Half way through the calendar year but only a month back to some normalcy in our weekly arrangements, Sunday saw 42 tee setters turn out for June’s monthly medal at the ever popular Cengkareng; although one card was missing at the end giving us 41 returns for the prize-giving.
A bright but overcast day with a strong blustery breeze ensured that the course generally got the better of us this visit with unusually only a small number of players at or below net par by the end of the day. Nevertheless, we were round in good time and able to enjoy the excellent hospitality of the Cengkareng team with the ladies leading the festivities after we had finished.
A warm welcome to Andrew Hyndman and welcome backs to Rosie Putri, JP Seveke, Steve Sutton and Dave Barnes all after 18 weeks. Thanks to Craig Edwards for taking the lead with the morning pairings and registrations and to Michael Seabrook for helping VP Ric Wymer with the scoring entries post round.
Fresh from glory a couple of weeks back, Michael Seabrook was again staring in the prize giving albeit this week for Monster Putter and Most Strokes; he narrowly avoided the trifecta with the skirt being shared by newcomer Andrew Hyndman, Mark Johnson, Rob Nicholls, James Bristow and Indar Dhaliwal. Andrew was however able to recover his fine with First Par for handicaps >=30 whilst Most Improved went to Lis Wymer.
Michael Seabrook also recovered his fine with First Birdie, First Sandy went to Craig Edwards and Low Putts ended in a 5-way tie between Doug McQuater, Dave Barnes, Jude Alexander, Matt Roberts and Marcelo de Jesus.
Low Gross on the day went to Simon Reynolds whilst Ian Pemberton, Juju Juhaeriah and Cucu Chandra took home Low Nets.
In the Month Medal skill prizes, the Wymers took home NTP mens and ladies whilst Dave Prosser and Rosie Putri took out the Long Drives.
Our monthly medalist, medal to be presented next time the President is there, was Leon Bivolaru who pipped the ladies with an excellent return of 41 points. Congratulations to all our winners and detailed results are here: Cengkareng 0620 Results
Tee Set Match Play Championships
3 more games were completed on Sunday. Completing the first knock-out round saw Dave Barnes pip Dave Prosser 1up after Jens Roestel had beaten Tim Knight 5&4 the previous week at Riverside and Chris Lever had received a walk-over due to continuing work restrictions placed on Graham Parsonage which prevented him from being able to complete his match.
In the second knock-out round, Simon Reynolds outlasted Timo Karonen to win on the 19th hole whilst Leon Bivolaru beat Craig Edwards 8&7.
Thank you to everyone for their support in helping us get all first round matches completed by Sunday and a good head-start on catching up with the next round as we are few weeks behind. The updated schedule for the remaining rounds of the competition is now set out on the website and the next deadline is 26th July.
