Dunhill Links Championship
St Andrews
October 5 – 7, 2016

yrrell-hatton-winning-the-dunhill-at-st-andrewsThe Dunhill, every second year, follows the Ryder Cup and half of the Europe team raced back from the USA to take part alongside their long-time amateur partner’s … I guess the travel and turmoil of the Ryder Cup took its toll as only three made the cut and Masters champion Danny Willett didn’t, although his caddie, who was his playing partner for the week wasn’t so affected and they won the team prize, one up for the caddies …

This is always a very popular tournament, if a bit fragmented, with three courses in use, but I did manage to meet up with our media-man fiend and believer Mike from SA for a good long chat about the things of God and what He was doing with him … and had another long talk about what God was doing in the life of a putting coach, whom I come across three/four times a season with this week being one of his brief forays on the Tour ….

SA has a good turnout in the Dunhill due to the connection with the company’s owner Johan Rupert and amongst those playing were Dean Burmeister [whom I met up with] and JB Kruger, they did find it a little chilly compared to the SAs Dunhill version at Leopard Creek, in Kruger National Park where the temperature will be in the high thirties in December [and Logos make me go to this!] …

Also spent a couple of hours with Logos friends and supporters, the Glasgow’s, who live in St Andrews show us generous hospitality year on year …

Next Week; The British Masters at The Grove, near London …

“Even now my witness is in heaven; my advocate is on high.
My intercessor is my friend as my eyes pour out tears to God;
On behalf of a man he pleads with God as one pleads for a friend.”
Job 16:19-21

All your intercessions go through Him, and I am grateful for them all …

Logos on Tour at St Andrews

Dunhill Links Championship – St Andrews Sept 30 – Oct 02

Well, we had both our Logos meetings over these two weeks in Scotland, and I’m pleased to say they went really well

Wednesday 24 Sept – Logos Scotland at Easterhouse Glasgow

This was our launch meeting of “Logos Scotland” and as with all things we are dreaming big and starting small … Seventeen good folks turned up and we had a Ryder Cup themed evening hosted by PGA pro Vincent Brown, we also had a putting competition which was won by the only lady taking part, but we won’t mention that … Things look promising for the future ministry there both among the pros and amateurs with five eager people all ready to organise a variety of activities in the golf world …

Wednesday 01 October – Question & Answer night at the New Golf Club St Andrews

St Andrews Old Course
Logos on Tour at the Dunhill Championship St Andrews

The organisation of this was done through our Logos supporters in St Andrews and we had an excellent venue, hospitality and welcome …. Around 45 turned up and the panel was made of Hennie Otto, Mike Vlismas [SA media man] and myself, our good Logos friend Lindsay Glasgow chaired the panel [that means he kept us all in check] … We had a golfing Q&A to start as many there were keen to hear what goes on in the inner sanctums of big golf events and of course this led to the Christian testimony of us all … We had several people who “turned up” on the night and were unaware of just what they were getting into, always good when you know that God will bring people to something that they didn’t know they were going to be at!!! We had a number of non-believers and one atheist who introduced himself at the end by saying, he had no intention of being there, but he was, and found it all “very interesting.”

So a good couple of weeks, and the prospect of more to follow …

Next Week; the final European based event of the Tour, in Portugal … Always a popular week and normally plenty sunshine ….
