Frank Holt, young pro from Savannah, Georgia who has gained the title of the "Sam Snead of Putt Putt", breezed through the 108 hole 216 par route in the fifth national PPPGA tournament of the 1960 season on June 25 in Tampa, Florida. He shot 195, an amazing 21 under par, for first place money of $1,000.00. His national winnings had already totaled $1,450.00 prior to the Tampa tourney, plus an additional $100 won for placing first in the May15th Augusta, Georgia PPPGA local, and third place money of $15 won in a pre-season PPPGA tournament in Savannah, Georgia.

Placing second was Bob Williamson of Jacksonville, Florida, who has traveled the PPPGA circuit since its opening Dallas, Texas tourney and has placed in the money in each of the 5 tournaments. Williamson shot a 206, 10 under par, for $500. Third place money was split by Herb Seaton of Johnson City, Tennessee and H.H. Hardester of Orlando, Florida, both shooting 210, good for $150.
