We were lucky to be able to stage our first Tee Set Monthly Medal for several months – 46 players, held thanks to the generous sponsorship of Kojo, but with no presentation or photos, so Jon Rahm helped us out with some of his recent snaps.
Our winner this month does share one similarity with Jon Rahm, an abbreviated back swing, ok perhaps the occasional long range putt. He is not known for his celebratory fist pumps or 300+ yard bombs, but he was clearly getting something right this week with a net 65, 3 strokes clear of the runner up. I did see signs he was finding some form last week, and great to see it held together for two strong nines particularly the front nine (37 gross, 31 net). Note that this was an historic win, the first since we changed the format of Monhtly Medals to net strokeplay after years of it being stableford. So it is only fitting that an historic person was the winner……
Yes, congratulations Mark Johnson, the September 2021 Tee Set Monthly Medallist.
Four players were tied for second, forcing a count back, which was decided in favour of Timo, followed by Ezra, Sami and Holger. Former Tee Set Vice President and Bevage Trophy winner and now JAWS Captain, Simon, was welcomed back with a fine round of 75 and Low Gross for the day. Reigning Tee Set Champion, Cucu, led the ladies in with a very strong net 70.

Thanks to Roger, Geoff and Bill for putting the day together and to the Club, as usual, for such a great job balancing golf and great service with all of the health protocols. Any problems players had with the app were ironed out, although there was a report of scores being wiped during the round, so let us know about anything like this by email and we will work through it.
Coming Up: Sunday 3rd October 2021, Gading Raya
A change of scenery this week, but we are still not ready to return to presentations and gatherings, so sign up through the MyGolf2U app and we will go from there. The format will be stableford. Ladies will be playing off red tees and gents off preferred tees – white or blue depending how you want to play the course.
Whether you choose white or blue tees, please make sure to enter the correct tee box when opening the app to start scoring. This will generate your correct handicap for the course and tee box. At the end of the competition, all scores will be stableford.
Tee Set Committee Nominations
Thanks for the nominations to date and we hope they will keep coming to email@example.com. Nominations will close two weeks before the Championships, 14th November, to allow the new Committee to form and work out what gets put to Tee Setters at the Championships.
