2021 Singgasana JAWS World Cup Round 2 – ‘Foursomes’ Format of Play

April 9th, 2021 at Emeralda Golf Club: River and Lake Courses

After a gruelling first round encounter of the Singgasana JAWS World Cup in February at Sentul Highlands Golf Club in Early February 2021 which saw both teams respectively score 20 points a piece, the Team Captains made a joint decision to relocate the event to Emeralda Golf Club and Arnold Palmer’s River and Lake Championship Nine Hole layouts. The decison was based on player and captains feedback regarding the playing conditions of Sentul Highlands Golf Club over the course of months running up to the February game date, as multiple greens and fairway areas had been ripped up for maintenance work or renovations. Therefore the course was not providing suitable playing standards for a competitive event like the Singgasana JAWS World Cup.

Round 2 was a shift in format from ‘singles’ to ‘foursomes’ otherwise known as alternate shot, with team members teeing off on alternating holes or odds and evens hole numbers. Golf as a sport, infamous for its classification as an individual sport, becomes all the more intruiging when played as a team with handicaps and strategies combining for players looking to play and outfox each other with 28 clubs and not 14, or 4 four hands and not 2. Bringing the ‘teamwork’ element to this lonely sport makes it more challenging as players compete as a team hitting alternate shots as they navigate through the 18 holes from start to finish combining the talents and strategy of two players to outplay their competitors in hole by hole matchplay.

Team Captains: Asia Gaurav Shirke and ROW Willi Goldschimdt were hardwork with the help of their vice-captains: Pras Sutowo (Asia) and Chris Lever (ROW) in selecting the right balance and combination of players and handicaps to go into battle.  

All matches were played in good spirits and sportsmanship on a championship course in pristine condition with the handling of Emeralda’s slick greens proving critical in the outcome of Round 2’s matches.

Round 2 saw the Rest of the World gather some momentum winning 13 points opposed to Asia’s 7 points with some big performances by the ROW’s bandits on the day to subdue Asia’s sharpest sharks. The result on the day leaves the score at 33-27 in favour of The Rest of the World. 

With a long break due to Covid-19 and various lockdown’s, Round 3 was postponed several times and with the situation improving Team Asia and Team Rest of the World look forward to resuming proceedings at Emeralda Golf Club on Friday 15th October, with the format of: ‘Fourball’ a.k.a Better ball, pairs. 

Good luck to all Teams for the match! Play well and play fair!

The Results of the Day: Foursomes

May the best team of Sharks win !!!


The JAWS WORLD CUP presented by SINGGASANA Hotels & Resorts format is inspired from the Ryder Cup format of Fourball, Foursomes and Singles matches, so how does it work… 

FOURBALL– In fourball, each member of a two-man team plays his own ball, so four balls are in play on every hole. Each team counts the lowest of its two scores on each hole, and the team whose player has the lowest score wins the hole. If the low scores are tied, the hole is halved.

FOURSOMES-In foursomes, each two-man team plays one ball per hole with the players taking turns until each hole is complete. Players alternate hitting tee shots, with one leading off on odd-numbered holes, and the other hitting first on even-numbered holes. The team with the low score on each hole wins that hole. If their scores are tied, the hole is halved.

SINGLES-In singles, each match features one player from each team. The player with the lower score on each hole wins that hole. If their scores are tied, the hole is halved.


Asia – Captain, Gaurav Shirke +919999659844 or Pras Sutowo , Vice Captain , +6281212463485

Rest of the world – Captain, Willi Goldschmidt +628119515888 or Chris Lever, V Captain, +6287878714019


Maximum points to be won on the day is 40 by any team – if match is halved both teams get 1 point each 

Total 4 rounds – maximum points to be won is 120

Team that crosses 61 points wins the tournament .

TOTAL 16060120



Designed by Arnold Palmer and Jack Nicklaus, this 27-hole venue has played host to several Indonesian Opens, the Johnnie Walker Super Tour, Dunhill Asian Masters and the Volvo Masters Asia.

Comprising of the Lake Nine and the River Nine, the Palmer-designed 18 is a playable, expertly maintained layout that challenges the player while never beating him up. The Plantation Nine at Emeralda was meant to be the front nine of the 18-hole Jack Nicklaus design. Only nine completed, but the Nicklaus nine remains a sterling loop. Many golfers prefer to mix one nine from each of the two designers represented to come up with one of the best composite courses in Indonesia. Where else can you play both a Palmer and Nicklaus course in the same round?


February 5th 2021 – singles matches – 20 players a side – two points per match – DONE

April 9th 2021- foursome matches – 20 players a side – two points each per match 

August 6th 2021– four ball matches  20 players a side- two points each per match

November 19th 2021- singles matches – 20 players a side – two points each per match &  JAWS WORLD CUP team crowned


Any JAWS Shark can join this world cup but will be a part of either the Asia team if he / she is Asian or the Rest of the World team if from outside Asia 

Players of each side can be changed per round (not necessarily the same 20 have to play all 4 rounds, this is at the discretion of the Captain & Vice Captain of team.
