Hail the D.O.G.S.!!!!!,
32 players turned out to see who would take home the Big Dog. Tee off was right on time with players benefiting from a shotgun start on holes 1-4. The weather was mostly cooperative with the showers holding off until the end of the day. Unfortunately for a few groups they didn't hold out quite long enough, and a few Dogs finished the day soggy.
Welcome to Maria, Cindy and Prosad Biswas, we hope you enjoyed the day and will be back soon.
Fernando Gaggino had a great round shooting an 80 to take Lowest Gross and Runner Up. The newbies did well with Maria getting a Longest Drive and Prosad Biswas gathering Most Exercise. Dan Swinburne was Putting Champion with 27. The biggest shock of the day was Kevin Dobson winning a Nearest to the Pin with a great shot on 11. David Moore was winner of the Little Dog as our Weekly Champion.
Prior to handing out the prizes for Permata Sentul, we had unfinished business to take care of. The course closures prevented us from completing our Pangkalan Jati tournament and handing out the prizes. Results were taken from the standings after 5 rounds. Shlok Rajeev was our 3rd place finisher, Fernando Gaggino was Runner Up and Tribhuvan "TPS" Singh added the second Big Dog to his kennel becoming our 2021 Pangkalan Jati Eclectic Champion.
With Gary Danskin away in Bali, this tournament saw a good battle for Lowest Gross Champion with Jeremy Oberoi taking the title by a 0.5 margin.
It was a tight race coming into this week, several players were in the hunt for the Eclectic. Dougy McQuater was in 2nd place but was away and had to hope for the best; he ended up in 3rd. Jeremy Oberoi started in 1st and made 1 improvement, unfortunately his recent good play caught up to him in the form of a reduced handicap, leaving Jeremy to finish as Runner Up. Our winner made 4 improvements to leap from 5th place into 1st. Congratulations to David Moore our 2021 Permata Sentul Eclectic Champion.
Congratulations to all our winners!

The Rules and what it means when we play.

Question: As Player A is preparing to play onto the green, he asks Player B whether there is a bunker located behind the green and what the distance is to the centre of the green. Player B answers both questions. What is the penalty?
There is no penalty.
Both players get the general penalty.
A gets four penalty strokes.
Explanation: Public information is not unruly advice. Penalty area, Bunker positions and distances are public information
Question: In a stroke-play competition, A, B and C were drawn by the Committee to play together starting at 9.00 am. A and B were present at the appointed time. C arrived at 9.02 am, after A and B had teed off, but just in time to play in the correct order. What is the ruling?
C is disqualified.
There is no penalty.
C gets a penalty of two strokes.
Explanation: As player C arrived and was ready to play within five minutes after his starting time, he gets a penalty of two strokes for failure to be ready to play at the start time established by the Committee. If C had arrived more than five minutes after his starting time, the penalty would be disqualification. (In match-play the penalty would be loss of hole and after 5 minutes, disqualification)
A player’s ball in the rough lies in the loose material caused by a rabbit digging a hole. The player is entitled to free relief.
Answer: 1 Explanation: A hole made by an animal is an abnormal course condition. Free relief from an abnormal course condition is available in the general area.
