Good golfers can play a great round in great weather. Great golfers can play golf in any kind of weather, including cold, rainy conditions like what Morgan Academy faced Monday.

The Senators won again Monday, scoring a team total 311 to win at Troy Country Club. Jones Free   shot a 73 and was the low medalist for the Senators.

“I’m proud of them,” said Morgan coach Ira Wagoner. “It was  very bad conditions on a little tougher golf course than we played last week.”

The Senators had also won last week’s tournament hosted by Fort Dale.

Morgan’s Grayson Harvill, Will Alison and Allen Todd joined five other Senators who had previously qualified for the state tournament.

A player qualifies for the state tournament by breaking 90.

“We didn’t start out too well, but they kind of settled down,” Wagoner said.

“The rain quit a little bit toward the end, it was still cold but they were soaked by then. They did as well as I could’ve expected.”

Morgan’s next match is likely to be March 27 at Monroe’s Tournament.
