Hail the D.O.G.S.!!!
A record 72 players turned out for our third round at Pondok Cabe - a fantastic achievement and a huge Thank You to all. With such a great turnout the club decided to significantly restrict non-Dogs players so we just about had the course to ourselves. A shotgun start got us off on time and, apart from a short shower early on in the round, the weather was good and everyone was finished and back in the club house in good time.
A few newcomers to welcome this week: Aryan and Punit Gambhir, Stephen and Devie Nye, Oscar Garcia, Sari Smith and Dewi Williams ( yey!!!) as well as some faces we haven't seen for a while, Adrian Scholten, Anna Eriksson, Ed Long, Max and Sri Sollfrank back from their travels, Sally Deane and Hitoshi for his first outing since breaking his ankle - actually I think it was just an excuse as he still shot an 82 off the stick! - not to worry though as his medical team did manage to somewhat deplete his whisky stocks.
With 72 scores I must sincerely thank everyone who inputted their scores into the mygolf2u app. That makes the finalization of the scores so much quicker and easier as was shown by the fact we were into the prize giving still during the daylight hours. I would encourage all to follow suit - thanks again.
So to the play: MC Kevin Dobson appears on the prize-winning list this week taking one of the Nearest to the Pin honours, the other going fellow Aussie Dean Merrilees. Axel Hertzke and Anirudh Katre had their drivers working taking the Longest Drive prizes with newcomer Sari Smith and Andrew Goode the Drive & Pitch prizes - ooh by the way we found the Drive & Pitch flag from hole 13 which was lost last week and saw John Brown's name on it - can you believe that!
Gaurav Shirke missed all the greens resulting in him being this week's Putting Champion. This week the Booby Prize and Most Exercise Trophy's were split between Susan Bruce and Devie Nye.
Gaurav Shirke still managed a 75 gross despite him finishing bogey bogey to take the Lowest Gross prize. A count back was required to determine this week's Weekly Champion and Runner Up with Michael Taylor unfortunately having to settle for the Runner Up making newcomer Aryan Gambhir our Little Dog winner - congratulations!
A big congratulations to all our winners!
So we are now at the half-way stage of this Eclectic Series with things starting to heat up at the top. We have a new leader after this week - some say he's been partying in disguise as a photo of the suspect was taken as posted on the Chatter group - for those who have not seen that please check this out!
For more clues, please check out the full standings on our Leaderboard page or in the mygolf2u app. There's still a long way to go.
So next week we head into the fourth round and our annual matchplay against our old rivals POCKSIA. Captain Dougy will be announcing the teams shortly so please look out for that. There will be Bloody Marys available before the round and a BBQ immediately afterwards at the club for a modest charge of IDR 200.000. Please let us know if you intend to partake of the BBQ so we can cater accordingly.
We will have a full shotgun start next week as Pondok Cabe have agreed to close the course for us so please be there in good time to get to your starting holes.
So, as we say, grab a friend and sign up now for next week and don't forget to let Rod know your preferred playing partners.
