Local Linkster Bags Elusive President's Cup


The President's Cup was the one Payson Women's Golf Association tournament championship that had eluded Laura Meyocks.

She was able to check the missing win off her list Aug. 7 and 8 at the Payson Golf Course when the longtime local linkster won the elusive crown with a 135.

"My first win in the (President's) Cup," she said.

Cody also made the play of the tournament on the par 3, 130-yard No. 8 where she came within 10 inches of a hole-in-one.

Although she didn't score the ace, she did pocket closest to the pin prize money for her amazing second-day tee shot.

Nancy Little finished fourth in the tournament at 144.

Karen Peterson was a closest to the pin prizewinner on the second day with a drive that rolled to within 5 feet, 11 inches of No. 14.

On the first day, winners were Connie Gyde (No. 17; 8 feet, 6 inches) and Joyce Karnes (No. 5, 11 feet, 8 inches).
