Colceri Finishes Top Of His Flight


Jim Colceri's gold-medal first-flight finish and closest-to-the-pin tee shot on No. 2 earned him top honors in the Payson Men's Golf Association two-man scramble played last week at Payson Golf Course.

In the low-net-by-flight scoring format, Colceri teamed with John Pauley to card a tournament-low 62.

His closest-to-the-pin shot, which was 7 feet 8 inches shy of the flag, earned him prize money.

Also in first flight play, Chris Cumpton and Mike Carter joined forces for a 64 that was good enough for runner-up honors.

A 64.2 earned Troy Neal and Ron Thompson the bronze medal.

In the second flight, Dick Ceyler and Tom Castas took home the gold with a 62.6. The battle for second place turned into a heated showdown involving the teams of Doug Talbot/Herb Sherman and Tom Mallett/Don Nicholas. The two teams tied with 64. In a scorecard playoff, Talbot and Sherman were declared the silver medalists; Mallett and Nicholas were relegated to third.

Other closest-to-the-pin prize winners were Talbot (No. 5; 7 feet, 8 inches), Bud Drummond (No. 8; 8 feet, 10 inches), Ceyler (No. 14; 2 feet, 7 inches) and Armand Werle (No. 17; 2 feet, 6 inches).
