Morri Rose Elected to Oklahoma Golf Hall of Fame
(via golfoklahoma.org) Morri Rose is the founder and longtime director of the Oklahoma Junior Golf Tour. That tour is credited with helping raise the profile of Oklahoma junior golf and sending hundreds of junior players on to collegiate scholarships since its inception in 2002.
Rose, a fine amateur player in his own right, started the OJGT at the suggestion of former Oklahoma State golf coach Mike Holder as a way to give Oklahoma juniors a competitive fall tour that would keep their games sharp year round. The tour has been credited by professional golfers such as Talor Gooch, Taylor Moore, Quade Cummins, Austin Eckroat and others as being crucial to their development. Rose’s love for the game and all of his competitors has been a treasure for the state and credited by many for lifting Oklahoma from relative obscurity into one of the nation’s junior golf powers.
We are very proud of Morri’s accomplishments with the OJGT and will be excited to see him inducted!
