Tyler Golfer Loses Bid For State Amateur Title

Former Lee standout golfer Carrie Morris came up just short in her bid for the WTGA State Amateur Championship, losing in the finals this afternoon.  The TCU standout lost to 4-time state amateur champ and former LPGA player Mina Hardin 5 and 4. 

"I'll definitely take it," Morris said afterwards.  "It was worth it.  It was a great tournament. Mina is definitely a great player, so it was a good match. This definitely tests my game to see what level I'm at.  I think my game has definitely improved a step, or level up from this past year at collegiate tournaments, so I think from this tournament, going into my college tournaments, I think I'll play much better."

Hardin is now a five-time winner of the state amateur championship, although she hasn't won since 2000.  Her first title, ironically, came ten years ago right here at Willow Brook.

"This win feels a lot better than the previous four," Hardin said.  "It's been a long time since I did it.  Willow Brook has been so nice to all of us, to have us here.  And, it just feels like coming home."

Hardin was the first Mexican citizen to play on the LPGA Tour back in the early 1980's.
