Men's Golf Plays Poker For Day


Poker was the play of the day for members of the Payson Men's Golf Association.

The unique format for the May 10 tournament at Payson Golf Course included foursomes playing low net and counting three scores on par 3 holes, two scores and par 4s and one score on par 5s.

The team of Russ Morris, Larry Smith, Bill Cain and Sil Eigler carded a 109 to claim first place.

One stroke off the pace was the foursome of Jack Greenshield, Ed Muhr, Tom Mallett and Jerry McGuire.

Frank Karnes, Russ Zakariasen, Morris Kropf and Jack Gibbs finished at 11 and in third place.

With a 112, John Pauley, Warren Mulcahy, Ed Kuhns and Doug Talbot were fourth.

Bill Cain was closest to the pin for the day, launching a tee shot on No. 14 that rolled to within 2 feet, 6 inches of an ace.

Don Castleman was a two-time prize money winner -- turning up closest on No. 12 with a lie of 5 feet and on No. 5 with 6 feet, 6 inches.

Other winners included Frank Szakal (No 8, 6 feet, 10 inches) and Dick Harding (No. 2, 6 feet, 4 inches).
