Trio Guns Down Last Turkey Shoot Match


Keith Talley, Dick Harding and John Calderwood have holstered bragging rights as the Payson Men's Golf Association's most accurate turkey shooters.

The top-gun trio fired their way to those privileges Nov. 1 during the final round of a three-round individual low net Turkey Shoot tournament held at Payson Golf Course.

Talley claimed top honors in the first flight with a 66. In the second flight, Harding carded a 64, to pan the gold.

Don Gyde and Calderwood tied for first in the third flight with identical scores of 64. The blue ribbon, however, went to Calderwood on a scorecard playoff.

Trailing Talley in the first flight were runner-up Larry Smith (66) and bronze medalist Rick Korth (69). Talbot took the silver in the second flight by posting a 68. With a 69, Tony Mularski was third.

Don Gyde's 64 was good enough for unner-up honors. Bill McKenna (67) was third.

Ironically, none of the flight placers pocketed closest-to-the-pin prize money.

Which meant, the placers were probably being hosted by the five closest-to-the-pin champs at the 19th-hole clubhouse celebration.

The winners were Doug Bailey (No 2; 15 feet, 5 inches), Jim Livingston (No.5; 9 feet, 6 inches), John Waring (No. 8; 13 feet), Troy Neal (No. 14; 5 feet ? inch) and Jessie Smith (No.17; 7 feet, 11 inches).
