Hot Putters Make The Game


Putting was the name of the game for members of the Payson Women's Golf Association.

"We held a low putts contest in conjunction with our state medallion tournament," said PWGA member, Joyce Goff.

The medallion tournament, which is played over the course of four weeks, will conclude the last month of June. In the putting contest, Joyce Karnes shot her way to top gun honors in A flight with 29 putts over the course of 18 holes.

"She had the hot putter," Goff said.

Mary Cain finished with 32 putts to win the B flight competition. In C flight, Connie Gyde took first with 35.

Silver medalists in the flights included Laura Meyocks (A; 31), Kay Davis and Sharon Vaplon (B tie; 33 each) and Jinnie Barnes, Claudia Bullard and Dorothy Meek (C tie; 36 each).

Mary Cain won closest to the pin on honors No. 8 (14 feet, 2 inches) and Blanche Nyberg was closest on No. 14 (13 feet, 2 inches).

In addition to hosting the state medallion tournament, PWGA play in the annual three-week eclectic tournament begins June 13.
