VIEWS OF A FARM BOY

This is what the Lord says: "When seventy years are completed for Babylon, I will come to you and fulfill my gracious promise to bring you back to this place. For I know the plans I have for you," declares the Lord, "plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future." (NIV) (Jeremiah 29: 10,11)

It was an extra special tourney for Tom Lehman because his daughter, Rachael, was his caddie. So many professional golfers depend on their caddie for advice, finding the distance, etc.--but not Tom--not today. Rachael does not play golf, but she did carry his bag and offered her dad words of support and encouragement. That is what I call a winning team--and that is just what it was.  Tom (or maybe I should say "they")  won the 2018 Principal Charity Classic Golf Tournament.

The Principal Charity Classic Golf Tournament was held at the beautiful Wakonda Club in Des Moines, June 05-10, 2018. I am glad I went Saturday as the final day, scheduled for Sunday, was rained out. I have attended this event many times and I am always amazed at the skills and sportsmanship demonstrated by these great PGA Champions Tour players.

The Principal Charity has donated over thirteen million dollars (since 2007) to Iowa organizations that support children. The $20 per day ticket fee is certainly a reasonable price for a great outdoor entertainment venue. But it is much more than that--it is an investment in Iowa youth!
