Hail the D.O.G.S.!!!!!,
33 players turned up for our 4th round at Riverside. In a sign that things are slowly returning to normality, heavy traffic held up many players. We delayed the start as long as possible, but an impending tournament forced us onto the tees and a few players had to find their groups on the course. A big thank you to Riverside for accommodating us and getting everyone out to their groups. The skies were overcast all day and there was some very light rain from time to time, but, as a result, the temperature was very comfortable for golf. Pace of play was steady and everyone was in the clubhouse long before darkness fell.
Welcome back to Nick Maclean and Umi Umay, we're glad to see you both back. Don't be strangers.
Bill Lloyd left us a trail around the course so he could easily be found.
The women were the story of the day with Rey Moore taking a Nearest to Pin, Hana Yusuf winning a Longest Drive, Ruth Lajousky taking a Drive & Pitch, Honey Muang grabbing the Most Exercise and most importantly, Velma Yolanda getting her second Little Dog as Weekly Champion!
Congratulations to all of this week's winners.
Full Eclectic results can be found on our Leaderboard.
The first finalist for the President's Challenge was determined with Juju Juhaeriah getting past Dave Prosser 2 & 1. Next week Tim Knight and David Moore will be looking to punch their ticket to the final, which will coincide with our final round of the year.
Going into our Penultimate round Dave Keddington remains in 1st place with Shawn Berg and Tribhuvan Singh tied for 2nd. Dave, only has 1 par left to get and Shawn is away, so the money should be on TPS but the rest of the pack is hot on his heels.
Two weeks to go before we end the year with our End of Year Party. Don't miss your chance to play. Grab a friend and sign up for our Penultimate round.

Question: A strong gust of wind causes a player's ball to move on the putting green before they have had a chance to mark, lift and replace the ball. The player must replace the ball on the original spot.
Explanation: If natural forces (such as wind or water) cause the player's ball at rest to move, there is no penalty and the ball must be played from its new spot. There is an
exception to this, which states that if the ball on the putting green moves after it had already been lifted and replaced, the ball must be replaced on its original spot. However, as the ball had not been lifted, that does not apply here.
Question: A player makes a practice swing and accidentally moves their ball in play on the fairway with their club. What is the ruling?
Player receives one penalty stroke and 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.
There is no penalty but the player must replace the ball
Explanation: If a player causes the ball in the general area to move without making a stroke there is a one stroke penalty.
Question: A player who damages their putter in anger after the first hole may continue to use the putter without penalty for the rest of the round.
Explanation: If a conforming club is damaged during the round, a player may
continue to make strokes with the damaged club for the rest of the round.
