Hail The D.O.G.S.!!!!!,
Huge number for our 2nd round at Pondok Cabe with 60 scorecards submitted. Pocksia joining us for a friendly match certainly contributed to this. Despite the large crowd and the course hosting a tournament prior to our start, proper preparation by all, including D.O.G.S. Captain Simon Oxley and Pocksia Captain Roger Finnie, made for a smooth start with groups teeing off at the appointed tee time.
The pace moved quick and waiting was kept to a minimum. Half way through the second nine the beautiful sunny skies turned ominously black. Heavy rain, thunder and lightning soon followed. Many players (the smart ones) headed for the club house; the hearty ones (read less smart) continued play and were rewarded with a good soaking. Good effort to Mark Johnson, Jon Huston, Robert Watt and John Slack who waited out the rain on the course and then finished up their match while everyone else was enjoying the festivities in the club house.
Following play Roger Finnie, Craig Edwards, Ric Wymer, Glen Menyennett and Divya Ahuja barbecued up some delicious burgers prepared by Jayson's Meats along with South African Sausage acquired by Glen. Thank you guys and Werner Jayson for preparing the burgers.
Results for the day revealed a 4-4 tie in the match play which allowed Pocksia to hang onto the trophy due to their inaugural win in 2017.
One of the D.O.G.S. new pastimes is trying to guess which Dave "Jekyll & Hyde" Prosser will show up on game day; this week it was Dave the single digit handicapper showed up, taking home both Longest Drive and making 12 points of improvements in 17 holes of play. Nabil Wareeth took home his second consecutive Putting Champion award and Xander Watt was a double winner of Bobby Prize and Most Exercise; stick around for your prizes next time Xander. Roger Finnie was our Lowest Gross for the 2nd week in a row and Tahir Chaudry had to settle for 1st Runner Up with Pocksia member Ruth Lajousky beating him out on countback for Weekly Champion.
Full results can be found on our Leaderboard.
Once the weekly prizes were handed out we took the opportunity to catch up on outstanding awards. Richard Mau collected his Lowest Gross trophy and top 10 balls for his efforts at Modern.
Fernando Gaggino and Rauf Chaudry received their well deserved Blue Jackets. Welcome to the club gentlemen your are both looking smart in your new jackets!
Thank you to Pocksia for joining us, let's do this again, Sarah Brown for her continued organizing efforts Kevin Dobson and Craig Edwards for making sure game days run smoothly.
