D.O.G.S. Second Round at Jagorawi Golf & Country Club

Hail the D.O.G.S.!!

So to our second round at Jagorawi Golf & Country Club with 40 players joining. Again, the course was dry and the greens fast - at least on the New Course. Good weather and the dry conditions continue making the challenge even more demanding but hey, that's what we love, isn't it? Our usual few newcomers: Anthony Nazareth, Bas van del Dool and Rutger Scheer, and welome back to Sustanty and Graeme Bruce. Good to see you all and we hope to see much more of you in the future.

We got off on time again with our usual shotgun from the Z Course and, with a smooth transition onto the New Course, everyone was finished in good time and back in the club house for the usual festivities.

You'd think that playing off the white tees was challenging enough but Captain Dougie and Steve Sutton decided that was too easy and elected to go off the blues - they're really the blacks on most courses. A very brave decision so it will be interesting to see how they fare.

So, to the play: Richard Mau seemed to feature everywhere this week winning one of the Nearest to the pin and Drive & Pitch prizes as well as the Lowest Gross and this week's Runner Up prize - a good day at the office it seems! The other Nearest to the Pin prize was taken by Nicolas Verdenal. The longest drive prizes were taken by Vincent Cousin and newcomer Bas van del Dool. Arne Tjaden was the other Drive & Pitch winner and Leon Bivolaru the Putting Champion - albeit on a count back.

Michael Mueller was his usual all smiles taking the Booby Prize whilst Lukas Musial managed to keep Christian out to win the Most Exercise Trophy.

All this led the way for Renny Verdenal to take the Little Dog and the bottle of wine from the Wine Cartel home becoming our weekly Champion.

Newcomer Bas van del Dool had a good introduction to playing with the D.O.G.S. by shooting an Eagle 3 on the Par 5 on the first hole of the New Course...well played!

A big congratulations to all our winners this week.

So with two rounds complete Richard Mau has taken over the top slot on the Eclectic but he's already nearly at the point where he'll need birdies to improve. So, there's still a lot of golf left in this one as we slowly get used to the course and work out our course management strategy. You can see the full Eclectic results on the Leaderboard page or in the myGolf2u app.

Now we head into the third round so, as we say, grab a friend or more and sign up for next week and don't forget to let Rod know your preferred playing partners. Please also make sure you have confirmed that your preferred playing partners are their preferred playing partners!

Also note that signing up early helps a lot in getting things ready with the club - thanks.

The Rules and what it means when we play.

Jens Roestel

R&A First Grade Umpire.

In stroke play, a player has interference to their stance from an immovable obstruction. They determine their nearest point of complete relief using a five iron (as that is the club he would have used had the immovable obstruction not been

there) and drop the ball within one club-length of that point, no nearer the hole. The ball settles down in the rough, so the player changes club and plays the ball out onto the fairway with a sand wedge.

What is the ruling?

A - There is no penalty.

B - The player gets one penalty stroke.

C - The player gets two penalty strokes

Correct answer A

Explanation: Once the ball is dropped within a club length of any club in the bag (but not the putter), it is back in play. The player must then decide what type of stroke they will make. This stroke, which includes the choice of club, may be different from the one that would have been made from the ball's original spot had the condition not been there.

In stroke play, a player playing from the teeing area misses the ball completely. They push the tee farther into the ground and then play the ball.

What is the ruling?

A - There is no penalty.

B - The player gets one penalty stroke.

C - The player gets two penalty strokes.

Correct answer A

Explanation: If a player’s ball in play lies in the teeing area of the hole to play, they may lift or move the ball without penalty and play it from a tee or the ground anywhere in the teeing area.

Your 2nd shot comes to rest on the green. When putting, you hit the ball too hard and it rolls off the green into a bunker. You deem your ball unplayable and take relief by placing another ball on the putting green where you putted from and

hole the next putt.

What is your score for the hole?

A - 4

B - 5

C – 7

Correct answer B

Explanation: Two shots onto the green, One putt that rolls off the green, One penalty stroke for taking unplayable relief under rule option 19.2a (stroke and distance relief), One putt that is holed, Total = 5 strokes

In stroke play, a player bends some long grass out of the way to get a clear view of their ball in the rough. They then play their next stroke.

What is the ruling?

A - There is no penalty.

B - The player gets one penalty stroke.

C - The player gets two penalty strokes.

Correct answer C

Explanation: By moving the grass the player improved their lie and the area of intended swing.
