Challenge Tour – Galgorm Castle Ballymena Northern Ireland Open July 26 – 29, 2016

In the past I haven’t been around for the Galgorm event [takes place across the road from where I live] due to European Tour (ET) events clashing, but with no tournament on the main tour I was able to go back and forth over the week to Galgorm ….. You’ll recall the SA caddie who got saved last November and me telling you he was to be on the ET with his player Francesco la Porta, well as is all to common, they split up in early March and he has been on the Challenge tour with SAs Michael Palmer, a young man who came through the US College system, so it was good too meet up with the caddy and have a one – to – one for an hour … Also the couple (met frequently last year) are on this tour for the season due to the player not retaining his card last year and his wife is caddying for him, so it was good to see them also …

European Tour – Paul Lawrie Match-Play Archerfield North Berwick August 4 – 5, 2016

This is the second year of the 64-man match-play, and is an extremely quiet event with only a third of the usual weekly number taking part with half of them going home after round one!!

It’s one of those weeks when simply being there and the familiarity that brings on a week to week basis comes to the fore, as ones purpose unfolds with an eye to the future, so it was good to have a few prolonged chats, about nothing in particular, with several players/caddies as there was a bit more time for them to dwell …. So that is all stored away for upcoming contacts …

With an eye to the next event in Prague [Czech Open] currently there are three of the Christian players; Jake Roos, Dean Burmeister and JBe Kruger in the field as well as other caddies being there, plus Nick [courtesy car man] and Mark also … So appreciate your prayers for that and my seeking to arrange a get together …

The LORD works everything out for his own purposes ..” Proverbs 16:3-4a

Logos on Tour @ Italian Open Turin & Glagorm Northern Ireland

Italian Open Turin August 26 – 28Hennie Otto

A quiet week in Turin …. This was the location of our first meeting four years ago on the tour along with Hennie and Co, so it always holds a bit of a special place … We met up again this week and it was good to hear how things were with Hennie and the two operations on his back and great too see his passion for Jesus is four years stronger, there’s no compromising with Hennie

The week was uneventful, but there were two interesting little instances; our old caddy friend, was waxing lyrical as only he can, about the world and its obsession with possessions and money and I pointed out to him Matthew 6:24 about being devoted to either God or money. This I know he will be telling all and sundry about this when he holds court amongst the players and caddies, as he does … It is quite amusing to see him telling forth Gods word [whilst claiming all the wisdom of its truth], reminds you of how God would use those who didn’t know him to fulfil His purposes e.g. Cyrus and such like …

Also, on the Survey day I wandered onto the range at 6.30am to be greeted by the another caddie, who proceeded to show me a photo he’d taken with his phone, which was of Philippians 4: 6-7 “do not worry …” and he asked how can you do this? So it was good to explain to him who the Prince of Peace was … Every little opening counts ….

Galgorm Castle Challenge Tour North Ireland OpenMichael Hoey

Lots of tour players were at Galgorm this week and so I crossed the road and called in Friday and Saturday too meet up with the SA believer Jake Roos who is still looking good to qualify for the main tour next year … I also seen a few others and one interesting contact is the person who caddied for Jake, Mark McGowan, whom I have come across here and there over the last twenty years, he’s a PGA pro that I played alongside a couple of times and bumped into again in Cork at the Irish Open and he is keen to do some caddying on the tour and is going to Switzerland next week just to show his face and I shall meet him at Geneva airport and travel to Crans Montana with him, so do please pray over this Godincidence …

These little happenings always remind me of Ruth 2:3 “ .. as it turned out ..” when she just so happened to turn into the field of Boaz, leading to the genealogy of Jesse, David and ultimately Jesus ….
