KENNESAW, Ga. – Head coach Bryant Odom announced on Monday the addition Adam Morris to the Kennesaw State men’s golf roster. Morris, who joins the Owls program after two years at Dalton State, has signed an acceptance of admission and will enroll in classes this fall.
“Adam is a solid player with a lot of competitive experience on the national scene and will immediately add depth to our lineup. He had a really nice summer with some low scores, including a win in the Signal Mountain Invitational,” Odom said. “As a Marietta native, Adam is already acquainted with many of the team members and should transition nicely into the competitive and closely-bonded culture we seek to build for KSU golf.”
A native of nearby Acworth, Ga., and graduate of North Cobb Christian School, Morris played a career-high 23 rounds as a sophomore and recorded a 74.8 scoring average during the 2016-17 season. He produced four top 10 finishes including a career-best third place showing at the Golfweek NAIA Spring Invitational, and shot a career-low tying 69 during the first round of the Bojangles Tennessee Intercollegiate.
Morris appeared in four tournaments as a freshman and recorded a 74.1 scoring average. He registered a season-best ninth place finish at the Chick-Fil-A Invitational.
The rising junior is coming off a tie for 30th at the Georgia Amateur Championship that concluded Sunday at Westlake Country Club in Augusta. He carded rounds of 71-69-75-72 for a 3-over par 287 total.
While at North Cobb Christian, Morris was a four-time team Most Valuable Player and earned individual medalist honors at state sectionals en route to leading the Eagles to a 2015 state championship.
Morris will join a Kennesaw State program that is coming off an NCAA Championships appearance, seventh straight NCAA regional showing and second consecutive ASUN Conference championship in 2017. The Owls return six players from last year’s team and welcome three newcomers in Morris, Brady Keran and Justin Kim for the 2017-18 season.
