I have been very fortunate to attend 4 Masters tournaments. I honestly have not had a more moving experience in golf than by attending this wonderful event. One thing I remember so clearly was gazing up at the 40' tall Azalea trees in full bloom down through Amen Corner and did you know you would be hard pressed to find a weed or clover on that entire golf course. It is absolutely stunning.
Benhard's story has been presented many times relative to his finding real meaning to life after that victory. He happened to run into another Tour Player in the parking lot of the Heritage Classic in Hilton Head, SC on Wednesday after his victory and was invited into the Tour Bible Study where he met Larry Moody and eventually gave his life over to Jesus Christ. From that time on, Bernhard has known the real Master and has dedicated his life to Him accomplishing amazing works outside of the golf course to effect peoples lives.
But, there was a transforming occurrence that happened in each of our lives whether it was through a golf experience or a life experience or both. That transformation occurred because the Master of all of creation guided us down a path to see the reality of Him in our lives and in the creation around us.
That is what we are praying to happen in the lives of those that will be drawn to this 2014 Men's and Women's U.S. Open Championships in June at the Village Chapel. Our Open Doors for the Open will attempt to express our appreciation to the Lord for His goodness and guidance in our lives. We want to share this gift with those who have a passion for golf and do or could have a love of God as well.
Join us and meet the real Master.
