SOUTHERN PINES, N.C. — Will Morgan shot 70 on Saturday at Mid Pines Inn & Resort to edge U.S. Amateur Four-Ball finalist Sherrill Britt at the Moore County Amateur.
The 18-hole stroke play event is played at the beautiful Mid Pines, just outside Pinehurst, which hosts the annual Mid Pines Invitational.
Morgan and Britt fired 67 on Friday and trailed Pete Lineburger by a stroke, but Lineberger shot 75 in the final round and took third. Meanwhile, Morgan and Britt went down to the wire with Morgan's 70 edging Britt's 71.
Britt, along with partner Greg Earnhardt, were finalists at the inaugural U.S. Amateur Four-Ball Championship, where they lost to Nathan Smith and Todd White at The Olympic Club.
In the Senior Division, Gary Strickfaden posted 146 to beat Chuck Wilkins by two. Strickfaden entered the last day with a two-stroke lead over Garland Yates and Dave Davis.
