David Liebenguth knew he posted a strong round during the final day of the Men's Town Golf Tournament at Griffith E. Harris Golf Course. Yet he didn't know how impressive it was until his wife told him hours later at the tournament's awards ceremony.

Playing out of the Senior flight, Liebenguth shot a 1-over-par 72 Sunday, the lowest score of any player in any flight. His sizzling round catapulted him to the Senior flight title (76-72-148).

"I think next year I may go back to the Townwide group and try to win that title," an excited Liebenguth said. "My wife just told me I had the lowest round, I can't believe it."

Liebenguth, who had the second lowest score behind Townwide champion Paul Pastore in the entire tournament, led Steve Gordon (78-82-160) by just two strokes heading into the second round. But he quickly burst ahead of the field on Sunday.

"This feels really good," said Liebenguth, who placed second in the Townwide flight years ago, falling short on the 18th hole. "It was just a matter of having confidence in my game. I didn't feel nervous this year and I knew if I played my game it would be tough to catch me. Today, I made some nice birdies."

Ray Bakshi was the runner-up in the Senior flight (79-80-159), followed by Gordon and Al Oliva (82-79-161). Gary Lynch earned low net honors (135). Chris Hoffman garnered the Super Senior title, carding a 165 (82-83-165). Alfred Major finished second (82-86-168), followed by Bob Barker (89-85-174).

"I put together two good rounds, which is a great feeling," said Hoffman, who placed fifth last year. "I had some good pars. It was a treat to play here because the course played great."

Bruce Willey was the low net champion (133).

"I hit a lot of fairways and made some putts," Willey said. "The greens were receptive for some good putting today."

Ed Dorian was the Senior A division winner, carding a 176 (92-84). Manuel Rodriguez-Novas finished second (183).

"The Griff is a deceptively tough course," Dorian said. "You have to keep the ball in front of you in the fairway and the greens can be tricky."

Dorian's sons Nick and Kenny played in the tournament's Townwide flight.

"I enjoy watching my sons play in this tournament more than playing in the tournament myself," Dorian said. "It's really special to have all three of us competing in it."

Mark Fox had the bet low net score in the Senior A group (143).
