Young golfer gets Shark Junior Tour recognition

MORGAN Lewis has capped off 2014 with yet another golf trophy, this time finishing as the Shark Junior Tour 18 hole gross winner.

If the Gladstone golfer's shelf of silverware was not full enough already, it is now going to be overflowing.

An award reserved for the golfer who has the lowest cumulative total over the tour's stops, Lewis won the battle after an outstanding season.

The win does not come as a surprise, with the Gladstone golfer dominating the circuit, including a number of junior open wins and runner-up performances.

"I had a feeling but it was close," she said. "It was a pretty good year, I won three junior opens so that was good and I got a lot of seconds as well," she said.

At the start of the season, Lewis did not have aspirations of winning the tour.

But after taking out her first junior open, another Gladstone Women's Club Championship and being consistently at the peak of the leader boards, the honour took care of itself.

Chances are she will be back in the mix fighting again next year too, with the 16-year-old primed for another big season.

The Sunshine Coast is next though, Lewis qualifying to travel south curtesy of a top round on the Shark Tour.

"My best tournament was Yeppoon, because for that I qualified for an event on the Sunshine Coast," she said.
