Burns Heats Up The Links


Jan Burns had a day on Payson Golf Course to write home about.

After leading her foursome to a win in the scramble tournament May 18, she pocketed closest-to-the-pin prize money in the 19th hole clubhouse celebration. Her winning shot on No. 5 rolled to within 14 feet of the pin.

Marge Landra also was a recipient of closest-to-the-pin cash. Her shot on No. 17 was 21 feet, 10 inches shy of the flag

The closest-to-the-pin honors was Landra's second this month. In an odd-or-even formatted tournament played a week earlier, Landra won the honors after her shot on No. 5 landed 22 feet, 7 inches from the pin

On the championship team with Burns in the scramble tournament were Judy Neal, Alesha Calderwood and Wilma Smith. The four tallied a 74.

In the battle for the silver medal, the foursome of Joyce Karnes, Mary Cain, Joyce Goff and Brenda Baker tied a team comprise of Laura Meyocks, Sharon Vaplon, Dorothy Meek and Billie Gibbs. Both teams finished with a 77.
