LYNCHBURG, Virg. (May 1, 2011) -- Ben Lasso of Falls Church fired a 67 in Sunday's final round to stay ahead of the field and win the 2011 Fox-Puss Invitational at Boonsboro Country Club.

Lasso (70-70-67---207) was four shots better than the runners up Jon Hurst of Fredericksburg (72-70-69---211) and Martinsville's Keith Decker (69-71-71---211), who tied for second place.

Steven Liebler of Irmo finished with a stellar round, firing a 5-under 67 on the final day, but couldn't pull off the miracle. He went 71-76-67---214 and finished in fourth place.

ABOUT THE Fox Puss Invitational

54 hole stroke play format tournament was given the name “FOX PUSS” to honor two of Boonsboro’s members that for many years had devoted their talents and time to amateur golf in the State of Virginia and the Lynchburg area, Mr. H. M. “Fox” Blankinship and Mr. Charles “Puss” Hancock. Both of these gentlemen were former Presidents of the Virginia State Golf Association. This is the ruling body for Amateur golf within the State of Virginia. Additionally, Mr. Hancock was a long term President of Boonsboro Country Club.

The first tournament was held late in 1971 and has continued each year. While we have had to cancel the tournament three times over the years, we have been able to retain a high level of competition for the contestants. Our Champions and contestants have been State Amateur Champions; United States Amateur Champion; British Amateur Champion; and Walker Cup Members.
