Fitts having career year in amateur golf

Bookmark and Share

After graduating college, Morgan Fitts is supposed to be taking it easy.

The rest of the state's golfers certainly wish she would.

"Different pressure so I've just been practicing here and there and it's been pretty good so far.  16 I love being competitive.  I love winning.  I like having that competition with other people.  Golf is one of those sports where you can't play defense so you have to play good.  And if you don't play good then it's not going to be there, so that's what I like, it's all on you."  Fitts says.

The summer golf season has been all about the former Jackrabbit.  She became the first woman to win the state matchplay and medal championships in the same year.

"I think now I've learned what it's like to be under pressure and things like that.  I've learned how that you need to get up and down, and how too scramble and grind, even if you're not playing well or hitting it well.  You always have to grind."  Morgan says.

Morgan can't stay away from the game, or her former program.

"I'll probably still stick around the SDSU team and help out there."  Fitts says.

"She wants to see it succeed beyond her years here which is a very unselfish characteristic of her.  And so I'm really looking forward to that, and I know the girls are too.  To still have her around and still have her be a role model for the younger girls that are coming on to the team.  And we do have a lot of young girls that are on the team rit now."  SDSU Head Golf Coach Jared Baszler says.

"I'm gonna make sure that they're doing what they're supposed to because I'm kinda the mom of the group!"  Fitts says.

And who better to take the Jackrabbits to school?
