Landra Lands Top Honors In 'Blind 9'


Members of the Payson Women's Golf Association clashed in a "Blind 9" tournament Thursday on the local course.
According to PWGA member Joyce Karnes, the intriguing tournament title meant the competitors played the tournament without knowing which nine holes would be calculated to determine the final standings.
When the nine holes were chosen and the results were turned in, long-time PWGA member Marge Landra, a frequent club champion, took A flight honors with a 31. Landra also pocketed closest-to-the-pin prize money on hole 14 where she swatted to within 14 feet, 5 inches of the cup.
In B flight, Shirley Smith was crowned champion with a 33.
Glenda Cook's tally of 36.5 was good enough to earn her C flight accolades.
By tallying a 33 in D flight, Joan Johnson finished first.
