Women Compete In Unusual 'Ts And Fs' Match


While the Payson Women's Golf Association was competing in an unusually formatted tournament on the Payson course, its PMGA links counterparts were in Williams for a four-way interclub meet.

In the PWGA showdown, play of the week was a "Ts and Fs" tournament in which scoring was based on only the nine holes that start with a "T" or "F." After that score was tallied, one-half of the player's handicap was subtracted.

Veteran PWGA member Marge Landra, who has played in and won about as many tournaments as any association member, said the "T" and "F" format was not only unique, it was also the first one she had ever played in.

"If the hole wasn't (numbered) 10, 12, 5, 15 something like that your score didn't count," she said.

Landra wasn't able to play her way to top-two honors in any of the three flights but did pocket closest-to-the-pin prize money on No. 8.

On No. 14, another longtime association member, Kay Davis, was closest to the pin.

In A flight final standings, Laura Meyocks outdueled Sharon Vaplon for top honors. Meyocks finished with a 30.5 and Vaplon carded a 32.5.

With a tally of 30, Blanche Nyberg claimed the B flight title. Runners-up Joyce Goff and Jerry Quisenberry both carded silver medal scores of 32.5.

In C flight, Billie Gibbs claimed the crown with a 32. Tallying a 32.5, Mary Gillilan was second.
