Members of the Payson Women’s Golf Association closed their 2012 season with a costumed Jellybean Game. Season play resumes in March 2013


The PWGA 2012 season officially ended Oct. 30 with the members dressed as witches and participating in the Jellybean Game. Picking a certain colored jellybean after each hole determined which team member’s score would be used on that hole. Taking first in the Jellybean Game was the team of Karen Peterson and Jan Burns, followed by the team of Marcy Hewlett, Sharon Valpon and Mary Jones in second. Closest-to-the-pin winners were Karen Peterson and Kelly O’Neill.

On Oct. 2 the game of the day was Odd or Even, where players either get to count their scores on the odd holes or the even holes. In the A Flight, there was a first place tie between Marcy Hewlett and Judy Mackenzie. First in the B Flight was Jan Burns, with Joyce Goff coming in second. Marilyn Schaal won the C Flight, with a tie for second between Kay Davis and Mary Jones.

Closest-to-the-pin winners were Judy McFall and Joyce Goff.

The Club Championship was held Oct. 8-9 and Oct. 16. Karen Peterson took Club Championship honors and was also the Low Gross Medalist. The Low Net Medalist was Jan Burns. Low Net Club Champion in the A Flight was Claudia Thompson, Judy Mackenzie in the B Flight and Mary Jones in the C Flight.

Closest-to-the-pin winners on Oct. 8 were Jan Burns and Judy Mackenzie; Judy Mackenzie and Joyce Goff on Oct. 9; and Isabella Sockrider and Lois Judd on Oct. 16.

On Oct. 23 the members had the chance to Beat the Champ (Karen Peterson). Judy Mackenzie succeeded in beating Peterson with a net score of 69. Peterson’s net score was 72.

Closest-to-the-pin winners were Judy McFall and Kay Davis.

There were several ladies with birdies in October: Karen Peterson (7), Judy McFall (1), Donna Smid (1), Judy Mackenzie (4), Marcy Hewlett (5), Shari Cody (2), Claudia Thompson (2), Joyce Goff (1) and Claudia Bullard (2).

October chip-ins were recorded by Jeannie Griffin, Shari Cody, Karen Peterson, Joyce Goff, Isabella Sockrider, Mary Cain, Sharon Vaplon, Alesha Calderwood. Claudia Bullard, Judy Mackenzie and Marcy Hewlett had two chip-ins each.

There was just one eagle scored in October and that honor goes to Jan Burns.

Although the 2012 PWGA season has officially ended, many of the members continue to play throughout the winter, weather permitting. Call Kelly at (928) 363-0121 if you are interested in joining them. Also, mark your calendars for March 26, when the 2013 PWGA season kicks off with breakfast at Misfitz 260 Café.
