Hail the D.O.G.S.!!!!!,
Another good showing at Senayan with 23 players coming out for a hit. The club was once again well prepared for us, getting play underway with a well ordered start. Pace throughout the round was quick as has been the case most of the weeks.
Brett Shields was back with us after a long layoff from the D.O.G.S. and Andy Coop was freshly back from his walkabout in the land of Oz.
Welcome to Marisa Deparina, Terence Martin, Pungky and Setya Sudarsana who joined us for their first D.O.G.S round. Thank you for coming out; we look forward to seeing you at our future rounds.
Once again the newbies weren't shy about getting prizes with Marisa Deparina taking a Nearest to Pin. Jari Antikainen took to other along with a Longest Drive for his big hit on 5. Just to let the men know they aren't the only big hitters Sarah Brown took Longest Drive on 11. Andy Abram's putting was in good form allowing him to win Putting Champion but instead of another crown he had to settle for Runner Up as Parman Frans took the Weekly Champion prize and the Little Dog that goes with it.
Congratulations to all of our winners! Full results can be viewed on our Leaderboard.
Going into our Penultimate round Gaurav Shirke is leading the pack; with only 4 points separating 1st to 10th place and 3 former Champions hot on his heals it won't be easy to stay at the top.
The Lowest gross competition is starting to take shape, this will be a race not decided until the final week for sure.
Get a group together or come on out yourself and join us for the last 2 weeks of city golf.

Match against JAWS
JAWS the new guys on the Jakarta golf scene will be joining us on our September 5 game at Permata Sentul for a friendly match. Team Captain Doug McQuater is looking to put together the winning team. Please let him or us know if you would like to represent the D.O.G.S.
