It was a great day . . .

The tournament went off without a hitch. 81 great guys and 2 great ladies golfed 18 holes at Sky Creek Ranch in Keller, TX, which had just been overseeded, so the greens were pretty damp.

The team that won last year repeated their win this year! And one of the ladies won the longest drive contest, beating her nearest male challenger by over 40 feet!

I was offered the chance to putt for a birdie for the final group at the hole I was monitor of. It was the hole where you could win a new Chevy truck and set of Calloway clubs for a hole-in-one. Sank an 18 footer, with a break to the left! Sometimes I even amaze myself!

The tournament dinner and awards presentation is my favorite part of the day, because it is always a very good steak and chicken fajita dinner. I don't ever remember having better fajitas. The presentations for 1st and last place, closest to the hole, and longest drive are always fun . . . and should be. These fine golfers deserve the recognition.

Hats off to the staff at Sky Creek Ranch. These folks will always do you good.

Hats off to the Iron Men Golf Tournament leadership team. I am honored to be in ministry with them.

I'm better than I deserve! ><>

It was sheer, pure, dumb luck. Before I putted the ball, I even said out loud . . . "I have no idea what I am doing!"

hehe...you know, sometimes the people that think they know exactly what they are doing, are the ones that miss by a mile
