Hail the D.O.G.S.!!!!!,
A strong turnout for our first round in the new Eclectic series at Pondok Cabe Golf Club with 45 players joining. We had a few newcomers, or at least relative newcomers, including Andrew and Sally Deane, Riche Tiblani and Wayne Larosee. Welcome all, and good to see Bobby Cangkrama back after a long absence.
The weather was good and the course was in good condition even though there had been a fair amount of rain. Lift, clean and place on the fairways was the order of the day. The starter got us off on time and pace of play was steady with all players finishing in good time.
Meher Noronha and George Stretton showed the way when it comes to accuracy on the par 3’s by taking the Nearest to the Pin prizes. Jeremy Oberoi and Diarmuid Flanagan definitely showed us the way with the Longest Drives. Jens Roestel and Sholk Rajeev took the Drive & Pitch honours. Jeremy Oberoi certainly seemed to have his eye in on the greens becoming this week’s Putting Champion.
Newcomer Wayne Larosee didn’t go away empty handed taking both the Booby and Most Exercise prizes with very respectable scores. I wouldn’t feel too hard done by Wayne!
A crowd of players vied for the Runner Up spot but Fernando Gaggino took the honour on count back. This week’s Champion was Jens Roestel taking home the first Little Dog of this Eclectic series.
Congratulations to all of this week's winners!

The Rules and what it means when we play.
Courtesy of fellow Dog, Jens Roestel, R&A First Grade Umpire.
A few weeks ago we had a discussion, whether a group of players (a flight) should wait at the green until the last player has finished the final putt or whether everybody should leave when they finished the hole.
I have asked the R&A to clarify and this is their answer:
There is no existing rule or etiquette requirement anymore, which requires all players to wait until the last player has finished their putting. If faster play can be achieved by leaving the green after each player has finished the putting, that should be done. One player must remain at or close to the green to watch the final player finishing the putting to guarantee the correctness of play and score.
A player makes a practice swing and accidentally moves the ball in play on the fairway with the club. What is the ruling?
The player gets one penalty stroke and must replace the ball.
There is no penalty, but the player must replace the ball.
There is no penalty, but the movement of the ball counts as a stroke and the ball must be played as it lies.
Correct answer: 1
If a player causes the ball in the general area to move without making a stroke
there is a one stroke penalty.
If a player makes his first stroke in a round at a ball on a non-conforming tee (means outside the correct tee box), the player is disqualified.
Correct answer: 2
In stroke play the player gets a penalty of 2 strokes and must play again, from inside the tee box before making a stroke to begin another hole, or, if on final hole, before returning scorecard. The penalty escalates from two strokes to disqualification if you fail to do this.
In match play there is no penalty, but your opponent may immediately request that you cancel the stroke and play another ball from within the correct teeing area.
If you have any questions about rules please drop us a note to email@example.com and our Rules Guy Jens Roestel will answer on our website.
