Hail the D.O.G.S.!!!!!
37 players handed in scorecards on the day where we saw the inaugural D.O.G.S. vs Tee Set vs POCKSIA vs SMoGs match. With POCKSIA running their own tournament concurrently we had a total of 56 players on the course. The first 8 flights had members from each society playing against each other. Fortunately the starter had us going off on Hole 1 and 10 promptly at 11am and all 15 flights were on the course by midday. The weather was very kind to us which helped smooth play with all groups finished well before darkness.
For the D.O.G.S. penultimate round we welcomed newcomers Avnish Patankar, Shyam Datye and Shashat Pandey. Great to see you guys and look forward to you becoming regulars.
The match honours went to TeeSet with D.O.G.S. finishing 3rd Runner Up; we shouldn't be too disappointed though as all Tee Set team members are D.O.G.S. regulars!!! The match details are below.
It was great to have the 4 societies together and many thanks to the Team Captains for all their organizing; D.O.G.S. Dougie McQuater, Tee Set Roger Finnie, POCKSIA Noel Morrow and SMoGs John Slack.
Big thanks also to all those who contributed to our Charity Barrel; funds will go to ISCO following next week’s final round.
Craig Edwards had the pleasure of playing with the ladies; looks like everyone enjoyed the company.
Leon Bivolaru clearly loves the Drive & Pitch taking both honours this week and Gaurav Shirke clearly missed all the greens with his 24 putts making him this week’s Putting Champion. Vinay Mathur can feel a bit hard done by winning the Booby Prize with a whopping 27 points and Kevin Dobson took the Most Exercise. Gary Danskin pretty much secured the Lowest Gross for this eclectic with another 75 off the stick. This week’s Runner Up was Avnish Patankar with 39 points and our Laurie O’Connor proves that consistent ball striking will earn you the title of Weekly Champion with 40 points; we haven’t seen that many points since our first round at Matoa. Thanks once again also to Lily Bristow for her wonderful snacks.
Congratulations to all of our winners! As always full results can be viewed on our Leaderboard.
Before our current 100K game fee the D.O.G.S used to collect fines during each round to fund the prize kitty. This was part of the fun and some players would make a real effort to pile up the fines on their unfortunate playing partners. For various reasons we have moved on from the fines; however, we thought it would be fun to revisit for our final round of the year. For those who aren't familiar with the fines below is the list which will be in play next week. Please bring small money as we will be rounding up to the nearest 100K if change is required when submitting your card.
The eclectic is typically tight at the top. Can Gary get more birdies? Can Gaurav get rid of that double bogie? Can Dave Keddington or James Bristow clear their remaining bogies, or will someone come from behind and take the glory as we have seen before. The best way to find out is to join the fun next week for our final round and End of Year Party.
Last chance to play D.O.G.S. for 2020. Don't miss out! Get up off the couch grab a friend and come on out and join us.
