Brandon, MS: For the first time since 2011, the Mississippi PGA Professionals claimed the William Earl “W.E.” Morgan Cup from the Mississippi Golf Association Amateurs this past Sunday and Monday at Patrick Farms Golf Course. The W.E. Morgan Cup is an annual event that puts top Mississippi Amateur and top Mississippi Pros together in a Ryder Cup Style 36-hole format.
The weekend did not start out promising, as the Amateurs won the 4-Ball matches on Sunday 4-2 and tied with the Pros in the Foursomes match later that day 3-3. However, on Monday, the Pros made a comeback in the Singles matches 7.5-4.5 and claimed the overall victory 12.5-11.5.
