Lady Niners Member Stacking Up Honors


Ann Adams turned in a month’s worth of golf accomplishments that would kindle pride in the finest of linksters.

The longtime Payson Women’s Golf Association nine-hole member opened her winning stretch by taking low-net honors in the Arizona State Medallion qualifying tournament.

She followed it up with a second-place finish in a fielder’s choice-formatted tournament coupled with a closest-to-the-pin win.

Next, she garnered runner-up laurels in a PWGA specialty tournament and later was on the winning foursome in a best-ball scramble.

Finally, she was one of three Lady Niners to be recognized for scoring a chip-in during the past month.

Also in PWGA play, Kelly O’Neill took the low-gross crown in the Arizona Medallion tournament out-dueling runner-up Judy McFall and Isabella Sockrider. Trailing Adams in low-net play was silver medalist Brookie Coleman and third-place finisher Flo Moeur.

In the fielder’s choice tournament, O’Neill was once again a winner.

In the low-net tournament played July 9, Sockrider took first, Mary Quigley second and McFall third.

Sockrider also pocketed closest-to-the-pin prize money.

On July 16, Lady Niners enjoyed the unique privilege of adding up their six best holes for the final score. Billie Gibbs and Agnes Bower tied for first. Quigley was second.

The following week players were pitted to another uniquely formatted tournament that allowed them to change scores on three holes to par. Gibbs took home the title, McFall and Quigley tied for third.

In the best-ball scramble, on the winning team with Adams was Debbie Nichols, Norma Fallers and Moeur.

Those honored for chip-ins in July, along with Adams, were Sockrider and Bower. O’Neill was cited for her birdie.
