Four Clubs Play Doesn't Stall Pmga


Armed with only three clubs and a putter, members of the Payson Men's Golf Association played a spirited "low net by flights" tournament May 21 at Payson Golf Course.

At the conclusion of the day, Jim Dalgleish was crowned the king of the fray for carding a first-flight winning tally of 62.

Hot on his heels were runners-up Rick Korth (66) and Tim Ernst (68). Korth also pocketed closest-to-the-pin prize money by swatting to within 35 feet, 9 inches of the flag on No. 2.

The battle for second flight honors turned into a torrid shoot-out involving Armand Werle, Hugh Templeton and Ralph Lindo.

Werle's 65 and closest-to-the-pin honors on No. 5 (13 feet, 5 inches) earned him first place in the flight. Templeton (67) was second and Lindo (68) third.

Dick Gyde played his way to a first-place finish in the third flight over silver medalist Dick McNatt and third-place finisher Bob Hendrie. Gyde turned in a tally of 63. McNatt finished at 66 and Hendrie at 67.

Other closest-to-the-pin winners include Mike Curtis (No. 8; 6 feet), Dick Harding (No. 14; 12 feet) and Ralph Lindo No. 17 (6 feet, 6 inches)

Next up for members of the PMGA is a "Select Drive-ABCD" formatted showdown tomorrow (Wednesday) at PGC.
