Former national champion Sean Morris posted the only under-par round of golf to win the two-day Constant Spring Golf Classic with his new equipment at the weekend.

Morris finished 11 shots ahead of second-place William Knibbs on his way to capture the men’s 0-6 category on the very challenging par 70 Constant Spring Golf course in Kingston.

Aman Dhiman was further back in third.

Morris scored two-over-par 72 on day one, and three-under-par 67 on day two for a combined score of one-under-par 139. His scorecard was littered with birdies on both days after starting with birdies in each round. Overall, he posted nine birdies, six bogeys, and a double bogey on hole number 15 in the opening round.

Morris’ best performance came during the front nine on the second day when he bagged three birdies and no bogeys for a score of three-under-par 32.

“I am on my way back with some new equipment so the journey is going to be a hard one,” said Morris. “After the tournament I played at Caymanas, I knew there was something in these clubs but I still have some adjustments to do so I am still not as confident as I would like to be with them.”

Knibbs, another former national champion, carded three-over-par 73 and seven-over-par 77 for a total score of 10-over-par 150.

Dhiman’s scores were 83 and 79 for a combined score of 162.
