Hail the D.O.G.S.!!!!!
A total of 58 players turned out for our second round of this Eclectic series and the annual D.O.G.S. vs POCKSIA match play competition. 23 POCKSIA and 35 D.O.G.S. players, with a few overlaps made up the numbers. The weather wasn’t as kind as it could have been, with a continuous light drizzle and occasional heavy rain bursts. However it didn’t disrupt play and we got off on time with a full shotgun start thanks to the management of Pondok Cabe who essentially closed the course for us.
Both societies fielded 8 two person teams for the match play games but more on that later.
Following the round Nyetik BBQ had delicious hamburgers waiting for us which were thoroughly enjoyed by all while the results were being compiled.
Avnish Patankar brought along some samples of his Microgreens product to taste. Everyone agreed the were very good. See Avnish directly for more information on them.
In the regular D.O.G.S. round of the Eclectic series, for which all players were eligible, young Shlok Rajeev took both a Nearest to the Pin and Longest Drive prize. Alex MacGregor taking the other Nearest to the Pin and Sami Kekonen the other Longest Drive honours. The Drive & Pitch prizes were taken by Mike Webb, who had gone over to the dark side by playing for POCKSIA, and David Moore.
Uncharacteristically Ezra Alexander won the Booby Prize; he must have had other things on his mind!. Bill Lajousky saw more of the golf course than anyone else taking the Most Exercise award.
Dave Keddington’s putter was clearly working, or he just missed a lot of greens, making him this week’s Putting Champion. Actually, maybe he did hit all the greens in regulation as he also took the Lowest Gross honour yet again.
Count backs are almost becoming the norm these days with Diarmuid Flanagan missing out on the top prize and taking the Runner Up position with Alex MacGregor winning his first Little Dog to become this week’s Champion.
Congratulations to all of this week's winners!
