Just after sundown in Toronto on Wednesday, Red Deer’s Ken Griffith sunk one of the biggest putts of his life.
The 58-year-old holed a 10-foot birdie putt on his final hole of the day to solidify a provincial team title at the Canadian Senior Men’s Championships at Cedar brae Golf Club.
The Alberta trio, Griffith, along with Brian Laubman (Edmonton) and Frank Van Dornick (Camrose) combined for a second-round score of 4-under-par to capture the Phil Farley Memorial Trophy with a team total of 282.

Ontario finished as the runner-up just a single shot back of Alberta.
Griffith, Laubman and Van Dornick also won the provincial team title two years ago.
Through two rounds of individual play, Gene Elliot of West Des Moines, Iowa, leads at five-under-par. Griffith, after a second-round 69 sits tied for second at two-under-par with Mark Brewer of Pickering, Ont.
Griffith slipped to tied for seventh after the third round on Thursday. He shot a four-over 75 and is plus-two for the event. Elliot is the clubhouse leader at nine-under-par.
The tournament wraps up on Friday.
