The Payson Women’s Golf Association joined forces with Chaparral Pines members to support Rally For the Cure with a benefit golf tournament. A record 83 women turned out for the benefit and raised more than $3,000 for the fight against breast cancer.

Payson Men’s Golf Association member Larry Smith is on a roll.

In a scramble tournament two weeks ago at Payson Golf Course, Smith was a member of the winning foursome and pocketed closest-to-the-pin money on No. 5 with a tee shot that was just 11 feet short of the flag.

On April 29 in a PMGA two-man best ball tournament, also at PGC, Smith teamed with Terry Lindsey to win low-net honors in the first flight. He was also once again a closest-to-the-pin champion, this time on No. 8 where he swatted to within 5 feet, 10 inches of an ace.

In winning the A flight, Smith and Lindsey posted a 57.

Also during the two-man best ball fray, Ed Kuhns and Steve Holes took first in the B flight with a 56.

In the red flight, which was played from the closer tees, Warren Mulcahy and Don Gyde took first at 51.

This was the first tournament the PMGA has played a flight from the red tees.

Second place flight winners were Gary Roverto and Mike Curtis among the A players, Tom Dahl and Phil Scott in B flight and Jim Livingston and Ross Robertson in red play.

Rovetto/Curtis finished at 58, Dahl/Scott also carded a 58 and Livingston/Robertson came in at 57.

Kevin Kelly and Buddy Morris teamed for a 58 and were third in the A ranks.

Steve Vincent and Steve Peacock’s 59 earned the duo a third-place finish in B flight.

The red flight did not have a third-place team.

Closest-to-the-pin winners other than Larry Smith were John Calderwood (No.5; 5 feet, 10 inches), Jessie Smith (No. 2; 5 feet, 10 inches) and Steve Vincent (No. 14; 2 feet, 3 inches and No. 17; 5 feet, 9 inches).

Next up for the PMGA is a “Select Drive — ABCD” formatted tournament May 13 at PGC.

On May 20, the PMGA will host the Verde Santa Fe men’s club in a low net flighted tournament.
