Association Golfers Hit Links In September


Low net and four man select drive was the play of the past week for members of the Payson Men's and Women's Golf Associations.

The PWGA 18-hole group battled in the low net tournament won by Isabella Sockrider, in the first flight, with card of 67.

The battle for second place in the flight turned into a dead knot between Laura Meyocks and Mary Jones. Both turned in identical scores of 70.

With a 74, Janice Burns was third.

In the second flight, Joyce Karnes netted a 69 to take the gold. Alesha Calderwood's 75 was good enough for second place.

Sockrider won the closest to the pin contest on No. 17 with a tee shot that rolled to within 31 feet, 8 inches of the flag.

In the PMGA select drive event, Troy Neal, Jack Greenshield, Herb Sherman and Bobby Bryant joined forces for a tally of 167 and first.

For Neal, the day turned into a banner outing. Not only was the former high school basketball coach on the winning team, he also pocketed closest to the pin prize money on two par 3 holes.

On No. 2, he was within 23 feet, 1 inch of the hole and on No. 14, he was 2 feet, 11 inches shy of an ace.

Terry Lindsey, Russ Morris, Tom Dahl and Frank Karnes garnered second place in the tournament. The four scored a 175.

Posting a 179, the foursome of Larry Smith, Gary Vaplon, Sid Gee and Tony LeGault was third.

Closest to the pin winners other than Neal were Frank Szakal (No. 5; 8 feet), Armand Werle (No. 17; 7 feet, 9 inches) and Smith (No. 14; 2 feet, 11 inches).
