Golfers Roll With Orange-Ball Scramble


The Payson Men's Golf Association's latest round at the Payson Golf Course was a four-man team, orange-ball and scramble tournament.

Scoring for the event is a combination of the orange ball players' score for each hole and the gross score of the remaining three scramble players.

First flight winners for the tournament were David Rutter, Roger Poole, Terry Lindsey and Mike Curtis, who shot 133.

With a score of 137, second-flight winners were Doug Talbot, Larry Smith, Bill McKenna and Jack Greenshield.

Third-flight winners, with a score of 137, were Herb Sherman, Don Nicholas, John Calderwood and Ken Althoff.

Closest to the pin winners included Poole, whose shots on No. 8 -- 11 feet, 1 inch -- and No. 17 -- 8 feet, 3 inches -- earned him double the prize money and respect from fellow golfers for one great day of golf.

Sherman also pocketed prize money for his 7-foot, 1-inch lie on No. 14, in addition to his team's top finish.

Don Kissebreth took No. 2 with a 12-foot, 3-inch lie and Ralph Lindo came closest to the pin on No. 5 with a shot that landed 15 feet, 7 inches away from the cup.
