LUBBOCK, TX (July 24, 2005)--The Texas Golf Association West Texas Amateur Championship came down to the final nine holes of play with Trey Todd of Abilene birdying two of his last three holes to capture his first TGA title. Jim Neumann, of Frisco matched Todd shot for shot all day long and only trailed by one heading into the par five 16th hole. Todd’s two putt birdie on hole #16 gave him a one stroke cushion heading into the final two holes of play. Jeff New from the Woodlands put the heat on the final group by posting a (210) six under par tournament total. New fired a blistering final round seven under par 65 which vaulted him from tied for sixteenth to second place overall. However Todd finished in champion style by holing an 18 foot birdie putt on the demanding par 4 18th hole to win by two strokes.

Chuck Bubany of Lubbock completed his dominating performance by firing a two under par 70 saving his best for the final round. Bubany’s amazing performance left the rest of the Senior and Super Senior division players shaking their heads. Robert Cleland of Trophy Club shot a solid one under par 71 to grab second place alone.
