JAWS VS DOGS
Marked the date of the inaugural Fins & Fangs Cup between one of Jakarta’s oldest and well established Golf Societies: The DOGS (Djakarta Old Golf Society) and Jakarta’s most recently formed Golf society: JAWS (Jakarta, Albatross, Weekday Society).
The DOGS kindly accepted the proposal to duel in the good spirit of Golf and camaraderie for golfing bragging rights amongst the Jakarta Golf community.
The format of play was Fourball Better Ball, Nett based match play with 12 teams of 2 vs 2, so 24 players per team and the day saw a wide range of golfers with varying skill levels, teaming up among their golfing teammates, in the most exciting and purest form of golfing competition: ‘Matchplay’.
The venue was Permata Sentul, the canny Thomson and Wolveridge Golfing layout known for its quirky playing conditions, highlighted by very small and slippery greens, narrow fairways and dramatically undulating fairways, the base for the current 6 week DOGS golfing eclectic event with the Fins and Fangs matchplay falling on Week 3 of their Week 6 cycle.
In conclusion it was JAWS who were crowned as champions by a slim margin of 1 match, with 5 wins, 4 losses and 3 draws of the inaugural Fins and Fangs Cups 2020 Inter-society match play, a glowing tribute to both teams fighting spirit and the well balanced team selection and player combinations by both teams captains and committee members in the run up to the event.
2 hole in one’s, same flight, same hole, same day !
Both Fitrat and Joshua, both made a hole in one on the par 3, 15th hole at Permata Sentul GC on the 21st of August, 2020 and unknowingly walked into the rarest of rare history books with greats like Justin Thomas and Rickie Fowler.
The chances of 2 players making a hole in one on the same flight at the same hole are 1 in 144 million.
Congratulations to these great white SHARKS.
