Morgan Wins Ralphs Classic

By Associated Press

Gil Morgan, who turned 50 and became eligible to play on the tour just 11 days earlier, birdied the first five holes and shot 5-under-par 66 Sunday to win the $800,000 Ralphs Senior Classic.

Morgan, in just his second senior event, earned $120,000 and the distinction of becoming the youngest winner in the history of the tour for players 50 and older.

Chi Chi Rodriguez missed a 4-foot par putt at the 18th hole to finish one shot behind Morgan and in a tie with Jim Colbert for second place.
