Verse of the month

“For we ourselves were also once foolish, disobedient, deceived, serving various lusts and pleasures, living in malice and envy, hateful and hating one another. But when the kindness and the love of God our Savior toward man appeared, not by works of righteousness which we have done, but according to His mercy He saved us, through the washing of regeneration and renewing of the Holy Spirit, whom He poured out on us abundantly through Jesus Christ our Savior, that having been justified by His grace we should become heirs according to the hope of eternal life.”
‭‭
Titus‬ ‭3:3-7‬ ‭NKJV

Jbe’ finishes second in Manila  (Sunshine Tour)

Jbe’ Kruger played his way to second place at the Resorts World Manila Masters on Sunday after finishing the week on 14-under-par.

Natipong Srithong carded a final-round 67 to close out the tournament on 15-under-par, which earned the Thai a one-shot victory.

Kruger, who won the 2012 Avantha Masters, shot rounds of 69, 65, 69, 71 at Manila Southwoods Golf & Country Club to finish sole second.

The final round was tough for the Bloemfontein local, who had his charge halted by a double bogey six at the 10th hole. It put him on the back foot over the stretch and, although he made a birdie at the 18th, he came up short of forcing a playoff.

“If it’s not meant to be, it’s not meant to be. I just hit a terrible shot on 10 and tried to fight back and hit it close a few times but the putts didn’t want to drop,” he said.

It was none-the-less a good result for Kruger, who had made $30,000 on the 2015 Asian Tour prior to this week. On Sunday he rose to 25th on the Order of Merit after this tournament.

“I’m playing a lot better now. As soon as I get the putter going, I’ll start to win again. I’m going home, playing next week. Almost on form now and just need to work on the putter,” he said ahead of the Alfred Dunhill Championship, which starts Thursday.
