The Day was a bit different than expected
The day was one of those special, extraordinary weather days in Middle Tennessee that we don't normally see; hot, yet not very humid. So, how could anything be a problem when the day came out like that?
The Browns hosted the group in their lovely home and the guest speaker was Scotty Smith, author of several books, including "Everyday Prayers", "Restoring Broken Things" and others.
Scotty spoke on the first verse of the book of Jude and, I was not aware of the fact that Jude was a brother of Jesus. He expanded on the first verse to tell us how amazing it was what Jesus Christ has done for us, in that; we are "those who have been called, who are loved in God the Father and kept for (by) Jesus Christ." Wow, what a message.
Jose asked a few of the Players to update their experiences on the Web.com Tour and it was interesting to hear how a few of them had been playing very well as of late and almost secured their Top 25 position on the Tour, therefore qualifying for the PGA Tour in 2018!!!
One Player in particular expanded on his experience of becoming more at peace with himself, his game and his profession as he became more aware of his position in Christ. Very impactful.
The night ended for me as Pat Sellers of PGA Tour Putting, myself and one of the Players discussed Pat's research for the past 16 years and how golf and life are so alike. Love this stuff!!
One Player in particular expanded on his experience of becoming more at peace with himself .... Thru Christ ....
So, upon reaching the entrance to the golf course, the policeman informed me that all spectators had to park at Englewood High School just 7 miles from the course and there would be a shuttle to take folks to and from from the event. As I sat there listening to him I observed about 4 people on the golf course and NO traffic coming in and out of the course. By the way it was about 3:15 PM.
So, I, dutifully drove to the High School where there were about 12 cars in the spectator parking area and waited 20 mins for a shuttle which did not arrive. Now, granted this is Tuesday of a Web.com event, but, no shuttles in 20 minutes?
I had to decide what I would do for 3 hours, searched the area for a golf course and practice putted for 2+ hours. I needed it .... then off to my original destination, the Brown's residence and Tour Life. Great and interesting and blessed day.
Thank you, Father!!
