Any opportunity to say goodbye to 2020 makes for a good day but doing so at Emerelda Golf Club with 30 Sharks, is extra special.
The 8 flights took out all their 2020 aggressions by whacking away at Plantation and Lake on a beautiful Tuesday morning with net scores ranging from 69 to 85. A big thanks to all who made it out for a fantastic day. Look forward to taking on Emerelda again in the coming year!
Andy Coop, Veronica and Pras teed off from hole no 5 in plantation. It was a long day for all three sharks. Andy, playing off a 6 handicap was struggling to get his long shots to be effective and be in play. Many of his drives were erratic and more than a few times landed him in the sand traps.
He did much better in the back nine where he was able to shoot a 40. Veronica, still learning the ropes of the game, had some good straight shots from the tee and on the fairways. Her problem of the day was just trying to get on the ball on to, and to stay on the greens. She only had 1 par on the day on hole #7 plantation par 3. Pras also had a lot of trouble during the round at Emeralda.
Many of his drivers went to the penalty area, and also the wind caused him to be either short or over the greens. He managed to putt decently but the best that he could that day was scoring a nett 76 for the round.
It was a day of laughter mixed in with swear words for Iris, John, Ikwan and Shash. Iris was, as always, very consistent in her play. Her biggest challenged seemed to be ordering fish while on the course. Shash had some struggle holes but looked really good especially off the tees. His progress is amazing. The rest of the flight was convinced Ikwan wanted a Bali trip as he spent a good part of his day in the sand. He found moments of frustration but also started pounding mammoth drives. John had a few good holes but completely fell apart on the greens missing way too many short putts.
As expected, Irwan, Hari, Guarav and Tarlok all found their share of pars with a few birdies sprinkled in during the day. Irwan looked good on Lake but found Planation and bit more troubling. Tarlok, on the other hand, found his trouble on Lake and not as many pars overall as usual for him on the day.
Gaurav was consistent on the front and the back but not his normal array of pars and birdies. Hari found some trouble on hole 2 Plantation but looked good on Lake giving him as respectable net 69 on the day and a tie for first place on the JAWS Leaderboard.
Ruth, Mi Hwa, Firman and Afandy should have been advertised as the feature group on the day as 3 out of 4 placed on top of the JAWS Leaderboard. Ruth found a consistent game on the front and back with only a few triples on Lake keeping her from hitting the top spot on the JAWS Leaderboard. Mi Hwa really found her stride on Lake with six pars and two bogies. Afandy looked good on Lake and not too bad on Plantation with just a couple of struggle holes. Firman was good on Lake but found his real magic on Plantation with a birdie and four pars. Good day for the all.
Yuris, Mike, Dave and Alberto all found some magic moments along the way. After struggling early on Lake, Yuri hit three pars on the last three holes. Mike hit six solid pars on the day with just a few holes keeping him out of contention.
Alberto found some pars but also some struggle holes. Dave was consistent on the front and back but not at the level he normally plays.
Arief, Widy, Aleksi and Kristyawan all found a bit trouble on the day but also some shinning moments.
Arief kept is consistent with just a few too many doubles keeping him out of contention. Widy found her pars along the way but too many triples as well. Kristyawan had tough first and 5th holes on Plantation but also seven pars on the day. Aleksi looked good on his long game but struggled short but only one triple and one double on the day.
A mixed day for Richie, William, Divya and Antoine. Divya continues his terror on the course hitting 6 pars, and birdie and the 3 spot on the JAWS Leaderboard. Antoine was just missing his pars with lots of bogies and trouble on Lake holes six and seven. Richie stayed consistent on the front and back with only two blow up holes but also plenty of pars and a birdie. William was also consistent on the front and back with just a few too many doubles keeping him out of contention.
Teeing off on Hole # 4 on the Jack Nicklaus Plantation Course were Geoff, Michael and Simon. Simon was quick to notice a scarecrow in the paddy field was wearing a PINK JAWS Golf Shirt similar to the one being worn by Michael, which set the tone for a light and relaxing festive round.
Geoff in a rich vein of form after a nett 64 at Gading Raya with Teeset had a spring to his step. He picked off where he left off at the weekend, striking the ball solidly on the front nine and playing comfortably to his handicap. As the round progressed to the Lake Course, his game started to stall as two costly blow up holes blew the wagon off the rails.
Michael Muller, full of festive cheer and enthusiasm for the game distracted by the scarecrow hit his opening shot into the paddy field, miraculously the ball was playable as it was on a flat area and the ball was chipped out onto the green for a 2 putt bogey, to save what could have been a double. With a new set of irons from Santa in the bag, Michael looked well on course for a podium finish to nett, but like Geoff in the flight found trouble on the Lake Course with two costly doubles. The win was blowing a gale today and several holes were playing very long into the wind, challenging for the more senior players. Simon opened with a scrambling up and down on the first. It was a mixed bag also with two birdies but one too many bogeys. A solid drive of 260m followed by a wedge on Plantation Hole#8 was backed up by a uphill birdie from 20ft, on the 4th hole of the day setup what looked to be a stellar round and a sub-80 round. However, as the wind picked up in the late morning, the pars became more scarce and one too many mistakes cost him some pocket money.
