‘David and Goliath’ at PSWGA league day

The Pagosa Springs Women’s Golf Association played a “David and Goliath” format for its league day, June 15.

The game included the longest and shortest holes on the Pinon course Nos. 1, 3, 4, 6 and 8; and the Ponderosa course Nos. 2, 5, 8 and 9. After the round, the ladies tallied their scores for these nine holes less half their handicap for their aggregate score. The par rating for these courses is 71.

Cherry O’Donnell captured first place in the First Flight with a 32.5; Jan Kilgore and Julie Pressley tied for second, each with a 35. Leslie Fluharty won the Second Flight with a 33; and there was a three-way tie for second placing among Kay McKee, Doe Stringer and Bonnie Hoover, each with a 37. Third Flight honors went to Jane Baker with a 31, Cindy Simpson was second with a 31.4, and Donna Gregory was third with a 36.

In continued links action, the association featured a low putt format for its league day, June 22. There were three categories for the number of putts for the round: total putts for the round; total putts for the front nine (Meadows); and total putts for the back nine (Pinon). These courses have a par 72 rating.

In the First Flight, the total low putt honors for the round went to Nancy Mackensen with 30. Barbara Sanborn won the front nine total with 14; and Kay Crumpton and Jan Kilgore tied for second place for the back nine, each with 16. In the Second Flight, Kay McKee won the 18-hole low total with 32. Cindy Simpson won the front nine with 15, and back nine low putts went to Carrie Weisz with 14. In the Third Flight, Carole Howard won the 18-hole low total with 30; Shirley Hunter won the front nine with 16; and Claudia Johnson won the back nine with 16.

This year’s Pine Cone Classic Charity Golf Tournament is slated for July 13 and 14. In last week’s article about the tournament’s charity for the event — Seeds of learning Child Care and Education Center — it was stated that all monetary donations to Seeds would receive a 100-percent tax credit. It should read that each donation is eligible for a 50-percent tax credit.

Anyone wishing to make a donation to this charity can call Kay McKee at 731-1618.
