Only two weeks after scoring the seventh hole-in-one of his career, 83-year-old Tony Mularski flirted with yet another ace during a Payson Men’s Golf Association three-man scramble tournament.
Playing May 6 at Payson Golf Course, Mularski swatted his tee shot on No. 2 to within 10 feet, 9 inches of the hole.
Although he didn’t pickup his eighth ace, Mularski did pocket closest-to-the-pin prize money.
In addition, he was a member of the winning team along with Tim Ernst, Steve Vincent and Ward Johnson. The links crew carded a 121.
The foursome of Rick Korth, Gary Vaplon, Ed Kuhns and Jim Livingston garnered second place, with a 123.
Also at 123, but taking third, was the team of Phil Wagner, Jack Greenshield, Steve Holmes and Jack Gibbs.
At 128 and in fourth were Gary Campbell, Larry Baker, Dick Ceyler and Ron Baade.
Closest-to-the-pin winners other than Mularski were Jim Livingston (No. 17; 13 feet, 2 inches), Ed Quigley (No. 8; 5 feet, 7 inches), Livingston (No. 17; 13 feet, 2 inches) and Ernst (No. 5; 7 feet, 1 inch).
Next up for the PMGA is an interclub meet May 20 at PGC against Verde Santa Fe.
