A warm sunny Sunday and our Monthly Medal event saw 42 Tee Setters turn out for our regular end of month visit to the excellent Cengkareng. The course was in great condition and the greens running a little faster than recent visits so we all enjoyed a good day out whilst being well looked after by the Cengkareng team and management.
A warm welcome to Ronnie Knowles and Andy Gillan who joined us for the first time and notable welcome backs to Andy Vincent, Ezra Alexander, Karl Park and Matthew Marakenko.
A big thank you to Craig Edwards who managed all the pairings and registrations in the morning whilst the Committee had a side-bar meeting on arrangements for the next couple of weeks and VP Ric Wymer who managed the scoring and prize-giving as the President went home early to recuperate following a long night after Saturday’s St Andrew’s vs St George’s match. Photos of the day are here.
A rusty Andy Vincent took some time to adjust to the greens so took home our Monster Putter and the tricky conditions were reflected in the number contenders for the prize. Andy was however to recover his touch on the back 9 and win Most Improved. Mike Riley edged Most Strokes and our skirt photo was shared by Gaurav Shirke, Holger Molendyk, Jude Alexander, Mike Riley and Tom Grace.
Doug McQuater was our first Sandy and Ruth Lajousky birdied the First to take that prize. Juju Juhaeriah was our Low Putter saving the Treasurer’s blushes by beating 5 others who were just a putt behind. Low Gross went to President Roger Finnie.
Our Low Net winners were James Bristow, Sami Kekonen and Tom Grace whilst our Monthly Medal skill prizes saw James and Juju up again for their Long Drives and Sami for NTP.
Pipping Sami and James who tied second on 40 points was our Monthly Medal winner Karl Park who scored 42 points to secure July’s honours.
Congratulations to all our winners and detailed results are here: Cengkareng July20 Results
Sunday was also the end of Eclectic XII but the scores have yet to be input to calculate the winner so this will be announced at our next event.
Tee Set Match Play
Sunday being the last date for the current round saw a couple of games played with David Baglivo using his hot start to win 5&4 over Chris Lever whilst in a match of fluctuating fortunes on the front 9, Mark Johnson recovered from an early deficit to win 4&3 over Leon Bivolaru. Please remember to submit your scores to our Match Play Supremo, James Ross, to make the results official.
