the day that was 31st December 2020

Here are some things you can do in six hours: fly to Jayapura; watch Lord of the Rings Trilogy; or participate in a JAWS New Years Eve matchplay round at Matoa National Golf Course.  

For the 48 Sharks who joined the two-ball scramble, there was no question on the choice.  In spite of the crowded course and long round, lots comradery and laughter made for a fantastic day.

The early start greeted the 12 flights with good weather and a rainbow to welcome in 2021. 

 There was fantastic team spirit that answered a number of outstanding questions. Simon and Karfunkel’s greatest hits is more than just an album. 

 Zed is not dead.  Vanilla & Choco is more than just a drink.  Tinkerbell really can fly.   Associated Press is not fake news.  

The Charlie in Not Tiger & Charlie is a Charlie.   

and then there was Divya, the luckiest man ever to have the company of 3 women in his flight.  

He was inspired by great finesse, charm and talent. This helped him exude his male prowler.  

Amazing and dazzling the women with his long shots and fantastic putts, Iris had some great saves and lead from the front to make some great Pars but together the team of Vanilla & Choco fell short as they missed and grazed holes at least on 6 holes for birdies.

The Mouseketeer’s “50 Shades of Green” were clever and won best dressed and enjoyed the weather and a not so precision round, but with great efforts on putting from Diana and some lovely shots from Rosie.

Good to see the women team up and be in strong contention with poor lone ranger Divya.  

All the teams gave it their all with net scores ranging from 64 to 76. 

A big thanks to everyone who came out to celebrate and a big Happy New Year from all in the JAWS Admin.  We are looking forward to lots of fun golf in 2021.

Last but not least thank you to the team at Matoa GC and Mba Wenny for accommodating us.

Well Played  to the Winners
