Karnes Emerges As Top Gun In Pwga Championship


With a two-day, low-gross card of 174, Joyce Karnes emerged as the top gun in the Payson Women's Golf Association Club Championship tournament.

On the first day of play, Oct. 6, Karnes jumped into the front of the tournament field winning the low-gross scoring with an 87.

The low-net winner was Cheryl Kinnerely, who turned in a 64.

According to club spokesman Dorothy Back, Karnes secured the tournament gold on the second day by again turning in the low-gross score.

"Winners were also chosen for a combined low net for the two days by flights," Back said.

In that scoring, Ruth Overton captured the A flight title with a 140. Trailing were runners-up Laura Meyocks and Ginny Barnes, who tied with identical scores of 148.

In B flight play, gold medalist Joyce Goff had a 144.

Cherly Kennerly finished as the C flight crown bearer carding a 127.

In closest-to-the-pin competition on the first day, Glenda Cook pocketed prize money on hole 14. Ruth Overton was closest on hole eight.

Second-day winnings went to Ginny Barnes on 15 and veteran Marge Landra on 17.
