Believe it or not, Payson Women’s Golf Association members were deliberating trying to miss the green on some of their shots during a “Lagging” formatted tournament played April 9 at Payson Golf Course.

PWGA spokeswoman Judy Mackenzie explains why — “Once all players are on the green, three, two and one, points are awarded for closest to the pin — in other words, it pays to miss the green as close as possible so you can then chip up close to the pin.”

Shari Cody proved the most proficient at mastering the somewhat unusual tactic scoring 40 points to win the Flight A title.

Mary Cain carded 39 points to claim Flight B honors.

In Flight C, longtime PWGA member Kay Davis emerged victorious with 36 points.

“Kay is our eldest player at 93,” said Mackenzie.

Closest to the pin

In closest-to-the-pin competition, Mackenzie pocketed prize money on No. 5 where her tee shot rolled to within 9 feet of an ace.

Lois Judd won on No. 17 at 30 feet.
