Pwga Draws Pair Of Aces


It's deja vu all over again in Payson Women's Golf Association action.

During a low-net tournament Sept. 7 at Payson Golf Course, Jan Burns swatted a hole-in-one on the same No. 14 that fellow PWGA member Glenda Cook had sunk one during the Aug. 9 President's Cup tournament.

Like Cook, Burns never saw the ball fall.

"No one saw Jan's ball go in the hole until someone checked the hole and there it was," PWGA member Alesha Calderwood said.

Following Cook's ace about a month earlier, almost the same scenario unfolded.

"When we got to the green, all we saw were three balls, so we starting looking for the fourth," Calderwood said. "Glenda looked in the hole and there it was. It was very exciting,"

Among the PWGA contingent, aces are not everyday occurrences.

"We've gone for years without one and now we have had two in a month," Calderwood said.

Although Burns posted the ace, she was not among the top two finishers in any of the four flights.

In flight A, Joyce Karnes outdueled runner-up Laura Meyocks for first place. Karnes finished at 68 and Meyocks had a 73.

In flight B competition, Judy Neal finished with a 77 and in second place behind Calderwood who posted a 75.

Kay Davis staked claim to the flight C crown with a 77. An 82 earned Cook the silver medal.

Wilma Smith and Ginny Barnes carded identical scores of 81 to tie for flight D honors.

In the closest-to-the-pin competition, Mary Jones pocketed prize money on No. 5 for a tee shot that rolled to within 24 feet of the flag. Meyocks won on No. 17 where she was within 33 feet, 8 inches of an ace.
