Laura Meyocks To Defend President's Cup Title

The win shouldn't have been anything new for the veteran linkster -- she's won about every PWGA title possible.

But the victory was especially sweet because she'd never before won the title.

"My first," she glowingly said at the conclusion of the tournament.

In 2005, Joyce Karnes won the president's title with a 138.

Meyocks tuned up for her run at a second cup championship during a "Three Blind Mice" formatted tournament played July 20 at PGC.

In it, Meyocks teamed with Sharon Vaplon and Glenda Cook to take first with a tally of 211.

Shari Cody, Judy Neal and Blanch Nyberg, who were second at 212, supplied the champs' stiffest competition.

In the closest to the pin shoot outs, winners were Joyce Goff and Karen Peterson (No. 8; 10 feet, 4 inches). Goff missed an ace on No. 14 with a tee shot that rolled to within 11 inches of the hole.

The nursery rhyme title of the tournament was donned because "no one knew who their partners were until the end of play," PWGA member Joyce Goff said.

In an 18-hole fray played July 17, members were allowed to toss out their three worst holes of the round.

In the first flight, Karnes won with a 50. Goff was second at 51.

In the second flight, Kay Davis and Neal dead knotted with identical cards of 46.

Nyberg swung her way to third-flight honors by posting a 50. In the battle for second, Dorothy Meek and Glenda Cook tied at 51.

Vaplon was the only closest-to-the-pin winner pocketing prize money on No. 17, where she was 14 feet, 4 inches away.
