Pmga Championship Play Closing


Terry Lindsey and Ralph Lindo took first flight laurels in a Payson Men’s Golf Association-hosted individual low-net and low-gross tournament played Aug. 12 at Payson Golf Course.

Lindsey won the low-gross battle with a 75. Lindo took low-net scuffles at 69.

Hot on his heels was Troy Neal at 71.

In the second flight, Warren Mulcahy’s 85 was tops among the low-gross players.

In low net, Richard Ceyler and Tony Mularski carded identical scores of 76, but Ceyler took second and Mularski fell to third on a scorecard playoff.

Herb Sherman made his mark by pocketing closest-to-the-pin prize money on two holes.

The former high school teacher and coach prefers to call that feat “double dipping.”

So, he double dipped on No. 2 and No. 17. His shot on No. 17, was just 2 feet, 2 inches shy of an ace. On No. 2 he was within 17 feet, 2 inches of the pin.

Other winners were Morris Kropf (No. 14; 14 feet, 1/2 inch), Russ Morris (No. 8; 6 feet) and Lindsey (No. 5; 4 feet, 8 inches).

While most players were competing in the low-net and low-gross tournament, others were locking horns in the club championship. The final round will be played Aug. 26 when Jessie Smith meets Frank Szakal for the club title.

In the first flight from the white tees, Doug Talbot plays Gary Campbell and in the second flight, Sherman and Holmes meet.

In the third flight, Tom Dahl will battle Gary Rovetto.

In the first flight from red or closer tees, Larry Baker will go up against Jim McCutcheon.

Don Gyde meets Ward Johnson in the second flight.

“Following the matches we’ll have the annual PMGA putting championship,” Sherman said.

Larry Baker is the defending champion.
