One wisecrack punk wrote, "We may not hit great shots, we may not have the best equipment, we may never break 100 BUT we love teeing up and hitting that tiny white ball into that tin cup(eventually). We like our golf to be serious and brutal. (Although our scores may make everyone laugh)."

And let me just add, WE ARE ALSO ABLE TO SUBMIT PROPERLY WRITTEN SCORECARDS. We may be still learning this weird game of golf as we go along, but we actually don't have to write like kindergarten children.

Now learn this, below are examples of properly and badly written scorecards.

So please help the committee do their job of sorting out the scores faster (so they can eat together with the others too) by following these simple guidelines:
(So the next time you enter a bigger tourney, you won't be embarrassed)

1. Write clearly with decent sized numbers.

2. Just write down the actual strokes your marker and you yourself take. (Any other numbers in those agonisingly small boxes are too confusing)

3. Write down your front 9 and back 9 scores on its appropriate boxes.

4. After you complete your round, sit down with your marker to finalise and confirm each holes' score. Then each of you sign the scorecard off and submit it to the committee. (This actually takes less than 5 minutes)

5. To finalise a scorecard, you actually have to workout your gross score (total strokes) and your nett score (total strokes minus handicap) and write it down on your scorecard and again, sign it.

6. If, during a round, you and your marker have a dispute over a ruling, you are allowed to play two balls for that hole and write down your two scores for that hole. After you complete your round, contact the committee to get a ruling and finalise a score for that particular hole and

7. Please be honest with your scores!

REMEMBER!!! Signing a scorecard with scores that don't add up to the total scores result in disqualification in the tournament. Therefore it is imperative for you and your marker to be responsible for your own scores.

Let's make golf a fun and honest game for everyone.

Play the ball as it lies
Play the course as you find it
And if you can't do either, do what is fair
But to do what is fair, you need to
know The Rules of Golf.

Attention fellow GolfPUNKs,

After careful consideration and trying to putt at Pantai Mentiri Golf Club today, the GolfPUNK committee has decided to postpone the Pantai Punk Classic to the month of August. This is due to the greens at Pantai Mentiri being repaired for the whole month of July.

Green fee for non-members:
- $70(new punks)

2.) Please write clearly on your scorecards and only your scores and those you're marking.
3.) Only one mulligan allowed at the first hole you start at.
4.) Please finish your putts and do not pick it up, this is a competition.

AssalamuAlaykum and Greetings GolfPUNKS!

Yesterday's 2nd Round League game came full circle as the RBA Golf Course was raided by punks of all shape, sizes, swings and colours. A warm welcome to the new joiners and hello again to the members of GolfPUNKS 2007-2008 who made the event a success.

A long and glorious golfing morning started with 25 Punks roughing out the searing July heat. There were missed putts for birdies, pars, bogeys, doubles, triples and so forth. Balls were lost, found again and then eventually lost. Some mulligans were taken, but not that many.

But in the end when all is said and done, the golfer is alone, fighting against his inner demons, his ball, mother nature and the course. Some of you may be new players who've only just started playing and some might be seasoned amateurs. However long we've played and whatever background we've come from, we stand united as golfers, searching for the perfect swing and the lowest score.

A quick note on the league structure:
1.) Every player will automatically get one point when they play a GolfPUNK event.
2.) Players in the Top 10 of a League event will gets points ranging from 10 points to 1 point.
3.) The TOP 10 ranked players will be awarded prizes and trophies at the end of season MINOR event. There are also novelty prizes and lucky draws. A mid-season MINOR will also be announced soon.
4.) The season is a 9 month long season and will end in March 2008.
5.) Only players who play a minimum of 4 events are valid for the FINAL SEASON RANKINGS.
6.) The league is open to any golfers with a decent swing and can hit the ball without killing himself or anyone on his flight. Who says golf isn't dangerous?

Congratulations to the winner of THE IVANTY, Monsieur IZAT HJ ZAIMI who scored a spectacular score of 90 with his 24 handicap. Rest assured his handicap will be reduced. The aim of the league is firstly to play golf regularly amongst friends and acquaintances. Secondly to compete against our fellow golfers and to improve our golfing ability, be it our driving, iron play, chipping and putting. And most importantly to learn this beautiful game of golf, of its rules and regulations and improve our manners and etiquette.
