Sunday saw us head down to the home of the Tee Set World Cup, Riverside for our 5th edition of this now, very popular event. At the starting gate we had 19 teams vying to succeed the UN team of Mark Fiorello, Jude Alexander, Billy Viriava and Jaco Zaayman as winners after they finally manage to wrestle the trophy off the 3-time defending Champions, Srikandi, last year.
In addition to our 19 teams, we had a group of 5 players who joined us just for the fun of the day and the 81 players were treated to an excellent day of golf. Our start was planned for 12pm to enable us to have the course to ourselves and the Riverside team did a wonderful job of sorting out all the arrangements to get us off on time, in the right groups and on the right holes.! With the weather being sunny, the course playing hard and fast and only a gentle wind, we were all able to get round in good time so that the prize-giving could be done early, leaving plenty of time to share what might have been.
In addition to the Riverside team, our appreciation to our friends from DOGS, Sentul Swingers, Tee Drivers and JAWS who came out to support the day. We hope to see many of you back next Sunday at the scramble….
A big thank you to Event Supremos Craig Edwards and Jens Roestel who did a super job in getting so many teams signed up, to Dan Javier and PT Delta for their support on the prizes and Alastair Livingston for his support in getting the scores entered with minimal delay. As you will note from the prize-giving below, there were just rewards from the golfing gods for most of these efforts!
Some excellent scores with 8 players breaking 80 gross on the day, a feast of birdies (26 players) and a lone eagle on the last to Giles Taarland. Many players were at or below their net par with a special mention to Paud Daud (64) and Tribhuvan Singh (65) for their excellent returns and no surprise, these helped their teams to the top 2 placings in the standings.
For the non-world cup competitors, we gave a prize for low net among the 5 players with Christine Lie being the winner of a sleeve of balls. Our skill prize winners were Fitrat Ameer for NTP and Rosie Putri and Bayu Juluis for LD.
Dan Javier was called up to present the prizes along with Bill Lloyd and his first order of business was to present to himself as the PT Delta Force team (Dan, Jude Alexander, Marcelo de Jesus and Ronald Lim) placed 3rd in the net competition. Second in the net competition was Jai Ho (Vinay Mathur, Tribuhvan Singh, Holger Molendyk and Shashvat Pandey). Also not having to move far was VP Bill Lloyd who’s team Old Glory (Bill, Richard Mau, Mark Souders and David Baglivo) placed 2nd in the gross competition.
No less surprised than themselves, the winners came from the event organizers with Men at Work (Paud Daud, Craig Edwards, Craig Ewers and a reluctant Aussie for the day, Andy Hyndman) winning the net competition and the Kilted Warriors (Phil Murray, Doug McQuater, Roger Finnie and Peng Siong) winning the gross competition – both by narrow margins.
A huge thank you to everyone again for making the day such a success and below are the final standings.
