The Flem Cup
Scott Dow Dow, author
The Flem Cup is the remarkable true story of a great friendship, a trans-Atlantic team golf match and the providential hand of God. The name of the event said it all: a tribute to the man whose idea it was as well as a tongue-in-cheek testament to the quality of play, and, for 5 years, teams from the U.S. and England collided in an intense competition punctuated by hilarious off-course antics in a battle for the coveted trophy - an antique, hand-blown glass spittoon. When cancer struck, though, a search for answers to life’s bigger questions set the stage for an unexpected journey into discovering God’s grace and redemptive love. Author Scott Dow felt compelled to share this amazing story about his dear friend Ian Jennings and their journey together through tragedy and loss to hope and redemption. From the whimsical website that documented every detail to the characters involved to the events that transpired during those years, God’s grace was at work every step of the way and, in the end, lives were changed. Tears of laughter and sadness, great joy and tragic loss are all found in the pages of The Flem Cup. Readers will find a great golf story wrapped inside an even greater story of hope and redemption.
