Argyle defeated Congressional, 8-1, second week of the Women's District Golf Association Division One team matches at Fairfax yesterday.
Argyle defeated Congressional, 8-1, and took first place in the standings with 15 points to 12 1/2 for Army Navy which had a hard time beating Columbia, 5 1/2-3 1/2. In the other match, Washingtonian, a newcomer to Division One, defeated Bethesda, 6-3.
Gerry Cush and Rosemary Marlowe, wife of Woodmont pro Tony Marlowe, teamed well for three points against Pam Smyth and Grace Goodall.
Cush has won the Maryland State title three times, the Middle Atlantic twice and the District twice.
Pa Thurner, Congressional champion, and Joan Crampton registered the only point for their team against Diane Rankin and Carol Mensel.
Some confusion resulted because three holes on the Fairfax course, 13, 14 and 17, were closed and probably will be all summer to repair damage from the severe winter. Three temporary holes have been carved out of the practice range.
Betty Torray of Bethesda, playing with Joan Gould, helped her team by chipping in from 40 feet on the 11th and rolling in a 30-foot putt on the 16th.
Jackie Shiff and Cloey Hardesty, playing in the third bracket for Argyle, helped themselves with birdie chips on the 13th and 14th to blank Congressional's Jean Pohanka and Bonnie Jonas.
