Jack Greenshield’s card of 65 and exceptional tee shot on No. 8 earned him an A flight first-place finish and closest to the pin prize money in an Oct. 14 Payson Men’s Golf Association individual low net tournament.
Playing Oct. 14 at Payson Golf Course, Greenshield out-dueled Troy Neal for the flight title and was just 6 feet, 11 inches shy of an ace in his closest to the pin win.
Neal finished with a 66, and Gary Campbell took third at 67.
In B flight, Ed Flores posted a sizzling 62 to take first. Trailing were Keith Talley (second, 67), Gary Rovetto (third, 67) and Steve Holmes (fourth, 70).
Bill Mullins’ 68 was good enough to nail down C flight laurels. With a 73, Tom Dahl was second.
Dick Harding swung to third place with a 78.
In the “red” flight, which is played from closer tees, Don Gyde tallied a 69 and was first.
At 78, Larry Baker claimed second. Morris Kropf was third with a 70 and Warren Mulcahy claimed forth at 71.
Closest to the pin winners other than Greenshield were Gary Rovetto (No. 2; 8 feet, 5 inches), Roger Poole (No. 5; 9 feet, 8 1/2 inches), Mike Curtis (No. 17; 1 foot, 2 inches) and Holmes (No. 14; 9 feet, 11 inches).
