July was an exciting month for the Payson Women’s Golf Association. July is the month that the annual Medallion Tournament is held. The tournament runs all four Tuesdays of the month, with golfers turning in their two best 18-hole rounds. Taking top honors in the low gross competition was Claudia Thompson, followed by Lois Judd in second and Shari Cody in third. Winning the low net competition was Marilyn Schaal. Mary Cain and Mary Jones tied for second and Susan Torrens finished third. Thompson and Schaal will represent the PWGA at the State Medallion in Phoenix in December.
The Eclectic was also held in July. Winning the A Flight was Thompson, followed in a second place tie between Cody and Cain. Jan Burns won the B Flight, with Torrens coming in second. C Flight honors went to Earlene Brewer, with Jeannie Griffin taking second. The D Flight was won by Schaal, followed by Kay Davis in second.
Closest-to-the-pins went to Cody and Thompson on July 5; Cody and Schaal on July 12; Claudia Bullard (both CTPs) on July 19; and Karen Peterson and Isabella Sockrider on July 26.
Weekly play on July 26 also included a low putt competition. Thompson won the A Flight, followed by Cody in second. The B Flight ended in a first place tie between Mary Jones and Kelly O’Neill. The C Flight also ended in a first place tie between Brewer and Schaal.
