Six PSWGA members traveled to the Cortez Conquistador Golf Club for the annual Team Cup Invitational golf tournament, Aug. 11. Eighty-three women from the Four Corners area competed in the 18-hole event in an individual stroke play format.

Loretta Campuzano captured first place net in the Championship Flight (6.7-20.1 handicap), with a 90; Josie Hummel won third place gross in the First Flight (20.3-23.8 handicap), with a 98; and Barb Lewis won the longest drive contest in the Second Flight (24.3-29.0 handicap). Also representing Pagosa were Bonnie Hoover, Sue Martin and Doe Stringer.

In continued action, the association featured a “Three Pigs in a Poke” format for its league day, Aug. 11. All the participants were entitled to throw out their three worst scores in the round, take the net scores for the remaining 15 holes, and subtract one-half of their handicaps for the aggregate total. The ladies played the Pinon Ponderosa course, with a par 71.

Carole Howard captured first place with a 53.5, and broke 100 for her round for the first time ever — congratulations, Carole! Second went to Kay McKee with a 58; Cherry O’Donnell placed third with a 59; fourth went to Donna Gregory, with a 60.5; and Audrey Johnson and Barbara Sanborn tied for fifth, each with a 61.5.
