At the Champion's Tour Greater Gwinnett Championship conducted on the Champions Tour last month, it was a simple 4 hours drive to Atlanta for us from Murfreesboro, TN. We teamed up with Ron Potter, the President of the Challenge Golf Association, Sam Woolwine, a member of the CGA staff, Don Midgette the President of the Board of Directors and Greg Powers, a member of the Board and lifetime member of the PGA Tour. Our objective was to visit together during this trip and orient each other on each of our activities as we are trying to reach out to the world of golf and introduce Jesus Christ as well as disciple Believers.
We discovered several similarities during our dinner. Then we attended the Night of Champions, Links Players Outreach to the local community and thoroughly enjoyed our time together with Larry Nelso, Tom Lehman, Tom Randall (Chaplain on the Champions Tour), Dave Marr of the Golf Channel and the company of several other Champions' Tour players in attendance. The message during the Night of Champions was that God is active in the platform of golf, yet, only when men and women are obediently seeking His face and doing what He is encouraging and empowering them to do. This movement in golf has been evident over the past 35 years.
The next day was round 1 of the Gwinnett Championship. It was cold and wet, but, as you can see by the video, it was wonderful to see these gifted Players get ready, then head to the course and play with excellence this wonderful game we all love. Jimenez broke through as expected and won the event with some stellar golf and some challenge from one of our favorite Brothers, Bernhard Langer. It was a wonderful day and great opportunity.
