Verse of the month

Therefore, since we have been justified through faith, we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ through whom we have gained access by faith into this grace in which we now stand. And we boast in the hope of the glory of God. Not only so, but we also glory in our sufferings, because we know that suffering produces perseverance;perseverance, character; and character, hope. And hope does not put us to shame, because God’s love has been poured out into our hearts through the Holy Spirit, who has been given to us.
 
Romans 5: 1-5 NIV

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.
