Survived a three-man three-hole aggregate play-off in Denmark on June 29 to become the first American winner of the European Amateur Championship.

Survived a three-man three-hole aggregate play-off in Denmark on June 29 to become the first American winner of the European Amateur Championship.

The 6ft 9in Morrison tied with compatriot Preston Summerhays and Ireland’s Max Kennedy on nine-under-par and that sent them back onto The Scandinavian course after German Tim Wiedemeyer, one ahead with one to play following four successive birdies, finished with a quadruple-bogey nine.

Morrison had himself taken a six at the 18th, three-putting from only four feet, but on his return to the hole his birdie gave him the title and a place at Royal Troon.

The University of Texas player, who went into the event 38th on the World Amateur Golf Ranking, had reached the last 16 of the Amateur Championship a week earlier just as he did last year.

He was also a quarter-finalist in the US Junior championship in 2023.
