This week I played golf for Great Britain and Ireland Anglican clergy against our North American counterparts. It is played in teams of 16 in a similar style to the Ryder Cup. For the first time in 10 years, GB&I won.
During the 4 day match it was suggested that the Christian spirit in which to play each game was to wish your opponent that they win. This it was suggested was the competitive outworking of really loving each other. Emm! I personally wished my opponent that they play well, and in playing that was what I sought to do. If I got to the end of the round and felt that I had played well then I was happy, the result was secondary.
In sporting competition is this what it means to love my golfing partner? What do you think?
