Card Of 115 Takes Top Spot In 'Six-Six-Six' Fray


Most linksters only dream about the sterling golf round turned in by Jessie Smith.

Competing June 6 at Payson Golf Course in a Payson Men's Golf Association four-man "six-six-six" formatted tournament, Smith carded a gross score of 64 to propel his team to a first-place finish in the first flight.

On the team with Smith were Tom Dahl, Don Kissebreth and Bill McKenna. The four finished at 115.

In second, one stroke off the winning pace, was the foursome of Tyson McKee, Roger Poole, Frank Karnes and Tom Eaglesham.

Terry Lindsey, Jerry McGuire, Gary Rovetto and Spencer Roth finished third with 123.

In the closest-to-the-pin competition, Tom Eaglesham turned in the shot of the day on No. 8, where he was 2 feet, 6 inches shy of an ace.

Other winners were Terry Lindsey (No. 2, 29 feet, 6 inches), Morris Kropf (No. 5, 10 feet, 10 inches), Tom Eaglesham (No. 8, 2 feet, 6 inches) and Armand Werle (No. 17, 6 feet, 6 inches).

In the unusual scoring format, the scorecards counted in the final tally varied on different holes.

"Three out of four (scorecards) for holes one through six, two out of four for holes, seven through 12, and one out of four for holes 13 through 18," PMGA member Dick Ceyler said.
