Verse of the month

"Therefore take up the whole amor of God, that you may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all, to stand.
 
Stand therefore, having girded your waist with truth, having put on the breastplate of righteousness, and having shod your feet with the preparation of the Gospel of peace; above all, taking the shield of faith with which you will be able to quench all the fiery darts of the wicked one.
 
And take the helmet of salvation, and the Sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God;  praying always with all prayer and supplication in the Spirit, being watchful to this end with all perseverance and supplication for all the saints -"
 
Ephesians 6:13-19 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.
