Hail the D.O.G.S.!!!!!,
Another great turnout this week with 50 players making the journey. Even though the traffic was not so friendly this week compared to previous rounds, everyone managed to arrive in time for our usual mini shotgun start on time. Thanks everyone!
The weather proved to be unkind to us again, although we didn’t have quite the storm we had last week. This time light rain didn’t hold up play and everyone was back in the clubhouse in reasonable time. We have spoken to the starters about interjecting other groups in the middle of the D.O.G.S. and hopefully they have got the message as some of you were held up somewhat; our apologies for that.
Good to see Simon Oxley join us along with Andy Coop, whom we haven’t seen for some time; welcome back guys!
Yet again we had some multiple winners with Willy Noronha taking a Longest Drive and Drive & Pitch prize and Dave Keddington taking the other Drive & Pitch and Lowest Gross honours. His game just keeps going from strength to strength! Colin Sifton and Michael Mueller took the Nearest to the Pin prizes with Alex MacGregor taking the other Longest Drive honour.
A four way tie for this week's Putting Champion saw Jens Roestel’s unique putting style win through on count back. Maybe it’s because he can actually hold an umbrella given his one handed style!
Honey Muang, although improved from last week, still managed to take the Booby Prize, but this week Sandra Novita took the long way round the course winning this week’s Most Exercise honour. Jeremy Oberoi, although looking a bit bleary eyed (for reasons best not gone into) still managed to take the Runner Up prize this week. It’s always good to congratulate a first time Weekly Champion and we did just that this week with Vijay Sarashetti taking home his first Little Dog to start his D.O.G.S. kennel. Good incentive to all, anything’s possible if you keep persevering!
We must also give our sincere thanks to Avnish Patankar for donating his delicious Tasty Greens as extra prizes for all our winners this week, thanks Avnish, very much appreciated and enjoyed!
Congratulations to all of this week's winners!
The full standings can be seen through the links on our Leaderboard page or in the mygolf2u app.
So, four weeks gone in the Eclectic and Mr Keddington continues to lead with by a slightly increased margin and seems to be running away on the Lowest Gross leaderboard as well. He can still be caught however with 2 weeks still to go!
We had a few matchplays this week in the President’s Challenge series with:
Kevin Dobson defeating Diana Budiarti 1 up
Michael Mueller defeating Andrew Goode 6 & 5
Dave Keddington defeating Sami Kekonen 1 up.
Just a reminder for those who have not completed their first round matches to do so next week if possible.
So now we head into our penultimate round at Pondok Cabe next week. Please anticipate the traffic and get there in good time for our mini shotgun, it makes a big difference, thanks in advance. As always, please let Rod know your group preferences as soon as possible.

The Rules and what it means when we play.
Courtesy of fellow Dog, Jens Roestel, R&A First Grade Umpire.
In match play a player hits a shot in a bunker and his ball rebounds off the face of the bunker. The player does not have time to get out of the way and the ball hits his body. The player must play the ball as it lies, but what is the penalty?
A - There is no penalty.
B - The player loses the hole.
C - The player gets one penalty stroke.
Correct answer: A
Explanation: If a player's ball in motion accidentally hits any person or outside influence, including himself, there is no penalty and the ball must be played as it lies.
A player is asked to lift her ball, which lies just off the putting green, as it is on her opponents line of play. She is allowed to clean the ball without penalty.
A - False
B – True
Correct answer: A
Explanation: When a ball is lifted from a part of the course other than a putting green because it interferes with play, cleaning is not allowed.
The nearest point of complete relief may be nearer the hole than the ball's original spot.
A - True
B – False
Correct answer: B
Explanation: A Nearest Point of Complete Relief is never closer to the hole.
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.
This week we visited ANZA's house to hand over the collections from our Modern Tournament. They were very kind and appreciative of our support. Donations from D.O.G.S. were enough to sponsor 7 children's education! Well done everyone! Special thanks to Ruth Lajousky for connecting us. You can check out more details, including progress reports of the children on our Charity page.
Look for our charity barrel after each round.
Please note, players are not expected to donate every week; our goal is 1 donation of 100K per player per tournament. The donations are given to a worthy charity at the end of each tournament.
Rancamaya has been booked and the rounds are on our schedule. This year JAWS will be joining the D.O.G.S./Tee Set weekend and we have turned it into a 3 day affair. Check out details on our dedicated page.
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 firstname.lastname@example.org
