Hail the D.O.G.S.!!!!!
Permata Sentul turned on another beautiful day for our penultimate round and Pocksia competition. As always, it was a pleasure to host our mates from Pocksia who turned up in force to bolster the numbers to a total field of 44 players for the day.
Pocksia brought 18 eager players to the course so 18 erstwhile Dogs were nominated to represent the good guys. Format was total of the 10 best Stableford scores from each group.
There were a few sore heads and sorer bodies, from the Asian Tiger’s 45 Hole Challenge the previous day, in the clubhouse enjoying the pre-game preparations when the Starter rushed to push us out at 11:30.
The course is in great condition and as we near the end of dry season every shot gave a good run for its money. The grunting and groaning off the 2 starting tees was a give away to the 45 hole stalwarts who were backing up.
Looks like the greens have settled down from the aeration they were finishing 5 weeks ago and there was pretty good scoring all around the course. At the end of the day the spoils for the D.O.G.S. Prizes were split fairly evenly between the two groups, but it was Simon Oxley who cleaned up with a Drive & Pitch, Lowest Putts (27) and the Little Dog – 78 off the stick has got to be a Good Day (not -) at the Office! A late submission by Richard Mau saw him sneak past Simon for Lowest Gross with a 77!
Everyone wants to be near Weekly Champion Simon Oxley!
Mark "Dirty" Johnson and James Bristow tied for the Lowest Net with Deemples handicap coming in at 71. Congratulations! We'll get you your hats next week gents.
As the D.O.G.S. were playing their fifth week at the course they had a bit of an advantage which was used to full measure to win the D.O.G.S.-Pocksia trophy by a score of 361 to 332. A great day was enjoyed by all; let’s do it again soon.
