a past Logos board member] on the chaplaincy role on the tour and doubtless I’ll get too meet up with a few others whom God brings along my path …

‘The path of the righteous is like the first gleam of dawn, shining ever brighter till the full light of day.’     Proverbs 4:18
