I am, to say the least, totally excited that I will be attending The Player's Championship next week in Jacksonville, Florida. This tournament is the PGA Tour's only "major." It is an incredible week of the PGA Tour and the World's top 125 players, vying for the Crystal Vase, over a million dollars for 1st place, and a 5 year exemption on Tour.
Of course, one of the highlights of the week is the famous "island-green 17th Hole." This hole, more than any other, has crushed the dreams of many an aspiring golfer. I position myself on the island side of the hole and watch players hit into the par 5 16th and then into the island-green 17th. It is a great two-hole display: they can eagle/birdie the 16th and lose it all on the 17th.
I am looking forward to seeing many of the caddies who I have ministered to over the past 15 years and to have a time of prayer, bible study, and sharing together.
On Monday after the tournament, the caddies have their annual tournament and I have been invited to play.
Please pray for the week. I look forward to shaing the gospel with those whom our Heavenly Father is drawing to Himself.
