West of Scotland Golfers Alliance – Dundonald – 16/10
The start of the Alliance fixtures signal the final months of the golfing season and it was nice to return to Dundonald where we held our very successful Pro-Am this year. After a lengthy delay on the M77 due to an overturned truck, I managed to arrive just in time, and Margaret was kind enough to rearrange the times so that nobody had to rush. A few of us got caught with the delays so this helped the running order.
I was asked to play with one of my fellow professionals, who I have often been paired with this year. We joked that we never really saw each other for 15 years and now it feels as though we see each other every other week. He also played in the Logos Pro-Am as one of the team professionals so it was good to get his feedback.
As we got started, he commented that he really enjoyed the Pro-Am and thought it went really well. He knows about the vision of having a series of events in years to come and totally gets the idea of faith.
He mentioned about finding our own truth, which means being honest about where we are in our life so that we can begin to do something about it. I have to say that the golf was secondary as we both chatted non-stop all the way round and I know it was no accident that I ended up playing with him again. He shared a joke with me that says quite a lot about how many of us see God and you may have heard it but I’ll share it anyway.
‘During a flood a man is floating in the water and he is shouting to God to save him. Five minutes later a small boat sails by, but the man but he says he’ll wait because God is going to save him. Ten minutes later a larger yacht sails by, but the man declines the help as God will save him. As the waters get higher a helicopter stops over him to pick him up, but the man is adamant God will save him. The man drowns.
As the man stands before God after death he questions why God did not save him to which God tells the man that he tried by sending two boats and a helicopter, what else was he expecting?’
The other pro and I both agreed that too often we expect God to do all the work and forget that He guides us and makes a way for us. We have our part to play and he does not just fix everything by snapping his fingers.
A really good day and some great conversation that I know will continue in our future meetings. I look forward to speaking with him again and know he is enthusiastic about supporting our future events.
We had a beautiful day at Dundonald Links for our first Logos Golf Ministries Pro-Am and I am glad to say that we had a full compliment of players and professionals present. I knew this was going to be a special day and I was not disappointed.
On arrival I was pleased to see our PGA official Glen had everything organised and what a difference that makes. There was a buzz about the lounge as the professionals and each team arrived and I could feel a real peace about the day. It was great to welcome each team plus my pro colleagues and I thanked all of them for supporting the event.
It was a real blessing to have our guest speaker, Luther Blacklock, conduct a golf clinic on the practice ground for everyone and this went down very well with all players. Luther has the qualification of being a Master Professional and is very well known is golfing circles for his coaching and reputation so this added even more to the event. After receiving some simple but effective tips, we all made our way to each starting hole and teed off promptly at 11am.
I had the privilege of playing with the Christians in Sport team of Greg, Jack & Luke and we all got on right away. Although I did not play my best golf individually we played very well as a team and all of us made some great scores on certain holes to keep us in with a shout of winning.
The thing I was most pleased about was how I was able to speak with each of the lads about my role over the past years and my own personal story of how I became a Christian. All of them were very supportive of what we are doing in Scotland and it was great to be able to answer so many questions about Logos Golf Ministries.
I must share that on our final three holes we had a great finish of nett birdie, birdie, nett eagle by Luke, myself and Greg. Jack was desperate to win a prize so we tried our best to get to double figures under par, and just managed that with Greg’s fantastic birdie nett eagle on the final hole.
We did manage to finish tied for third but missed out on the last prize due to the other team having a better inward half. Sorry Jack, but at least you hit it past Greg on the last hole after challenging him to the longest drive. I’ve not seen a ball as far down that hole for a while or a young man so smug! Many thanks for a very enjoyable round guys and hopefully we can do it again soon.
As everyone came off the course to have our dinner the sun shone brightly in the sky and I knew something special was going to happen before the end of the day. After a fantastic dinner we all got the opportunity to hear the testimony of Luther Blacklock and I have to say I was not quite prepared for how emotional it made me feel.
We had a mix of half Christians and non-Christians and I know God spoke to some of them as I felt he was even speaking to me through it. I was greatly encouraged and honoured to be part of this work and I know some of my fellow pros will have more to talk about the next time I see them.
I look forward to probably some more in depth conversations than we have had before and I ask that you pray for these situations. Can’t wait for the Logos Golf Ministries Pro-Am 2018 and beyond.
Please pray for future events and the conversations that lie ahead.
Lacoste Ladies Open de France – Golf de Chantaco – October 5th – 8th 2017
Travelling to Biarritz with Ryanair was smooth with no cancellations thank goodness but after arriving at the golf course I was told to be careful about walking around as it was very wet after three weeks of rain. The course was so wet that they had been unable to cut the fairways so it was preferred lies through the green.
My presence again initiated conversations with players, caddies and family and friends of players to why I was attending the tournament. I had lunch with a French player and her dad – it was a challenge to explain my purpose for attending the tournament in French! Luckily I used my phone translation app and showed him the buy Tastylia Oral Strip online without prescription, but conversation was difficult as my French is poor.
I had dinner with two other players which was fun and then one of them and I had a one on one Bible study looking at Philippians 4 v 1-9. I did invite the other player to join us but she chose to pass on the offer.
It was an encouraging time and we talked about standing firm in the Lord as it is so easy to get side tracked with pursuing all sorts of other things. Questions followed after some discussion – who is your joy and crown? Who and what have you invested in? Paul challenged us both to pursue people and God’s word in this passage.
Paul’s word of do not be anxious about anything caught our attention and provoked the question – is worry a sin? When we worry are we saying that God cannot take care of us? Are our problems bigger than his promises? No, we should choose to pray instead of being anxious and concentrate on verse 8 through 9 – “whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable – if anything is excellent or praiseworthy – think about such things”.
We prayed about what we had learnt in the study, the tour and each other that we would be doers and not just hearers of the word plus that others on tour would be drawn to the Christian faith. I gave her some material to read from Ken Boa about our identity in Christ. I am following up with her via Skype before she competes at the 2nd stage of LPGA qualifying school.
Cris Stevens will also catch up with both her and another Christian player at the LPGA Tour School from 19th -22nd October.
The Andalucia Costa Del Sol Open De Espana Femenino – Real Club de Golf Guadalmina – 21st – 24th September 2017
This week I travelled to Spain representing Logos Golf Ministries to support the Christians on the Ladies European Tour.
Time was spent connecting with players, caddies, tour staff, families and friends of players. Many conversations were started on the grounds of why I was at the tournament, which gave me the opportunity to explain my presence on the tour– interesting conversations followed about faith and belief in God after my role was explained.
A parent of a player who I had played with in May in a golf event came and spoke to me as he was caddying for his other daughter in Spain. He had a heavy heart as the daughter who I had played with had been involved in a car crash and suffered a stroke. She is only 19 years old and a very good golfer. He showed me all the photos of her in hospital learning to walk again and I was there just to listen and share his grief.
He asked me why I was in Spain so I explained and asked if it was ok that I prayed for and he said please do. I also offered to go and visit her but he had to go to the tee quickly so we could not exchange contact details.
I was able to connect with two Christian players and we had a Bible study on the Friday evening together. We studied from a book called The Life of Jesus focusing on the chapter called “the story that can change your life.” We looked at the four gospels but particularly at John 20:30-31 and the verses that begin ”these things are written so that you can believe that Jesus is the Messiah, the Son of God, then by believing, you can have life through his name”.
It was an encouraging time of fellowship as we prayed for each other to be bold in sharing our faith to those on tour. We prayed that others would be interested in coming to the Bible studies and that God would go before us in raising others up for Christ. We also prayed for one of the player’s families as none of them believe in God but have been to church with her in America.
It was a really encouraging time as both players are strong believers. One is a fairly new believer who is particularly on fire for God. I encouraged them to keep praying for the tour and for us all to stand firm in our faith going forward.
I had some more time watching them both play and encouraging them with their golf and faith. I got the opportunity to sit down with the other Christian player and have some one on one time with her. I prayed with her and gave her some scriptures to meditate on to assist her in understanding fully her identity in Christ rather than having her identity in her sports performance.
The Italian Open [Rolex Series] at Golf Club Milano Monza – October 10 – 12
We had three glorious autumn sun-filled days in Milan, which then continued throughout the tournament, as the Rolex series ticked along. Another €7 million purse this week – with the crowds flocking out to support their growing band of Italian stars, along with the hype of the build up to Italy’s hosting of the Ryder Cup 2022.
We had a super little get together this week with two players and a member of staff. Our study dwelt on John 15:1-17 and I simply asked them to read the passage slowly and share what struck them, it’s such a passage that you can’t read it with something striking you.
One picked out verse 16 – ‘I chose you’. He had no family background, no peers who played golf, nothing, and yet here he was and fully aware God had done this and brought him from nowhere to where he is today.
Another picked out verse 5 – ‘apart from me you can do nothing’. He felt that so much of golf was down to himself, but he was moved that ultimately no matter how much he trains, practices etc, if all is not given to Jesus, then it’ll come to nothing.
This was the final event of my season and we now move on to seek God for the next Logos person … These chats/interviews will take place in January and the intention is that I shall accompany that person to some events next season, as we know the disciples went out ‘ .. two by two ..’ Mark 6:7
I’ll keep you posted with developments, but I am very thankful for all prayers, support and the encouragements I’ve received from so many of you over these last eight seasons on the ET.
‘I pray that you may be active in sharing your faith, so that you will have a full understanding of every good thing we have in Christ. Your love has given me great joy and encouragement, because you, brother, have refreshed the hearts of the saints.’

Dunhill Links Championship – St Andrews et al – October 02 – 04
Amazingly, considering this event is always played in the autumn, the weather has always been, relatively speaking [for Scotland], very good. This time around the same conditions prevailed and St Andrews town was its usual bustling self with golfers, students and the never ending conveyor of photo happy tourists.
With three courses used, I have learned to stick to St Andrews and let everyone come to me, rather than wander off to Carnoustie [25 miles away, where I do the SMS survey on Thursdays] or Kingsbarns [10 miles the other way] and so we arranged to get together for a Bible study at the Links clubhouse in the ‘auld toon’
It was good to meet up with some South Africans who are over for this event. As it is sponsored by Dunhill, whose owner is a South African, there are several invites for his Ain’ folk. Alongside the usual suspects, we also had a Christian journalist and another player who was doing some caddying work this week
I also have the joy each year at the Dunhill of being ‘put up’ by the Glasgows, Lindsay and Anne, and many thanks to them for their hospitality over the last eight years. Lindsay had played in the recent Logos Golf Ministries Pro-Am which was the culmination of a vision given by God to our Scottish ambassador, Vincent Brown, who uses LGM as his attachment when playing in regional tournaments, that Logos would have an event on the Scottish PGA Region schedule, and so it was. Great!
Next Week is the last of the vaunted Rolex Series with the Italian Open in Milan.

The British Masters – Close House GC Newcastle September 26 – 28
This is an increasingly popular event which is ‘supported’ by Sky Sports and attracts all the top European players and where Sky have day long coverage from Wednesday [Pro Am with celebrities aplenty] to Sunday. This year it was hosted by Lee Westwood with only one Ryder Cup player not on show, so the crowds were large and Close House was abuzz.
I was looking to meet up with two players and a Christian friend from within the Tour staff. As it turned out we weren’t able to meet at the same time so I met with the separate separately one – to – one and unfortunately the official had commitments that meant he couldn’t get anything organised. We had good chats and studies where we looked at the portion in Luke 9:57 where Jesus makes clear the cost of following Him …
In the media centre, several people said they had read the article that was put together by Christian journalist Kenny Crawford at the Scottish Open event in July when two players and I had an open meeting in Irvine and Kenny was present and laid the foundation for the piece, which was based on the Christian pros on the tour and my role also.
It is in this months ‘Bunkered’ magazine and it was good that many of the journalists had read it and they all thought it came over very well. Who can tell where and with whom God will use something that has been put together under His lead. Many thanks Kenny for doing this …
We’re still on the mainland this week at the Dunhill Links Championship played over three courses [St Andrews’s, Carnoustie and Kingsbarns]. My fears of waterproofs, woolly hats and umbrellas didn’t come to fruition in Newcastle where we reached 18 degrees all three days .. still, I’ll take them all along again this week?!

Jesus replied, “No one who puts his hand to the plow and looks back is fit for service in the kingdom of God.”
Plenty of overnight rain meant there was a delay with the morning times on the opening day of this event. Deer Park can get fairly wet at times and play was almost cancelled for the day if we got any more rain. This gave me the chance to chat with some of the guys in the bar area.
One was particularly interested in the ministry so this gave me a chance to go into more detail about what we do both here and on Tour, and this definitely gave him food for thought. I also mentioned about our Pro-Am and the possibility of a series of events which led to a conversation about a series of events abroad over winter. They had slightly gone off topic but a decent chat to start with!
As play finally got under way after a half hour delay, my playing partners were two guys who I have played with before over the past couple of seasons.
Both were well aware of my attachment and the Logos Pro-Am this week but one spoke during the round about the ministry as he is one of the professionals attending the event so just wanted to know a bit more detail of what was happening and where we were going with it.
Another great chance to consolidate a previous chat with him, as well as letting him know what to expect from Thursday and future events. He was very keen to attend the Pro-Am and showed great interest.
As we continued round the weather held but the course was still very wet and the greens became increasingly difficult to judge with how much they had been brushed to get rid of excess water. The normally perfectly presented greens were not the usual fast pace and this caused a few problems for one of my partners and I. The other seemed to negotiate them well but I have always struggled on greens that are not fast but not too slow, especially when damp.
After a poor display on the greens in the back nine I was disappointed with the score after striking the ball reasonably well. A good round required tomorrow.
The next day I was paired with two others who, again, I have both played with before and chatted to the previous day. A birdie at the first got us off to a good start and it was good to see some of my hard work starting to pay off and I felt good to go.
As we got chatting, one of the players was very interested in Logos and this led to several conversations about my faith and also a certain Mr Revie, who he must have come across on some Tour events.
It’s quite rare that someone tees up an opportunity to share a mini testimony but he asked me on the 8th hole, “So have you always been a church person?”. As we waited on a group playing through us due to a lost ball, I shared my experience of running away from my faith and then being ‘called’ back. It felt like good timing and he was interested.
On the back 9 he mentioned about guys he has played with who were quite ‘full on’ about their faith and I commented that everyone is different with how they share. Some need the subtle and some need a sledgehammer, and we are also all different on how we receive it. I am more the subtle approach and will never force anything on anyone unless the situation presents itself but God keeps providing the openings which I am happy to explore.
The other player and I chatted about a mutual friend, who has worked with him recently and I mentioned that he was interested in doing some work for Logos on Tour to which he thought would be right up his street and something he would be very good at. I know the player has great respect for him, not just because of his work but his faith also which only consolidates the ministry work.
It’s not often there are so many great chats at one event but it seemed as though everyone was really interested and the fact we have an event on the calendar with more to come has really got people talking.
With the sun even coming out for the last hour it was a very pleasant day despite a ball out of bounds at the short 13th. I was 3 under playing the hole and tried to bite off more than I should have which cost me a double bogey, but I wanted a low round.
Nevertheless it was nice to play reasonably well and the putting surfaces were smoother than the previous day. It was a pleasure to share some time with the guys over the past couple of days and I know God’s plan is taking shape.
Please pray for those mentioned in this report and for the Logos Golf Ministries Pro-Am this Thursday (28th September).
The P & H Championship – Renaissance Club(18th & 19th September)
This event normally takes place earlier in the year around May/June time but has been put back to late September due to the venue. This has loaded the schedule for the end of the year along with the Scottish PGA Championship in October but probably not a bad time to have it.
It’s nice to go to a venue like The Rennaissance Club as it feels more like a proper tour event with a players lounge and breakfast and lunch provided as standard. Driving up, you can see the range balls lined up on a fantastic crescent shaped range and it feels like you’re privileged. Before I played I bumped into a fellow pro, who was tucking into his breakfast and we had a brief chat about our work and how pleasant it was to sit in such nice surroundings.
He and I go way back to the amateur days of playing in the Glasgow Boys tournaments and at that time he was a GB & I cap. He does not play much now due to his club job but keeps his hand in whenever he can. It was good to catch up with him and hopefully I’ll get to speak with in more detail again.
My playing partners were from Dunblane and Yorkshire. I know the former well as we came through the PGA training at the same time so we had plenty to chat about over the course of the round. The other was a young lad from south of the border who had come up with his dad and has just started off in his PGA career. Both he and his dad were very quiet but nice gents and didn’t get too involved in the conversation apart from the usual golf chit-chat.
After a decent start my other playing partner and I got chatting about how life was treating us and this led to discussing the ministry to which he commented “Yes, I’ve heard you were doing that”. I was trying to think if I had spoken with him before about it but I think he may have heard it second hand which is good to know people are talking. I got to explain how we managed to arrange a Pro-Am this year with a guest speaker and he seemed quite interested but he did not go much further on it.
We were all playing reasonably well and then I had a horror hole which saw me take quite a few shots from a pot bunker and this derailed me a bit. There was very little sand in the bunker and no matter where you were in this very small, thin trap it seemed there was almost no shot out. My course management has normally been quite good this year but when I look back on that moment I opted for the glory shot instead of sacrificing and accepting I was going to drop at least a couple of shots.
This led to me dropping quite a few more than that. The only positive was that I didn’t let that affect the rest of my round and I still played reasonably well apart from that one hole. I now had to score a really low round the next day.
As we sat down to lunch, we all contemplated the round and although none of us had played that badly, we didn’t score as well as we should have. The Rennaissance Club can do that to you with the massive sloping plateau greens and if you can leave the course without a single three-putt you’ll be one of the very few.
Day two started with blue sky as far as you can see and I got chatting to quite a few guys before play. At breakfast I sat with a guy who now works for a golfing brand, but is still a PGA pro. We discussed the Logos Pro-Am which he seemed quite impressed with. I spoke with him a couple of years back regarding Logos so he already knew the background, and he felt this was really good exposure for us along with a reputable guest speaker such as Luther Blacklock.
A really good chat and good to catch up with him again after not seeing him for a while. I was just about to make my way out to hit some balls and I came across a tour player, who asked how I was doing. I was able to give him the full spiel about my family life and work for Logos and he just kind of looked at me with a shocked look. He obviously remembered what I was like a decade ago and was surprised by the change. As I left him, he did wish me well with the Pro-Am which was nice.
On to the second round and with my playing partners from the day before, we knew we had to go low. I don’t think I can remember a round where I hit the ball as consistently but did not really get any reward from it. I knew I had to go for it so I was more aggressive on the greens than I normally would have been as there were no points for shooting even par. I knew I needed about four or five under to make it through, so this increased the risk of three-putting which I was willing to take.
I just gave myself too much to do round a tough course but was pleased that I was at least able to give it a go the way I was hitting it. I chose the right shots to hit and gave the ball a good run on the greens which did not quite work out.
At the end of the round my older playing partner and I sat in the lounge and we talked about the event and how nice it was to play a venue such as this. We didn’t make it through but we were thankful to be there and be able to compete at that level. Both of us are capable of playing well enough to make the final stages of events. We just need to play more and don’t put so much pressure on ourselves.
I definitely feel my game is about to ignite and I am excited about moving up the rankings to where I should be, that being said I am very thankful that I can even play in PGA events. I am very blessed and I know that being more prominent can only help to serve the ministry and for what God is going to do in Scottish golf. I will press on towards the goal and look forward to the Logos Golf Ministries Pro-Am at Dundonald next week. This event is not just the culmination of the work done over the past years, but the beginning of God’s work moving to the next level.
Please pray for those mentioned in this report and for the Logos Pro-Am.
