With Tee Set’s regular Sunday coinciding with the return from a 4 month enforced hiatus for the Jakarta Inter-League, 73 players descended on Riverside this week with 44 of them choosing to also join the Tee Set competition, making it a bumper day all round. With social distancing measures still on place, despite starting on time with a mini-shotgun, there was a fairly long gap between the front starters and those last out so thank you to all the players for their patience and to the Riverside team for doing their best to keep everything smooth and get us out as early as possible.
Out on the course, the weather was perfect for golf and the course played well ensuring that fully a third of the field returned scores at or below net par off the white tees which were being played on Sunday.
A warm welcome to Sari Smith who joined us for the first time. Thank you to Ric Wymer and Jens Roestel for their assistance during registrations and more importantly, the scoring whilst the rest of us enjoyed a few refreshments. All in all a good day with the major hiccup being the camera taking a rest day so we missed being able to post all the photos taken during the day and at the prize-giving…
Making it 3 skirts from 3 weeks, Andy Hyndman was up for the photo where he was joined by Benedikt Blenk and Dimitri Burge. Andy was able to recover his fine with First Par handicaps >=30 as was our Monster Putter and Most Strokes winner Frank Eschenhagen who also won Most Improved.
Divya Ahuja won first Sandy and Marcelo de Jesus took home Low Putts. A 3 way prize for First Birdie with Keith Gorman, Paul Daud and Philip Schaferdieck all starting well whilst Dave Prosser secured our lone eagle on the day for his prize.
Ian Pemberton continued his fine form for Low Net where he was joined by Tribhuvan Singh and Reni Riley. Low Gross was shared between Tee Set Captain Simon Reynolds and President Roger Finnie.
