When Lucy Maish of the Payson Women's Golf Association invited Dean Buckley to be her tournament partner, she was picking a winner.
The pair playing in a Jack and Jill Tournament July 9 at Payson Golf Course carded a net 57 to win top honors.
The battle for second place ended in a four-way tie among duos that all finished at 58. The runners-up included the teams of Joyce Karnes/John Calderwood, Joyce Goff/Ralph Lindo, Ruth Overton/Jack Greenshield and Alesha Calderwood/Bud Drummond.
Judy Nehl and Richard Ceyler finished third with a 59.
Closest-to-the-pin tournament winners were Laura Meyocks (No. 5), Herb Sherman (No. 8), Ruth Overton (No. 14) and Ralph Lindo (No. 17).
In the annual tournament, members of the PWGA invite a male counterpart in the Payson Men's Golf Association to be their partner.
A similar fray will be held Sept. 27 when the PMGA hosts is annual Buck and Doe Tournament.
Tomorrow (Wednesday), the PMGA will host an individual low-net tournament at Payson Golf Course.
