Some might think of Jerry McGuire as the sports agent in the 1996 hit movie that spawned the battle cry of workers across America -- "Show me the money," but in Payson Men's Golf Association circles, Jerry McGuire is the club member who finished as runner-up in the low gross first flight tournament played Sept. 13 at Payson Golf Course.
McGuire also pocketed closest to the pin prize money on No. 5 where his tee shot rocketed to within 13 feet, 7 inches of an ace.
In the first flight, the only player to outperform McGuire was Terry Lindsey who finished first at 71. Jack Gibbs carded a 90 to take third.
In the low net scoring of the first flight, Gene Howell (63) was first, Roger Poole (65) second and Larry Baker (66) third. The battle for the second flight low net honor turned into a neck-and-neck race between Ralph Lindo and Tony Mularski. Both finished at 66. On a scorecard playoff, Lindo was first and Mularski second. Doug Talbot posted a 69 to claim third.
In the third flight, Russ Zakariasen won with a 65. Bill McKenna (66) was runner-up and Jim McCutcheon (70) the bronze medalist.
Closest to the pin winners other than McGuire included Frank Szakal (No 2; 18 feet, 3 inches), Gary Vaplon (No. 8; 6 feet, 11 inches), Warren Mulcahy (No. 14; 1 ft. 9 in.) and Peter Foster (No. 17; 3 ft., 7 in.)
