Garland Williford found the cup on a breaking 28-foot putt for the lone perfect shot of the day and Steve Pinkley and Larry Joubert had the best scores in the divisions as the District Chip & Putt medals were decided at the Practice Tee in Bossier City Sunday (April 26).
Pinkley totaled 135 inches for the lowest score in chipping and Joubert was best in putting (96 inches). He also had the second best figure of the day in chipping (180 inches).
Each contestant had three shots each in chipping and putting. The chipping distances were 40 feet, 25 feet and 20 feet from the cup. Putting distances were 30, 28 and 18 feet. Golfers had to take into consideration left or right breaks. Each effort was measured from its landing spot in inches to the cup and totaled in chipping and in putting, with the low total winning.
