Payson Men’s Golf Association members vie for match play crown
A pair of Payson Men’s Golf Association longtime stalwarts, Troy Neal and Ken Althoff, locked horns in the A-flight championship round of the group’s annual match play tournament. When all was said and done in the one-on-one links skirmish played May 16 at Payson Golf Course, Neal claimed victory 6-up/4. Which means in the match play format, the two golfers competed hole by hole and Neal was ahead by six wins with just four holes to play. Winning is commonplace for the two golfers who are frequent first-place finishers on the PMGA spring and summer circuit.
