Morgan marks 10 years on the green

YEAR 12 girl Morgan Lewis is celebrating a decade of playing golf, the Bargara Junior Classic tournament just another notch on her belt.

The three-day tournament finishes today and involves female and male golfers from Queensland, a qualifier for the tough Junior Masters at the end of the year.

Morgan, who goes to Chanel College, was hopeful she could bring out her best swing ahead of the comp.

"I am going to push pretty hard to do well," she said.

"The environment does play a factor, because every day is different. Even practising on the Gladstone golf course is different each day.

"You have to be able to control what you are doing and if your swing is off, you've got to get that back on track."

Morgan's no stranger to competition golf, she first picked up a club when she was seven and has competed in may tournaments.

But fitting it in with school is a test.

"It's very hectic at times. I have to use my time well at school so I can play golf all afternoon," she said.
