A FIELD OF 312 golfers will tee off Monday in the U.S. Amateur at Southern Hills and Cedar Ridge. One of them – 24-year-old Louie Bishop of Murrieta, Calif. – knows he has zero chance of advancing to Sunday’s finals and, yes, he’s at peace with that.
Bishop is a Seventh-day Adventist. He doesn’t compete on Saturdays because of his sabbath – sundown Friday to sundown Saturday.
That means Bishop would have a decision to make if he was fortunate enough to reach Saturday’s match play semifinals.
Pursue a very significant trophy?
Or stay true to his faith?
