Laura Meyocks has added yet another honor to the long list of accolades she's piled up as a member of the Payson Women's Golf Association.

Her most recent laurel was earned at the Arizona State Medallion Tournament played once each week during June.

Laura Meyocks will represent the PWGA in the Arizona Women's Golf Association championships to be held next December in Scottsdale.

By carding a 167 in the low gross scoring competition, she staked claim to her second successive state medallion championship.

With the win, Meyocks qualifies to represent the PWGA in the Arizona Women's Golf Association championships to be held next December in Scottsdale.

Meyock's state victory was also her second major tournament win in the past year. Last fall, she won the PWGA Club Championship.

In the low net scoring of the state medallion shootout, Mary Jones emerged victorious with a card of 131.

In both the low gross and low net scoring, winners were determined by their two best scores on the four rounds played.

In addition to state medallion play, members of the PWGA 18-hole group locked horns the past three weeks in an eclectic tournament played in flights with low net scoring.

"We could improve our score hole by hole each week," PWGA member Joyce Goff said.

As Meyocks did in the state medallion showdown, she played her way to the tournament crown in A flight, posting a 59. With a 61, Nancy Little was second.

In B flight, Jan Burns was first with a 55 and Jones took second at 59.

Connie Gyde won C flight, posting a 62. Ethel Zakariasen's 66 was good enough for second place.

Kay Davis and Little were closest to the pin winners on No. 5. Jan Burns and Shari Cody took honors on No. 8 and Burns and Little were closest on No. 14.

On No. 17, Jones and Goff pocketed the prize money.

Next up for the members of PWGA is the annual Jack and Jill Tournament, July 11, at Payson Golf Course.

For it, PWGA members invite a men's association player to be their partner in a best ball event.

The defending champions, Bonny Singer and Terry Lindsey, won last year with a 56. Benny Burns and Mary Jones earned the title in 2004 scoring a 57.
