Nutting Takes Two Holes For Pwga


Members of the Payson Women's Golf Association discarded their woods and played an "irons only" tournament April 20 on the Payson course.

Because the front nine holes were closed for renovation, the back nine was played twice, which proved to be a good omen for Janie Nutting.

The first time around the course, on hole 14, Nutting copped closest-to-the-pin honors, swatting to within 16 feet, 4 inches of the flag. On the second trip, Nutting took honors again -- this time on hole 17 -- by finishing only 19 feet, 2 inches shy of the hole.

While Nutting was dominating closest-to-the-pin play, Ruth Overton was battling for A flight laurels. In winning top honors with a 65, Overton was three strokes better than Laura Meyocks and Joyce Karens, who tied for second.

In the B flight, Joyce Goff (67) was first and Jeannie Stevens (69) second.

Dorothy Back took the C flight crown by carding a 67. Joan Johnson (70) was runnerup and Rowena Marrs (71) the bronze medalist.
