Pmga Spreads The Wealth


The prize money was well spread around at a Payson Men’s Golf Association low gross-low net formatted tournament in which no player pocketed both closest-to-the-pin and championship bracket prize money.

The tournament was played July 20 at Payson Golf Course.

In low gross play, Ken Althoff took honors in A flight with a 75 and Mike Anderson’s 88 was good enough to win the B flight title.


Flight winners at the PMGA Club Championship held July 13, 20 and 27 include Gary Rovetto (C flight), Ed West (Yellow flight) and Troy Neal (B flight). Not pictured is A flight winner Jessie Smith.

In A flight low net play, Frank Szakal was first at 63, and Terry Lindsey took second, posting a 65.

Tom Dahl was first in B flight low net play at 66, and with a 69, Ed Kuhns was second.

Joel Terry took the closest-to-the-pin honor for the tournament with a tee shot on No. 5 that left him just 3 feet, 8 inches shy of an ace.

On No. 8, Bill Shedd was closest at 5 feet, 3 inches.

Russ Morris won on No. 17 at 7 feet, 8 inches, and Oscar Garcia claimed honors on No. 14 at 8 feet, 5 inches.

Steve Vincent’s lie on No. 2 of 11 feet, 3 inches earned him CTP laurels.

Next up for PMGA members is a “Two Man Reverse Scramble” tournament Aug. 3 at PGC. Teams will be picked by computer.

With the Club Championship, July 13, 20 and 27, in the record books, the next major tournament on the PMGA schedules is the President’s Cup set for Aug. 24 and 31. Format will be “Stroke Play with Handicaps and Scratch.”

The Arizona State Championship two-man scramble to be played Sept. 21 is the last major tournament on the 2011 schedule that ends Nov. 2
