The day that was ….
After Tuesday’s Great Esacpe from the rain god’s at Gading Raya, the god’s were not so generous here at Cengkareng on Thursday 11th February as 16 JAWS players tee’d it up the day before Chinese New Year to welcome in the year of the Ox.
Cengkareng always goes down well with the JAWS faithful: a walking course in great condition, decent layout, good caddies and excellent friendly service for food and drinks at Mulligan’s Bar in the clubhouse.
Mulligan’s was a real on this occasion as several JAWS player’s stayed long into the night drinking beer and margherita’s and being merry, the ideal medicine after being pummelled by the rain for hours out on the course. WIth a handful of Sharks swimming for dry land before 18 holes were complete, a fair few remained out on the wet fairways’s and hazardous rough: testing their golf games under very wet conditions and several sharks managing to put together very respectable nett scores despite the conditions. The JAWS players who stayed out on course and completed their rounds were rewarded with a practically empty course for most holes as the heavy rain sent most of the afternoon’s golfers running for shelter and the last three holes were played in glorious golden afternoon sunshine: The sun always shines after the rain!
First flight off Hole #1 was the flight of Randy, Tarlok, Parman and Divya, on what was a wet yet fun day out. With long straight drives Parman was on point but the wet conditions and his erratic putting got the better of him on this occasion.
Tralok too started strong but somewhere in between lost his mojo, yet determined for a strong finish he kept grinding away salvaging a respectable nett 76 and best nett 4 on the day . Randy had to bow out after the 12 th hole due to a work call but played consistent par bogey golf until till then. Divya had a bad day at the office with the rain and wet conditions clealry getting to him, and he recorded a forgettable gross score of 92 but kudos to the players who stuck it out until the end.
Wet Wet Wet, were the conditions for Flight 2 of Hole #1: which saw the pairing of Fernando, Murty, Willi G and Gaurav trying their best to overcome.
The group played the most bipolar golf, with brilliance on one hole followed by double pars on the next hole, which seemed to be the pattern for the day for this group. Eventually sense prevailed and on the 11th hole this group decided that they had had enough of the verywet conditions. The warmth of the club house with some chilled beers tilted the decision to take the march back which all four ardent golfers did with a big smile and clearly no regrets.
For the first flight off Hole#10: The day started well for Chris, Aleksi, Priyaji and newcomer Vinnie and especially Aleksi who started with a birdie on hole 10 but the already wet conditions became swampish in places as the rain fell and affected every player’s game.
However Aleksi played well apart from two doubles. He particularly played well on hole one to nine with a Gross 40 and made 4 pars in a row. New player, Vinnie, showed glimpses of his potential with some long drives and accurate chip shots but lacked consistency today.
With more games under his belt, he is sure to improve. Chris played a very steady game. He was driving well, putting and chipping well and only made the odd mistake and shot 2 below his handicap. Priyaji, despite making a few good pars, had too many doubles today mostly caused by some wayward drives and too many putts. Overall the group still managed to have some laughs albeit on a very wet day!
Second flight off Hole #10 was the flight of Aidan, TPS, Willie Noronha and Simon. Aidan got off to a very solid and steady start recording par after par in a display of confident and assertive driving off the tee, good approach play and very good touch on the greens, even on the holes when his iron play let him down, he executed his chips crisply and in full control getting up and down several times for a wet up and down.
As the rain continued to fall he reminisced with his flight members of days paying golf in the rain back in London with fond memories, rain certainly does not effect his play and he revelled in the challenge recording 3 birdies on the day including a long 20-ft birdie on the tricky Par 3, Hole 13.
His solid all round game and composure was rewarded with a Nett 68 and Best Nett Honours for the day. TPS play was hot and cold like the stop start weather, as elements of his game were below bar for a 12 handicap player, his true class and skill was evident in his short game making two spectacular birdies: one a pitch from 25 yards on the Par 3, Hole 17 and a long snaking birdie putt from the fringe downhill on hole #7, one too many double cost him a place in the money.
Willi Noronha armed with a new cutdown TM Sim Max Driver clearly meant business, clearly excited by and confident with the new club, he proceeded to bludgeon the club on nearly every par 4 or 5 leaving his trust worthy 5 wood in the bag, his over reliance on the driver led to a few wayward drives which resulted in a double or bogey or two, but his good putting on the day allowed him to put together a respectable nett 77 in touch weather resulting in a small Best Nett 5 winner’s check.
Simon started off steady with two pars on the opening holes, but his gamed slipped like a wet grip with one to many casual mistakes rushing his putts on several greens with pars turning into bogey’s.
Despite the blips on the scorecards there were several positive points to salvage from the wet day on course, like his exquisite bunker from the deep front-side greenside bunker on hole #6 for a tap-in par and a very satisfying sand-save. He followed it up with a regulation birdie , where a solid 250m no roll drive setup a 100m wedge and a pin-high 6 foot birdie putt which was drained.
All in all, good fun in wet conditions, in very damp course conditions fairways and rough.
Well played to the winners and hats off to the handful of players who completed 18 holes and tested their skills amongst very wet weather, keep up the good spirit!
Congratulations to the Winners:
- Aidan Lopon – Nett 68
- Chris Lever – Nett 70
- Aleksi Tiihonen – Nett 72
- Tarlok Singh – Nett 76
- Willie Noronha – Nett 77

BEHAVIOUR AND RULES
JAWS is a golf society promoting camaraderie and fun on the course but abiding by our societies rules of etiquette we can assure you of a much better and valuable golfing experience for your playing partners and yourself.
Not only must we uphold our reputation as a society at golf courses, don’t forget to value your own reputation as a golfer on and off the golf course.
For more details on JAWS GOLF ETIQUETTES please click the link and here below we start a new exercise of RULES CORNER BY JENS ROESTEL , AS SOME OF YOU MAY KNOW JENS IS A QUALIFIED R&A FIRST GRADE UMPIRE , So the idea here is to help as all learn , understand and follow the rules of the game better
A player put his ball onto the tee and starts his preparation for the stroke. The player touches the ball and it drops down from the tee.
Is it a penalty, when the player put the ball back onto the tee or is it possible to put the ball back onto the tee, because the ball was not in play at that moment?
Answer: Does a ball, which is not in play from the tee or it is touched during stroke preparation, drop from the tee, it can be placed back without penalty.
The ball is in play, after the first stroke is done. (For this the ball does not need to be touched. Once a player intents to hit a ball with a stroke the ball is in play)
The Ball of a player is on the green. The player puts and hits the foot of a caddie of another player, which walks onto the putting line, because the caddie was not concentrated.
Which ruling applies?
- The ball has to be played where it got to a rest, no penalty applied.
- The put has to be replayed from the original putting position.No penalty applied.
- A ball in motion was deflected and the player, who’s caddie was responsible gets 2 strokes penalty
Answer: b) is correct
A ball, which is moving and was played at the green and it is deflected by something, what is not belonging to the game … the stroke is void and has to be replayed from the original position. The caddie does not belong to the game.
Finally, next up is the monthly special event , with free beer from our sponsor San Miguel, we tee it up for the Two Man Scramble at Permata Sentul GC on Tuesday 16th February 2021 , with a 8 am tee off, 18 players have signed up, if you are keen to join this event please sign up asap.
