Don Castleman and Tony Mularski hooked up to win top honors in the first flight of a Payson Men's Golf Association tournament held April 3 at the Payson course.
In the two-man, best-ball format, the pair carded a tally of 55.
With a 57, John Calderwood and Ralph Lindo finished as flight runners-up.
In the second flight, the Jim Furimsky and Victor Kostecki tally of 55 earned them gold-medal honors.
Heck Heckathorne and Butch Krauss finished as silver medalists with a 57.
A near hole-in-one was the highlight of the tournament when Tom Dahl nearly aced hole No. 8. Dahl's tee shot left him just 2 feet 5 inches shy of the flag. The effort, however, was good enough for closest-to-the-pin prize money.
Because the back nine holes of the Payson Golf Course are being renovated, the tournament was played in two go-arounds of the front nine holes.
Dahl's shot occurred on the first go-around.
The second time at No. 8, LeRoy Robinson was closest with a shot that was within 4 feet 9 inches of the flag.
Also on the second go-around, Tom Mularsky was closest on No. 2 (31 feet 5 inches) and Frank Szakal closest on No. 5 (6 feet 9 inches).
Winners on the first go around were Szakal (No. 5; 6 feet, 9 inches), and Tom Dawl (No. 2; 10 feet, 10 inches).
Days earlier in the first of a series of club mixers involving the Payson Women's Golf Association and the PMGA, Don Nicholas, Joyce Karnes and Jack Greenshield played their way to first-place laurels.
Finishing second was the team of John Calderwood, Herb Sherman and Bill Nilsen.
Armand Werle, Judy Neal and Frank Karnes were third.
