Hail the D.O.G.S.!!!!!,
With many players away for a golf weekend in Bali, 23 players turned up to take advantage and jockey for position in the Eclectic. A hot day had many players tiring on the back nine but all managed to finish in daylight. Unfortunately hard swinging Patrick Chaundy had to withdraw after the first hole due to a pulled muscle in his back. We wish you a speedy recovery Patrick.
Thank you to Tribhuvan "TPS" Singh for introducing his mates Priyati Peiris, Sunny Singh and Jippy to the D.O.G.S.; thanks for joining us, we hope you come back soon.
Last year's Permata Sentul Eclectic Champion, Michael Mueller, was fresh out of quarantine and back in play with the D.O.G.S. for his first round at PS since collecting the Big Dog. Michael didn't go home empty handed winning the Booby Prize and Most Exercise awards! Quite a difference between last year and this year.
TPS took Lowest Gross with an 82, and David Moore was our Runner Up with 40 Stableford points along with a Drive & Pitch prize. David, also took the time out of his round to text everyone that he won his match against Robson Drumond 7 -6. In case they missed it, he sent it again to a few players.
New guy Priyati Peiris took a Longest Drive and Diarmuid Flanagan won the other. Stick around next time D.
Leon Bivolaru was Putting Champion and, building on that, took Weekly Champion honours.
Congratulations to all our winners!
Check out full results on our Leaderboard.
There are some interesting matchups and we are likely to see a few surprises in the next round. Good luck to the remaining players!
As we head into the penultimate round competition is starting to tighten up; Jeremy Oberoi is holding onto a slim 0.5 point lead over Holger Molendyk and Douglas McQuater is not far back in 3rd place. The Lowest Gross is also starting to take shape with TPS sitting at the top.

Some answers to common questions.
Is player allowed to repair natural wear of the hole on the putting green before putting?
Explanation: A player may repair damage on the putting green, however, "damage on the putting green" does not include any damage or conditions that resulted from natural wear of the hole.
Is the teeing area is a rectangle that is three club-lengths deep?
Not correct, it is 2 club-lengths deep.
Can a player employ two caddies at the same time during a round?
No, this is not allowed.
When ground under repair is defined by a painted line on the ground, the line itself is in the ground under repair?
Yes it is, the line belongs to the marked area.
In stroke play, is a player allowed to practice from a bunker close to the putting green of the hole just completed?
A player may practice putting or chipping on or near the putting green of a hole just completed, but practice strokes may not be made from a bunker.
If you have any questions about rules please drop us a note to firstname.lastname@example.org and our Rules Guy Jens Roestel will answer on our website.
To ensure everyone's safety, players are reminded to follow the protocols set by Jakarta's COVID-19 Response Team:
Wear a mask properly wherever you go
Wash your hands with soap and running water regularly
Maintain a safe distance of 1.5 to 2 meters
Lastly, we certainly enjoy when you come out to play with us, but if you are ill, it is best to stay home and rest.
