Men's Golf Season Gets Windy Start


A new season of play opened up Wednesday for the Payson Men's Golf Association with a windy day for the 48 participants.

The wind didn't deter the four-man scramble team of John Calderwood, Terry Lindsay, Don Nicholas and Gary Vaplon from taking first in the tournament at Payson Golf Course with a score of 53.4.

Second-place honors went to the team of Bill Cain, Richard Jones, Ralph Lindo and Bill McKenna for shooting a 55.1.

George Frandsen, Jack Gibbs, Mark Revelle and Jesse Smith comprised the third-place team, scoring 55.3.

Fourth place went to the team of Ward Johnson, Ed Kuhns, Troy Neal and Herb Sherman with 55.4.

McKenna and Cain did some double-duty, pocketing prize money for closest to the pin honors on the eight hole with a lie of 3 feet, 2 inches and the 17th hole with a lie of 15 feet, 8 inches, respectively.

Other winners were Jack Greenshield (No. 2; 4 feet, 5 inches), Tom Dahl (No. 5; 12 feet) and Richard Jones (No. 14; 9 feet, 10 inches).

The scramble tournament allowed each foursome to use 10 percent of the team's handicap.
