The Wilson Country Club quartet of Patch Wilkinson, Priscilla Brewer, Beth Rhyne and Lisa Matthews continued to thrive in fall golf competition, winning low gross in Saturday’s Wedgewood Ladies Golf Association Four-Lady Superball at Wedgewood Public Golf Course.
Wilkinson and company fired a 14-under-par 58 over the par 36-36--72 Wedgewood layout.
Claiming net supremacy via a card playoff was the foursome of Mary Ann Sutton, Georgia White, Linda Watson and Jeanette Sasser with a sizzling 21-under 51.
Also posting a 51 but finishing second was the group of Debbie Barefoot Pat Krause, Bonnie Byrd and Connie Johnson.
The margin of victory in the gross competition was three shots. Carding a 61 and finishing the runner-up was the Willow Springs Country Club team of Sue McGuire, Shirley Baker, Lynne Cates and Susan Baker.
Also shooting a 61 and taking third was the foursome of Sallie Kearns, Carol Bryant, Carol Owens and Mary Williams. Debbie Webb, Sandra Schrock, Vickie Leggett and Marcia Davis teamed for a 63 and fourth place.
A card playoff also determined third place net.
Placing third with a 52 was the quartet of Pat Capps, Debbie Boyette, Katherine Johnson and Debbie Barbour. Salving fourth with a 52 was the squad of Melba Hobgood, Sherry Sullivan, Kay Manning and Brenda Dickerson.
The competition for individual prizes produced a rarity — a tie for hitting the tee shot closest to the pin on a par-3 layout. Byrd and White shared that distinction on No. 10.
Other closest-to-the-pin winners were Baker on No. 5, Rosie Johnson on No. 7 and Byrd on No. 12.
Hitting shots closest to the crooked line were Jean Pochis on No. 9 and Bryant on No. 17.
Played in ideal conditions, the tournament attracted 15 teams.
