There were many highlights in the matches, and quite a few turned in good personal performances.
Hitoshi had a good day at the office and declared nothing special to report, only a 6n5 win with 3xbirdies, the modesty of the low handicappers!
Dave had another solid game with the icing being the sinking of a 50 foot putt.
Sarah had an exceptional chip in birdie on the 1st hole to set the
tone for her and Axel's match.
Rey held her nerve to hole out for par to win the hole and clinch

Weather conditions were good for golf, not too hot and no rain.
Course had suffered a lot from recent rains leaving bare fairways in places.
In the matches themselves, highlight of the day was from stand in on the day, Axel, who produced one of his best rounds ever in the singles match, notching up 3 x birdies on his way to a convincing win over Shawn.

Day started off well with sun, later it clouded over and heavy shower stopped play for short time, however course conditions were good and not impacted by the rain.
All 5 matches went to the final hole, and D.O.G.S. and Sandbaggers were only separated by Dave Moore, shooting a solid 40 on the back 9, to pip Aidan to take that singles match 1 up.
Well done all, and thanks to Sandbaggers for making it a great match.
As to the Match with Sandbaggers; both teams were very well matched on paper and this was reflected on the course once the matches got underway.
D.O.G.S., however, were obviously buoyed by surprise appearance of the puppy DOG, nephew of the Little DOG, who wished everyone well before Tee-Off:
Many highlights during the day, but the pick of the bunch went to Rey Moore who scored an Eagle on the par4, 8th hole, well done!
This was closely followed by Michael Mueller getting a birdie on hole 7, the most difficult index hole on the course, unfortunately for the DOGS, both his opponents, Diarmuid and Fernando also got birdies to square the hole, nevertheless a great effort for a high handicapper.
Other highlights included:
Simon chipping in for a birdie on the second last hole to go 1 up, only to be pegged back by Kees who also chipped in for a birdie on the last hole to square the match, that was as close as it gets!
Colin shooting 2 x birdies.
Dougy drilling a 35 foot putt, on the 6th hole, to within 6 inches to take the hole.

Day started off well , bit of sun and coffee and friendly banter between D.O.G.S. and JAWS in the clubhouse at the start, then off to the tee box.
Tough match to come, in worsening weather conditions, but D.O.G.S. still had plenty of highlights including Koko’s introduction to matchplay with a win on his first outing, pairing up with stalwart Malcolm to see out a good win 3 and 2 in their pairs match.
David also had a good day, coming off a shaky start to string together a good run with 2 x birdies and take his singles opponent, Simon, to the last hole being 1 up. Unfortunately for D.O.G.S., Simon birdied the last hole to salvage a half, nevertheless a really good result for David against a very low handicapper.
In the other singles match, late entrant Dougy also had a slow start and did well to par the second last hole to level up the match going down the last fairway, but was unable to beat Randy’s great par on the last hole, thus losing the match by 1.
In other doubles matches John and Sarah lost 4 and 3, Rey and Michael lost 8 and 6 against very strong JAWS pairings.
Final result DOGS 3 JAWS 7

Due to the current restrictions on golf courses Interleague is unable to schedule events. As a result the decision was made to draw a line under the 2021 JIL season and call it void
If circumstances permit they will look to arrange a fun team style event, the scramble or another format to be determined, in either October or November.
Congratulations to our D.O.G.S. team who was tied for first when the season was called. We look forward to seeing your continued success next year.

It was time for the D.O.G.S. team to take the stage as the team everyone is chasing down after a 2 month break.
This was a very difficult round as we had 2 singles matches and a 4 ball against the closest team in the standings. We were at the top of the table before this round by 4 points ahead of JAWS with 1 game played less.
Captain Gary set the team out at riverside putting himself and Tim Knight in the singles against JAWS . Tim won but Captain lost in 2 very close fought matches.
In the other match against JAWS Kevin Dobson and Michael Mueller managed to halve.
Unfortunately Cucu and Jeremy who lost a close match.
Anchoring the team, TPS and Malcolm finished with a win.
Overall, 5 out of 10 was a good result for the day keeping us on top of the league at the halfway point of the season with played 1 game less than JAWS.
With the next match so close around the corner captain Gary will be watching everyone's results with close eyes as the team is gelling together very nicely.
Finally, even though Captain Gary may be a little biased, he says the D.O.G.S. are the best dressed team out there in their Via.com team shirt . Thank you to everyone that is involved to help the D.O.G.S. team.
Gary Danskin 3 & 2 loss

The Jakarta Inter-league (JIL) has been around for 30 years. For the first time ever the D.O.G.S. have entered a team in the competition.
In December of 2020 we began gauging interest and quickly found out that there were many Dogs up for some match play competition. The team was formed and we anxiously awaited results of the League's Captains vote to find out if we were in. Sure enough, in January we found out we would be competing in 2021. With all the excitement of the build up over, Sunday, February 21st was time for the D.O.G.S. to make their Inter-league debut. Perhaps as an omen, clear skies were the order for most of the day.
Captain Gary Danskin had Selly Robbie and Hitoshi Maruyama doing battle in the singles and teams Gary Danskin & Rey Moore, David Moore & Michael Mueller, James Bristow & Tribhuvan Singh (TPS) playing in Four Balls.
Maybe we are a bit biased but they certainly look like the best dressed team!
With a possible 10 points up for grabs the D.O.G.S. took 9, making Captain Gary very happy.
With the first round of JIL completed the D.O.G.S. are sitting 1st out of 7 teams . Not a bad start; just need to keep the focus and high standard up now.
Selly Robbie 2up winner
Hitoshi 3 & 1 winner
David & Michael 3 & 2 winner
James & TPS 2 up winner
Gary & Rey all square
