Popeye Flexes Forearms At Payson Golf Course


As if he was wolfing down spinach and tooting his corncob pipe much like his cartoon namesake, Popeye Clay hooked up with Jim Dalgleish to take first place in a Payson Men’s Golf Association two-man best ball tournament held April 28 at Payson Golf Course.

The winning pair carded a 57 in A flight competition to edge the team of Bill Shed and Steve Holes for the tournament title.

In B flight, Jim Livingston and Bob Hendrie finished at 56 and in first place.

Ed Quigley and Steve Vincent posted a 57 to finish second.

In the closest-to-the-pin competition, the PMGA had a rare “no winners” on No. 2.

There were prize money winners on the other par 3 holes including Phil Wagner, No.5, 6 feet, 3 inches; Alex Armenta, No. 8, 4 feet, 8 inches; Phil Scott, No. 14, 3 feet, 9 inches; and Troy Neal, No. 17, 4 feet, 7 inches.

Next up for the PMGA members is a challenging “three clubs only low net flighted” tournament to be played May 12 at PGC.
