Heavy rain, thunder, sirens blaring, crowded tees.  For the 27 Sharks it just another typical Friday afternoon at Matoa Nasional Golf Course!  

The seven flights took off just after noon as the storm clouds loomed ominously.  Most were into their 5th or 6th hole when the heavens opened up and the sirens of death wailed.  

The delay was short however.  Just long enough to have a cheeky beer or coffee and head back out to do what Sharks do.  The results were net scores ranging from 69 to 89 and lots of laughter and stories on the 19th hole.  

A shout out to Veronika for bringing us a big box of freshly made pastels.  Lezat! A big thanks to all who came out and made it an incredible fun day that went into the night. 


Starting on hole 10 were Geoff, Chris, Bram and Albert. Geoff was slow off the blocks but once several refreshing Bintangs were consumed, he became fully charged and played some great golf.

His poor start cost him in the end though. Bram showed that he has a superb swing and has the potential to be a low handicapper. He showed glimpses of his potential on the round but was too inconsistent especially with his short game.

Albert started off with his driver but found that this club was unreliable and he later reverted back to his 3 wood and played mostly bogey golf and, as a consequence, his golf and scoring improved.

Chris played well, especially on the back nine with a gross 43. A few wild drives however cost him with several triples. Despite a short period of rain, the group had lots of laughs and fun on the golf course.

Teeing off from Hole #12 were the Sharks: Richard Berg, Veronika, 17-year old Jang Hyun Ji and Admin Simon Reynolds. 6-Handicapper Richard, was excited to be back in play after some time on the sidelines recovering from a slipped disc.

Interesting to have three male single handicaps playing from three different generations: a six and two seven’s making up the flight. Richard looked sharp as always in his shiny black footjoy tour shoes.  He had an up and down round which was understandable after two months of not playing. As the round progressed the 6 handicap began to shine through, and his smooth tempo settling in as per normal, helped keep the youngsters in the flight calm, welcome back Richard!  

Veronika armed with a new XXIO Driver, was in good company, and was generous as ever bringing a box of freshly baked pastels for the flight which went down a treat in the grey, gloomy and wet weather, any left overs were quickly mopped up in the clubhouse by some feeding Sharks.

The New Driver looks like a good investment with longer distance off the tee and better accuracy, the 28 handicapper, relatively new to the game is developing a solid swing and lower score are beginning to show step by step. Great to see a 17-year old Junior joining us for a JAWS game, and with a 7 handicap a great addition to the diverse group of Sharks. At 185 cm and still growing, this kid has game hitting a powerful high and low draw off the tee and with his irons not to mention a good touch with his wedges and putter. After an ordinary first nine 5 over, 3 birdies on the back nine including a birdie, birdie finish resulting in a 76 gross and nett 69 and Best Nett 1 honors for the day.

Looking forward to JHJ’s return to Jakarta as he returns back to Incheon South Korea next week after his family golfing holiday in Jakarta.  Admin Simon, was clearly excited, teeing off with two other singles. Solid off the tee, Simon consistently hit his tee ball long and in play allowing him to fire at the greens with his irons. Unfortunately, his irons let him down and not enough greens in regulations put too much pressure on his chipping and short game to save par and many occasions. His wedge play and putting stood to the test getting up and down more times then not allowing him a cheeky Best Nett 6 74 and some pocket money to buy a couple of beers.

1st 4 some going off on the 1st hole was Cucu, Tom, Giles and Jim. Jim started off ok with 4 bogeys but struggled on and off of the tee box all day.  Tom seemed to be playing an average round all day.

A very straight player. Giles hit the ball like a mad man with some drives over 290 yards played a great front nine but struggled on the back nine with 8 bogeys. But still had a great game   

Then there was 1.  Cucu was straight off of the tees and had 9 one putts. She had a great game with a 72 net and took 3rd place on the JWS Leaderboard. Congratulations!

Yudhi, Yasing and Punjung were challenged by the weather conditions but all found momentum as the game progressed.  

Yasing started off strong with straight drives hitting two pars on the first three holes but struggled on the last six holes of the first nine as the rain hit but then picked up his game again on the back nine just missing birdies for pars.   Joining a little late, Yudhi found some early struggles that were tough to recover from with errant shots that went far left.  Punjung hit and impressive birdie with a blind shot from the fairway and an elevated green.  The ball rolled up and stopped a half foot from the hole.  He almost did it again on the last hole ending an impressive round and the number one spot on the JAWS Leaderboard.  Good job! 

The 7th Flight, Imran, Fadli & Abdul Razak went straight to the 10th hole to tee off. Three balls were nicely hit into in the middle of the smooth fairway as a result of solid and smooth impact on the driver.

Both Fadli & Abdul Razak struggled to reach the green while Imran’s 2nd shoot landed nicely on the green. It was a birdie for Imran and, unfortunately, the only birdie on the day as he struggled with his iron shots and putter which cost him a lot of unnecessary strokes.

Fadli & Abdul Razak, who are close friends, demonstrated the true meaning of friendship. Most of their balls from tee off landed close to each other. They also shared the same final score at the end of the round. What a true friendship they have.

TPS, Yu Ji Hong, Yu Min Young, and John all found time to laugh in between rain delays and oversized flights playing in front.   Like father, like daughter.  

It was impressive to watch both Yu Ji Hong and Yu Min Young play with their effortless swings that more often than not led the ball to where it was supposed to go.  Yu Min Young couldn’t quite getting her putter going well enough to be in contention.  Yu Ji Hong had a few errant drives that led to trouble and kept him out of contention.  

TPS had a day.  He started out strong and finished stronger.  Hitting beautiful drives all day he never found and real trouble and was rewarded with the number 2 spot on the JAWS Leaderboard.  John never found any momentum.  Aside from a few good drives, he struggled on his short and long games.  Enough said on that.
