Herb Sherman is regaining some of the luster he enjoyed as a winning basketball coach at Scottsdale Coronado High School.
His penchant for coming out on top emerged in a two-man blind draw tournament played May 22 at Payson Golf Course.
There, Sherman pocketed closest to the pin prize money on No. 2, where his tee shot rolled to within 16 feet, 2 inches of an ace.
In low net scoring, Sherman teamed with Oscar Garcia to card a 134 and take fourth place overall.
The duo of Ron Fisher and John Calderwood took top tournament honors, finishing at 128.
With a 129, Terry Lindsey and Bill Mullins were second. Larry Smith and Ross Robertson joined forces for a 132 and were third.
Dave Rutter (No. 5; 7 feet, 1 inch), Tim Ernst (No. 8; 11 feet, 2 inches). Larry Smith (No. 14; 9 feet, 3 inches) and Ralph Lindo (No. 17; 9 feet, 11 inches) were also closest to the pin winners.
The PMGA returns to PGC tomorrow, Wednesday, for a “2 Man Ryder Cup” formatted tournament, which will feature “alternate shots best ball individual” scoring.
