D.O.G.S. First Round at Modern Golf & Country Club

Hail the D.O.G.S.!!!!!,

Happy New Year to all the D.O.G.S. and great to see we are off and running for the 2022 season. 31 players turned out for our first round of the year at Modern Golf & Country Club with more sure to come in the following weeks as some of our regulars emerge from quarantine.

In what we hope will become a frequent feature, 2021 Top Dog TPS did a candid interview with our 2022 Interleague Captain Douglas McQuater prior to the round.

Let's see who TPS selects next week!

A big welcome back after a long absence to James Bristow and good to see Yarub Obaidalla back again after just over a year.

The weather was good, if not a bit breezy, but the club got us all off on time with a mini shotgun start. Play was steady and all were finished in good time.

Before the prize giving we had some old business to take care of. Douglas McQuater collected his 3rd Place trophy from Permata Sentul and Dave Keddington picked up his Lowest Gross trophy and Big Dog for his win at Riverside.

Willy Noronha had a good day taking 3 of the skill prizes; Longest Drive, Drive & Pitch and Putting Champion, with Tribhuvan Singh taking the other Longest Drive and one of the Nearest to the Pin, the other being taken by Vijay Sarashetti. Ezra Alexander took the other Drive & Pitch.

Reysia Moore had an uncharacteristically difficult day by taking the Booby prize but Nathan Keddington certainly got his money’s worth with a commanding 156 off the stick; it can only get better. Really!

Nana Sari Dewi became a first time Runner Up winner and the ever ubiquitous Roger Finnie took Lowest Gross and became our first Weekly Champion of the year.

Congratulations to all of this week's winners!

Too early to say much about the Eclectic at the moment but full Eclectic and Lowest Gross results can be found on our Leaderboard.

Our charity for this eclectic series is the ANZA Scholarship program with further details given below in Announcements. Thanks to Ruth Lajousky for introducing us to this worthy cause.

We will be running the President's Challenge matchplay competition again this year which will kick off soon after the conclusion of our 2021 season. Juju Juhaeriah is scheduled to play David Moore in the final on January 22nd. Kevin Dobson will announce more details shortly.

So grab a friend and sign up for next week’s round. Please let Rod know your group preferences as soon as possible. We are likely to have a shotgun start again so please be there in good time.

The Rules and what it means when we play.

Courtesy of fellow Dog, Jens Roestel, R&A First Grade Umpire.

Question 1:

A player plays her second shot, searches for her ball briefly and then announces

she will go back and play a provisional ball. She drops and plays a second ball

from where she played her previous stroke. The player then continues searching

for her original ball and finds it within three minutes of when she first started

searching for it.

What is the ruling?

  1. The player must continue with the provisional ball.

  2. The player must continue with the original ball.

  3. The player may choose whether to continue with the original ball or the provisional ball.

Question 2:

In stroke play, if a player, when starting a hole, plays from outside the teeing

area, the player incurs a penalty of two strokes and the ball must be played as it


  1. True

  2. False

Question 3:

Someone who walks with a player and gives him advice during a round but does

not carry his clubs, is a caddie.

  1. True

  2. False

Question 4:

A player makes a practice swing and accidentally moves her ball in play on the

fairway with her club.

What is the ruling?

  1. The player gets one penalty stroke and must replace the ball.

  2. There is no penalty but the player must replace the ball.

  3. There is no penalty, but the movement of the ball counts as a stroke and the

  4. ball must be played as it lies.

Question 5:

If a player makes his first stroke in a round at a ball on a non-conforming tee, he

is disqualified.

  1. True

  2. False

Correct Answers

Question 1: Correct answer 2


As the original ball was found within three minutes, the player must continue with the original ball (Rule 18.3c).

Question 2: Correct answer 2


If a player, when starting a hole, plays a ball from outside the teeing area, he or

she incurs a penalty of two strokes and must then play a ball from within the

teeing area. If the player does not correct the mistake before making a stroke to

begin another hole or, for the final hole of the round, before returning his or her

scorecard, the player is disqualified.

Question 3: Correct answer 1

Question 4: Correct answer 1


If a player causes her ball in the general area to move without making a stroke

there is a one stroke penalty.

Question 5: Correct answer 2


The ball was not in play yet.

ANZA Student Sponsorship Program

For the Modern 2022 tournament we have chosen ANZA's Student Sponsorship Program to be the beneficiary of proceeds from our collection barrel.

The program was started in 1988 by Marilyn Ardipradja, initially with 22 students sponsored by 19 sponsors, and has grown over the past thirty years to help approximately 500 students per school year. The program provides financial assistance to enable disadvantaged Indonesian children to go to school, and is funded by sponsorship rather than ANZA’s own social welfare funds.

More information on the program can be found on our Charity page.

WhatsApp Group

We have 2 WhatsApp groups for members; our Chatter group which is used for sharing jokes and non-D.O.G.S. related information and our Updates group where we share information specific to D.O.G.S. rounds. If you would like to be added to either or both of these groups please send us an email with your cell phone number to
